Rodman weeps during interview on sidelines of Trump-Kim summit

Dennis Rodman got emotional on CNN when talking about the backlash he's gotten for his controversial relationships with Trump and Kim Jong Un.

Rodman is one of the more unlikely side characters of the Trump era, thanks to his understandable friendship with the US president - and weird one with North Korean dictator.

"It's incredible, when I said those things, when I said those damn things, when I went back home I got so many death threats", Rodman, who was wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat, told CNN's Chris Cuomo. "I'll tell you what the Marshall wants more than anything".

"And when I went home - I couldn't even go home".

"[He should] let Kim Jong-un see him really emotional". I kept my head up high, brother.

Rodman told reporters at Changi Airport that he had travelled to Singapore "to see what's going on" and that he hoped "that things turn out to be well for everyone in the world". I was the only one who felt so. I said: Yes I can. Therefore, it only seems right that Potcoin made an appearance during the meeting between the American and North Korean leaders. "And Kim Jong-un came to me and said: "Dennis - you know what this is the first time someone has ever kept their word to me and my country". "Never discussed, no interest, last place on Earth I want to go to".

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman openly cried on television in a freaky meltdown over the US-North Korea summit. "And today is a great day for everybody, Singapore, Tokyo, China, a great day", Dennis said emotionally in regards to the fact that the day he predicted has finally come.

"I've always been an advocate of involving Dennis Rodman", Clapper noted to Cuomo.

There has been no indication Rodman would be involved in official talks with Kim or Trump.

It marks a contrast from 2014, when Trump tweeted about Rodman being "either drunk or on drugs" in response to the former National Basketball Association star's suggestion the two might travel to North Korea together. Asked if he would meet Kim in Singapore, he said he thought the North Korean leader had "bigger things to worry about", but added that every time he'd met with Kim, "it had been a surprise". He also said that he understands English when he talks about basketball, a sport North Koreans allegedly enjoy. "We don't need a miracle, but we need the doors to be open so we can start fresh".
