"This is a great day for everybody".

If you were born after the year 1990, it's possible that you know nothing of Dennis Rodman's basketball career. This trip to Singapore, like the last one, is sponsored by potcoin.com, the crypto-currency provider for the legal marijuana industry, Rodman said on Twitter. He even got emotional when discussing the summit on CNN.

"I'm not in this for no money". I never had anyone to hear, see me. Asked to describe Kim, Rodman said the autocratic leader was "like a big kid" who wants to have a good time, but is "trying to protect his people" and his honor. Meanwhile, Rodman's relationship with Trump also goes back years when he appeared on his "Celebrity Apprentice" show.

This has marked a momentous and historic occasion, so naturally, we did expect to see some sort of cryptocurrency-based publicity stunt. Have a handshake, have a smile, have a glass of iced tea.

"I'm out of it". "That's it, sports. I'm just so happy to be here, man".

As the furor around Donald Trump's meeting with Kim Jong-un wound down, one unorthodox diplomat got a personal thank you from White house spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

"It's incredible when I said those things [.] When I went back home I got so many death threats [.] I couldn't even go home I had to hide out for 30 days", he recalled through tears. "If you can do certain things, I would listen, my ears would be open, '" Rodman said. I still kept going back. Trump said that he would know within seconds of meeting Kim whether the summit would go well. "I was the only one". I'm so happy, ' he said.

With President Donald Trump in Signapore for a one-on-one meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, CNN is obviously going to be covering that summit.

Rodman also said that Trump's secretary contacted him to let him know the President was proud of the work he's done in getting the two countries to the negotiating table.

Wherever North Korea is, Dennis Rodman is not far behind.

Rodman said he attempted to open communication between Kim and the presidential administration of Barack Obama following his 2013 visit to North Korea.

But how did Rodman, a five-time National Basketball Association champion once nicknamed "The Worm", become America's unlikely and unofficial ambassador to the world's most repressive regime? It ain't gotta be war.

After wiping tears from his eyes, Rodman explained that he is continuing to advocate for peace between the two nations.
