"If the president tries to reach out to Kim, I think there would be a great possibility that things would happen", Rodman said. "Every time I see him, he's always calm, he's always smiling, especially when he's with family", Rodman said. They do a lot of cool things together. "We hardly talk about politics, and that's the good thing about that", he said.
Rodman seems to be a favored guest of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, as he's visited the nation several times over the past few years.
North Korea has an intercontinental ballistic missile - the Hwasong-14 - created to carry a thermonuclear warhead and strike targets across the continental U.S. The U.S. and its allies are preparing to significantly increase pressure on Pyongyang while keeping the application of military force on the table.
"For some reason with North Korea we have a big issue", Rodman said. "We ride horses, we hand out, we go skiing".
"I'm not defending him, I'm not defending the fact that what he does as far as his country and his leadership".
"A lot of people will see all the negativity about him [Kim] because [when] a lot of people in America see him on TV, you never see him talk". Whatever concerns or complaints Americans may have about immigration in general, we shouldn't threaten the future of this group of young people who are here through no fault of their own, who pose no threat, who are not taking away anything from the rest of us...
Now, with the situation ultra tense between President Trump and Jong-un, Rodman is offering to "straigthen things out" and thaw the icy relationship between the United States and North Korea.
