Mr Rodman was in Singapore for Tuesday's summit, but the White House had said he would play no official role. He appeared on TV wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and a T-shirt from his crytocurrency sponsor.

"Obama didn't give me the time of day", Rodman said.

Wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat, the five-time National Basketball Association champion and longtime friend of Kim Jong Un, became emotional while sharing his role in bringing the two leaders together.

"When I said those things, when I went back home, I got so many death threats. But I kept my head up high, brother", he told Cuomo, who knew to keep quiet until Rodman ran out of steam.

Rodman has known Kim Jong-un for years and even brought a basketball team to North Korea once. "I don't want to worry about the war stuff, I don't know anything about that", he said. "And I believe in North Korea..." "He is a unique person since he has a relationship with both Kim Jong Un and with Donald Trump". I never started this for no money.

Trump left Monday's one-on-one talks touting success and the "excellent relationship" he now has with Kim. During that visit, North Korea released USA college student Otto Warmbier, who died shortly after his return. Everybody came at me and I'm still standing. "I will go back to North Korea, I'm not anxious about that", he told The Post. "And he said, 'Hey, Dennis, I would like to ask you three things".

The Pew poll, conducted in late April and early May, also reveals it is Kim, not Trump, Americans don't trust - even if the research group casts doubt in its report on the meeting between the two leaders having a successful outcome.

He continued, getting increasingly emotional. "I'll tell you what the Marshall wants more than anything".

Rodman says he's good mates with Trump, appearing on the former reality star's show Celebrity Apprentice in 2009 (he was sacked for spelling Melania's name wrong).

"I think the leaders made a good statement today just shaking hands, the main thing is to try and accomplish trust", Rodman told Channel NewsAsia at the Regent Hotel in Singapore.

"I like the guy", Rodman said. He added: "People thought that I was trying to overstep my boundaries, thought I was a dignitary, an ambassador, human relations or something like that".

Dennis Rodman is a man who's very involved in politics.
