The next day, Rodman shared another photo, but this time it was of himself and Physical Culture and Sports Minister Kim Il Guk on Jun. 15, 2017.

Amid a landmark summit between President Donald Trump and the young North Korean leader, Rodman appeared on CNN wearing a "Make America Great again" cap. "It ain't gotta be about war, it ain't gotta be about hatred or what happen in the future or the past", he told CNN.

He also spoke of how happy he was that Trump had agreed to meeting with Kim, which no US president has done before.

NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman, who arrived in Singapore ahead of the meeting, shared his feelings with news anchor Chris Cuomo after the meeting between Trump and Kim got underway.

He added: "But I kept my head up high, brother".

Emblazoned in peace-themed PotCoin.com apparel - the freaky corporate sponsor of Rodman's visit for the impending North Korea-US talks - the five-times National Basketball Association champion touched down in Singapore round midnight on Monday, telling reporters he was here "to see what's going on", and hoping "that things turn out to be well for everyone in the world".

Rodman said he was "brushed off" when he tried to approach former US President Barack Obama about relations with North Korea.

Adam Burniston's Forecast | Storm chances increase this weekend
Tuesday we'll have a break in the humidity with highs topping out at a comfortable 88 degrees in the afternoon. Humidity levels will remain high but the afternoon storms will keep the temperature from rising to high.

It is unknown if North Korea will be willing to put its nukes on the table in talks with the US. "I got so many death threats". I knew things were going to change.

"I'm just happy to be a part of it", he told reporters at Changi Airport.

Trump landed in Singapore a little after 8:30 p.m. local time for the highly-anticipated meeting with the North Korean leader, which is set to take place on Tuesday.

Rodman is one of the few westerners to have met the North Korean leader on visits to the capital city of Pyongyang.

While Rodman won't be part of the official summit, his presence on the sidelines looks to cap off a freaky personal success story of sorts. "I said to everybody, the door will open".

White House officials have said Rodman will play no official role in the diplomatic negotiations.
