Former NBA Star Dennis Rodman announced that he is traveling to Singapore to “give support” to Trump and Kim Jong Un during their upcoming summit.
"Thanks to my loyal sponsors from @potcoin and my team at @princemarketinggroup , I will be flying to Singapore for the historical Summit. I'll give whatever support is needed to my friends, President Trump and Marshall Kim Jong Un," he tweeted in Friday.
On Thursday, the White House denied suggestions that Rodman would play any part in the negotiations.
Rodman "is great on the court but negotiations should be left to those who are good at it... Trump is the best," White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told Fox News, adding that he expected Mr Trump and Kim to have "an amazing conversation without Dennis Rodman in tow."
Rodman has visited Kim Jong Un in North Korea on multiple occasions. He was also a competitor on Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2013, but was fired in the sixth episode.
