"If Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump understand and have a smooth comfortable relationship, smile, laugh, joke".

Rodman said he wants to stay out of politics, but that his attempts to establish a connection on a human level perhaps played some role in making the Trump-Kim summit possible. Rodman said Trump's secretary had called him to say "Donald Trump is so proud of you, he says "thank you". "And I believed in North Korea, and I couldn't even go home". Kept going back. I showed my loyalty and my trustworthy [sic] to this country.
Rodman previously met Un at a basketball exhibition in Pyongyang, North Korea, in February 2013.
