Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson came to Capitol Hill to discuss their strategy for North Korea with both chambers just days after the country conducted its sixth nuclear test.
"I just want to try to straighten things out for everyone to get along together", he said.
Former NBA superstar Dennis Rodman has spoken about how he enjoys skiing and riding horses with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and hopes to "straighten things out" with the North Korean leader in the wake of the ongoing nuclear missile crisis.
Although he might be familiar to you from playing NBA Jam back in the '90s, or his stint on Love Island or Celebrity Big Brother, Dennis Rodman is now arguably more known for his friendship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
"If the president tries to reach out to Kim, I think there would be a great possibility that things would happen", Rodman said.
Obviously, "reaching out" in the midst of nuclear tensions can never be a viable option. I've always said I'm not a politician, not at all.
"I basically hang out with him all the time", Rodman told "Good Morning Britain". As for the latter, Rodman considers him a "friend for life", with the former National Basketball Association athlete revealing that he and Jong-un sing karaoke, as well as ski and ride horses together.
"If he (Kim Jong un) can sideline the US military by holding our cities hostage with missiles, nuclear weapons and potentially even hydrogen bombs, then he may be able to complete what grandfather started", he said, adding he's concerned the country hasn't built enough interceptors.
Now, Rodman's take is worth paying attention to because it seems like he knows Kim better than anyone. We laugh. We sing Karaoke.
Rodman has made several trips to the largely closed country after first being invited by Kim four years ago.
Rodman, who called himself an "ambassador for sports" to North Korea, also took credit for the release of 22-year-old American student Otto Warmbier, back to the U.S. this June.
"I don't love [Kim]", continued Worm. My whole mission and my whole goal was to go over and bring sports, to bring connection to North Korea. He added: It's just amusing the fact that me saying something like that and people saying, "Oh my god Dennis Rodman protecting the marshal of North Korea". "For me to see him gives me a different view about the country, because I see it".
