Dennis Rodman does karaoke with Kim Jong

In response to the violent rhetoric being exchanged between the United States and North Korea now, Rodman says that President Trump should reach out to Kim Jong-un for, "A friendship conversation".

Former basketball star Dennis Rodman of the US shows pictures he took with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to the media, upon arrival at Beijing Capital International Airport, in this combination picture of frames shot September 7, 2013.

Obviously, "reaching out" in the midst of nuclear tensions can never be a viable option.

Rodman emphasized that he's "all about bringing unity as far as sports, no politics".

"Every time I see him, he's always calm, he's always smiling, especially when he's with family", Rodman told Good Morning Britain.

"For me to go over there and see (Kim) as much as I have, I basically hang out with him all the time", he said, according to Reuters.

As a result, he seems to acquire some “lady luck” which puts the brakes on his ability to spoil the games of others. The success of Ocean’s 11 has led to the development of a new spin-off, Oceans 8 which is due to be released in 2018.

The majority of the conversation with hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid centered on their activities, such as singing karaoke, riding horses and just sharing laughs without discussing politics.

"We ride horses, we hang out, we go skiing", he continued. Kim is a fan of basketball, just like his late father Kim Jong II.

Rodman has visited North Korea several times since 2013, most recently in June.

"If they could just sit down and have some kind of mutual conversation. and just start a dialogue, I think that'll open a door just a little bit". The five-time National Basketball Association champion supported Trump during his 2016 political campaign and appeared as a contestant on Trump's reality television show, "Celebrity Apprentice".

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 United States this June. It's just amusing the fact that me saying something like that, and people say, "oh my God, Dennis Rodman protecting the marshal of North Korea"... "I just go over there to be an ambassador for sports", Rodman added while speaking highly of the people of North Korea. In the past he met you, so our people all know you well.
