Basketball legend Dennis Rodman has become known in recent years for his trips to and from North Korea. It’s a fact Rodman and Kim Jong Un have developed a friendship, as the two have been photographed together on numerous occasions.
So it’s not necessarily stunning that Rodman came forward this week, claiming he knows what the North Korean dictator wants from the U.S.
And he says he’d be happy to tell the president—in a private meeting, that is.

“I’ve been trying to tell Donald since day one: ‘Come talk to me, man…I’ll tell you what the Marshal wants more than anything…It’s not even that much,’” Rodman told the Guardian. When reporters asked what Kim wanted, he replied, “I ain’t telling you. I will tell him [Trump] when I see him.”
Rodman feels he should be used as a peace envoy to the DPRK.
The ban on travel to North Korea that was put in place a few months ago, however, prohibits Rodman from continuing his tours there.
“If I can go back over there … you’ll see me talking to him, and sitting down and having dinner, a glass of wine, laughing and doing my thing. I guess things will settle down a bit and everybody can rest at ease,” Rodman explained to reporters. “I think a lot of people around the world … want me to go just to see if I can do something.”
