Dennis Rodman met North Korea’s Sports Minister in Pyongyang on Tuesday, and he asked him to pass a special gift along to Kim Jong Un—President Trump’s The Art Of The Deal.
Rodman has appeared on Trump’s reality television series, The Apprentice, more than once, and has visited Pyongyang four times.

“In the past, our respected supreme leader met you several times and he used his precious time to watch the basketball match with the players you brought here. In the past he met you, so our people all know you well,” Kim Il Guk told Rodman.”And also we feel that you are an old friend.”
The NBA player met with North Korean Olympic athletes, most notably judo gold medalist An Kum Ae.
“All of you guys should be proud of yourselves, because, you know, a lot of people don’t give you guys credit, because this is such a small country, and not many people from North Korea can compete around the world,” Rodman told the athletes. “But for you guys to come back here in your country, with a medal, that says a lot about North Korea, because people don’t really take North Korea so seriously about sports or anything like that.”
Rodman also presented the country’s leader with a “Where’s Waldo? The Totally Essential Travel Collection” and a mermaid puzzle.
He maintained that his trip was unrelated, in any way, to the White House.
