Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has has an emotional meltdown on live television revealing he received a call from the White House ahead of President Donald Trump's historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

"Obama didn't even give me the time of day", Rodman said.

According to Reuters, several analysts see the summit as light in substance and remain unsure of how effective the agreement would prove to be in the long run, regarding North Korea's much-anticipated denuclearization.

If what Rodman says is true, it represents a marked turnaround from 2014, when Trump, who had yet to be elected president, described Rodman as "either drunk or on drugs (delusional)" in response to the basketball star's suggestion the two might travel to North Korea together. That said, he told Cuomo that he was not "in this for the money".

On Twitter, conservatives celebrated Trump's meeting with Kim-and Rodman's heartfelt support of it. I was the only one, I never had no one to hear me, I didn't have anyone to see me.

But, somehow, one of the biggest talking points to come out of the historical meeting is former pro basketballer Dennis Rodman crying during an interview on CNN. Rodman's agent later confirmed that his client thought he had spoken to the White House media chief.

Trump and Kim appeared to greet each other warmly as they met at the Capella Hotel in Singapore.

'I don't want people to take that in a negative way or as well as trying to feel sorry for me, ' Dennis said. I couldn't even go home, for thirty days. "A great day", he finished, referring to Monday's United States-North Korea summit. Trump said Warmbier "is someone who did not die in vain" and that what happened to Warmbier contributed to the summit taking place.

Just in case you did not know this, Dennis has formed a strong relationship with Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump. Just in case you weren't aware that PotCoin sponsored the trip, Rodman wore their t-shirt with the url prominently displayed in the interview.

'Once I went to North Korea, I didn't really understand what the whole situation was as far as being over there'.

Then called "Pak Un", masquerading as the son of an employee of the North Korean embassy, Kim is thought to have attended an English-language global school in Gümligen, near Bern.

Rodman's ties to Kim blossomed during a controversial visit to North Korea in early 2013, when he called Kim "a friend for life". "That's it, sports. I'm just so happy to be here, man".
