Dennis Rodman will be in town when Donald Trump, Kim Jong Un meet: report

The highly anticipated meeting between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is just a week away and there could be another familiar face in town -- former NBA star Dennis Rodman.

According to the New York Post he will be in Singapore when the meeting is expected to take place. Rodman is reportedly close with Kim. He’s visited North Korea several times. The post reports Rodman could even taken part in negotiations. 

In April Rodman told TMZ he didn’t take all the credit for Trump and Kim moving toward a meeting, but he did say he gave the North Korean dictator Trump’s book.

Rodman added the two are pretty much the same.
