#DennisRodman / #KimJongUn / #NorthKorea

Dennis Rodman to meet his ‘old friend’ Kim Jong Un – Rodman has met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on previous trips to Pyongyang and has called him “an awesome kid”.

His visit comes as tensions have heightened on the Korean peninsula over Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile tests and its vow to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the US mainland.

Four Americans are also being held in North Korea, including 22-year-old student Otto Warmbier, who has been sentenced to 15 years’ hard labour for attempting to steal a propaganda banner.

Dennis Rodman is on his way to North Korea. Was he sent by Trump? – The Washington Post – Rodman’s trip has sparked speculation that he may be traveling to free some or all of the four American citizens being held by North Korea, perhaps as a first and important step toward lessening tensions between Washington and Pyongyang.

Trump, who had the basketballer on his “Celebrity Apprentice” show twice, has recently called Kim a “smart cookie” and has said he would be “honored” to meet him.
