Rodman said he’ll give whatever support the leaders need. His tweet included a photo composite of Rodman, Trump and Kim in front of the flags of both nations and the word “unite.”

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told Fox News on Thursday that Rodman is “great on the court but negotiations should best be left to those who are good at it.”
