Sporting a MAGA hat and wearing a t-shirt promoting his sponsor, "PotCoin", Rodman-former National Basketball Association star, Madonna paramour, and "Celebrity Apprentice contestant, remember-has somehow managed to insert himself squarely in the middle of this week's historic meetings between President Trump and N. Korean leader Kim Jong-un".
Moon Seong Mook, a former South Korean military official, said Trump's comments on the drills confirmed what many in South Korea had feared all along - that North Korea would attempt to drive a wedge between Washington and Seoul and gain substantial concessions from an unconventional USA president who thinks much less of the traditional alliance than his predecessors.
When relations between the US and the DPRK thawed slightly between 1990 and 2005, a repatriation agreement allowed 229 sets of remains to come home to American families.
United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified. War games, he said, is "not a term the military uses", and it's unclear whether the president was describing large military exercises or broader interactions with the South Koreans. And, of course, Potcoin might hope to see a similar surge in their token price as they did last time they worked with Rodman in relation to North Korea. So let's make this happen.
Having just been on the receiving end of the Trump administration's most significant hammer-blow to diplomacy-namely, its decision to ditch a six-nation nuclear accord that was negotiated over a period of several years-Iran is perhaps better-positioned than any other nation to assess Trump's reliability as a negotiating partner and "dealmaker".
If we ever needed visual confirmation of just how freakish world diplomacy is in 2018, we now have it: in the spritely form of Dennis Rodman arriving in Singapore for the Trump-Kim summit in a marijuana cryptocurrency T-shirt. I don't understand why people suddenly feel positive toward Kim following his media exposure via the two Koreas' summit.
And he accused former US President Barack Obama of "not giving me the time of day".
A meeting between the leaders of both South Korea and North Korea in April also boosted optimism and intrigue in the city. He just brushed me off. "But that didn't deter me". "Sometimes I felt foolish doing it". CNN's "Chris Cuomo Primetime" was a close third with 2.362 million viewers. "I got so many death threats". I expect he has experts that know about the issues to give him good advice and I hope the president kind goes into it slowly. "He's very happy to carry out the things I've been saying". "But I kept my head up".
Speaking about the military exercises, Corker told Reuters: "I don't know if that's an agreement or an ad hoc statement that was made". Rodman didn't explain the conditions in detail, only mentioning that moving "ships" back from South Korea was part of them. 'I took all those bullets.
