USA: Rodman talks Trump, North Korea at Politicon in LA

Dennis Rodman, former basketball player (English): «I've always told people that me and Trump were friends. We don't talk about politics, we don't talk about anything, but about life. Pretty much about life. But I leave that to him and his government, and these people in the White House.» Toure, journalist (English): «Do you support him? Dennis Rodman, former basketball player (English): «I... Еще could say, friendship — yes. Toure, journalist (English): «As a politician? Dennis Rodman, former basketball player (English): «Friendship — yes. I'm not really deep into politics, but I like to create politics. Toure, journalist (English): «What does that mean?» Dennis Rodman, former basketball player (English): «Huh?» Toure, journalist (English): «What do you mean 'create politics'?» Dennis Rodman, former basketball player (English): «You know, like the North Korean thing. I created that. I created that.» Dennis Rodman, former basketball player (English): «Yeah.» Toure, journalist (English): «When was the last time you talked to him?» Dennis Rodman, former basketball player (English): «I talked to his party a couple of weeks ago. They still want me to come back over there, you know, because the last trip I was there in North Korea was like a year ago, last May. And the people gave me such a heartache for doing that.» Dennis Rodman, former basketball player (English): «Eight times. Toure, journalist (English): «Eight times? You know Kim Jong Un, you've seen the country; we've never been there.

Dennis Rodman, former basketball player (English): «I didn't even know that.» Toure, journalist (English): «So you though it was just, 'oh let's go to Burma, let's go to North Korea... aaay, whatever!'? Dennis Rodman, former basketball player (English): «That's right. That was it.» Toure, journalist (English): «Okay.» Toure, journalist (English): «Right.» Dennis Rodman, former basketball player (English): «Do you get that?» Toure, journalist (English): «Right.» Dennis Rodman, former basketball player (English): «I say, I'm there for sports; try to connect two countries together.
