Rodman flying to Singapore

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former National Basketball Association star Dennis Rodman said on Friday he will be heading to Singapore for the planned June 12 summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

“I will be flying to Singapore for the historical Summit. I’ll give whatever support is needed to my friends, @realDonaldTrump and Marshall Kim Jong Un,” Rodman said in a Twitter post.

There was no indication Rodman would be involved in any official talks at Tuesday’s summit in Singapore. However, Trump, before leaving to attend the Group of Seven summit in Canada, was asked whether Rodman was invited to Singapore and he said, “No, he wasn’t.”
