Former NBA star and Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman arrived in Singapore, hours before President Donald Trump was set to convene with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

 

Around midnight Monday, news organizations descended upon Rodman as he emerged from the baggage claim area at Changi Airport  He told reporters he's uncertain he'd meet with Kim in Singapore.

 

Ahead of the trip, Rodman stated he would "give whatever support is needed'' to Trump and Kim.

Ill give whatever support is needed to my friends, @realDonald Trump and Marshall [sic] Kim Jong Un.

According to ESPN, White House officials have said the former Pistons and Bulls star would play no official role in the diplomatic negotiations - in fact, Trump said that Rodman wasn't invited.

 

He's one of the rare westerners who's met with the North Korean leader in Pyongyang.

 

There's a financial stake for Rodman, however, as his trip is being sponsored by PotCoin, a digital currency used in the legal cannabis business. He was seen with the brand's shirt in the airport.
