It's been described as the biggest diplomatic breakthrough of the 21st century, but to former basketball star Dennis Rodman, Tuesday's meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Trump was a handsome moment between two good friends.

Speaking from Singapore and wearing a Make America Great Again cap, Rodman told CNN that a White House staffer called him to tell him the president was proud of him.

Rodman said he was "brushed off" when he tried to approach former US President Barack Obama about relations with North Korea.

Rodman, who Trump said last week had not been invited to the summit, has been public about several trips he's made to North Korea to meet with Kim. I want to see us get along. And today is a great day for everybody. "And I think that people see now that I do care what's really going on and that's why I'm over here".

Rodman said: "It's a great day".

Rodman most recently traveled to North Korea a year ago as a private citizen.

The basketball player is in Singapore for the summit, but the White House had said he will play no official role.

"I'm out of it". I got so many death threats while I was protecting everything.

"Otto did not die in vain", Trump said Tuesday, crediting Warmbier with helping lead to his meeting with Kim.

His advice to Mr Trump was for him to go into the one-on-one meeting with his "heart on the table".

"Dennis Rodman was either drunk or on drugs (delusional) when he said I wanted to go to North Korea with him". But I kept my head up high. I had no one to hear me, no one to see me, but I knew it. "When I came home, I had to hide out for 30 days.I knew things were going to change".

Rodman defended the talks between himself and Kim and also those between Trump and Kim as "the right thing to do".

Rodman has faced ridicule and criticism for his trips to North Korea, which some US politicians and activists view as serving only as fodder for North Korean propaganda.

"We need the doors to be open and start fresh and make this world a better place, baby, that's it", he said.

Watch the full, wild interview, in two parts below, in which Rodman describes Kim as "a big kid" who "loves to have a good time". "He wants to come to America and enjoy his life".

While Rodman won't be part of the official summit, his presence on the sidelines looks to cap off a freaky personal success story of sorts.
