Dennis Rodman, the only man in the world who is actually friends with both the dictator running North Korea and the president of the United States hopes the two will hit it off when they meet in May, FOX News reports.
The NBA Hall of Famer, who has made various trips to North Korea since 2013, took to Twitter on Friday to express his support for the upcoming summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
“Hoping for this after my two friends and leaders meet next month. #Peace #Love #NotWar #Diplomacy,” Rodman tweeted.

Earlier in March President Trump announced plans to meet with “Lil Rocketman” to talk about the country’s nuclear program.
This week, the president said he believes that the North Koreans want to make peace.
“For years and through many administrations, everyone said that peace and the demilitarization of the Korean Peninsula was not even a small possibility,” Trump tweeted. “Now there is a good change that Kim Jong Un will do what is right for his people and for humanity. Look forward to our meeting!”
“Chinese President XI JINPING and I spoke at length about the meeting with KIM JONG UN of North Korea. President XI told me he appreciates that the U.S. is working to solve the problem diplomatically rather than going with the ominous alternative. China continues to be helpful!”

Rodman says that the tensions will go away simply by singing karaoke together…
For God’s sake, Rodman has lost his fricking mind!
Rodman said he would like to “straighten things out” between North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-Un and the United States amid nuclear tensions, Fox News reported.
Rodman, who has made trips to the isolation nation in the past, told a British television show that he has a history with Kim. He said they skied together and sang karaoke.
“For me to go over there and see (Kim) as much as I have, I basically hang out with him all the time. We laugh, we sing karaoke, we do a lot of cool things together. We ride horses, we hang out, we go skiing, we hardly ever talk politics and that’s the good thing,” Rodman said, according to Reuters.
The legendary rebounder said he was not trying to defend Kim’s provocations and was “just an ambassador for sports.”
Rodman visited North Korea in June and was seen giving President Trump’s book “The Art of the Deal” to North Korean Sports Minister Kim Il Guk. He said at the time he was “just trying to open a door” through his trip. He also made a trip to North Korea in 2014.
Rodman made his first trip to North Korea in February of 2013 for a “basketball diplomacy” trip.
The NBA star returned twice more in 2013 and again in January 2014 for a basketball game with the dictator to celebrate Kim birthday.
Thank God we have Dennis Rodman ready to save the world…
