Dennis Rodman presented a top North Korean government official with a Trump’s “the Art of the Deal” book as a gift along with a copy of “Where’s Waldo?” and several other gifts.
Dennis Rodman, the retired American basketball player, reportedly gave Kim II Guk, the North Korean Sports Minister, a copy of President Trump’s book, “The Art of the Deal.” hoping he would give it to Pres. Kim Jong Un.
The Sports Minister praised Rodman, saying: “In the past, our respected supreme leader met you several times and he used his precious time to watch the basketball match with the players you brought here.”
“In the past he met you, so our people all know you well.” he continued. “And also we feel that you are an old friend.”
Along with Trump’s book, Rodman also gave a copy of “Where’s Waldo? The Totally Essential Travel Collection.” a mermaid-themed puzzle, two autographed basketball jerseys and two soap sets.
Rodman’s North Korea Trip
On a trip to North Korea, visiting basketball players there, he said: “All of you guys should be proud of yourselves, because, you know, a lot of people don’t give you guys credit, because this is such a small country, and not many people from North Korea can compete around the world.”
“But for you guys to come back here in your country, with a medal, that says a lot about North Korea, because people don’t really take North Korea so seriously about sports or anything like that.”
The former player also visited a women’s basketball team on Wednesday, as well as Kim II Sung’s birthplace. Generally speaking, his visit to North Korea has been pretty low key up till now, which is unusual for the star.
