Rodman, the former NBA star, has formed a friendship with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, a major basketball fan, that dates back to 2013 when "The Worm" went to the hermit nation as part of a basketball exhibition. "We hardly ever talk politics".

"I don't love him", Rodman said.

Rodman is believed to have visited North Korea at least five times.

"I basically hang out with (Kim) all the time".

"We laugh we sing karaoke, we do a lot of cool things together".

Rodman concluded the conversation by saying, "I don't love him [Kim]..."

Rodman, who added that his trips to North Korea have included lots of laughing, karaoke, skiing, and horseback riding, suggested that Trump and Kim might find unexpected common ground if they spoke.

He was officially announced as the director of Episode IX in August of 2015 and has also been co-writing the script. " Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways ", a statement posted on Star Wars .com said.

North Korea claimed last weekend to have developed its most powerful nuclear weapon yet: A hydrogen bomb that could reach the US.

However, it is unlikely that Trump will take Rodman's advice, having already said that "talking is not the answer" with North Korea.

"If they could sit down and have some kind of mutual conversation and try and start some dialogue, that could open the door just a little bit".

Rodman, known as "The Worm" during his National Basketball Association career due to his sometimes disturbing appearance, continues to express his admiration for President Donald Trump-for whom he "worked" on the hit television program "The Apprentice".

Rodman insisted, repeatedly throughout the interview, that he wasn't an apologist for North Korea.

"I don't think anyone in the administration should be under any illusions about this", Jonathan Pollack, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, explained at a recent conference on North Korea.

Rodman stated he's taken many people with him on his visits to North Korea, including basketball players from the US, asserting, "You should have seen the American players".
