President Trump, who has accepted North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's invite to meet, sent out a flurry of tweets in 2014 calling former NBA star and friend of Kim, Dennis Rodman, crazy for saying Trump would ever be willing to go to North Korea.
"Crazy Dennis Rodman is saying I wanted to go to North Korea with him. Never discussed, no interest, last place on Earth I want to go to," Trump tweeted.

A South Korea official announced Thursday evening outside the West Wing that Pyongyang has extended an invitation to President Trump to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. President Trump appreciated the briefing and said he would meet Kim Jong Un by May to achieve permanent denuclearization," South Korean national security adviser Chung Eui-Yong told reporters.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said afterwards that the the time and place of the meeting have yet to be determined.
Trump also tweeted in 2014 that Rodman was either "drunk or on drugs" when he said he wanted to go to North Korea.
"Glad I fired him on 'Apprentice,'" Trump said of Rodman, who was a contestant on Trump's reality TV show.

In 2014, Rodman told Business Insider that Donald Trump wanted to go with him to North Korea.
"Donald Trump wanted to go," Rodman said. "He wanted to give me his plane to go over there."
Rodman has made multiple trips to North Korea over the years and last summer handed Kim a copy of Trump's 1987 book, The Art of the Deal.
Rodman has yet to comment on the news of the planned meeting between Trump and Kim.
Trump is right its is the last place he may want to go but he is no wuss he will go for the good of our country and allies
Humorous, but, of course Trump won’t go to NK.
DMZ, Seoul, Hawaii, Beijing?
How about we give them Rodman permanently in exchange for true and verifiable de-nuclearization?
I call that a win/win !!
“Art of the Deal”
I don’t understand the point of this article. Trump is not going to Pyongyang, certainly not with Rodman.
Sounds good. :D
Moscow to piss off the lefties
My money is on an out-of-the-way third party place like Linjiang, but I'm not putting much money down :-)
He should ask Melania to oversee the Whitehouse while he’s gone. Does anyone trust little rocket boy not to pull a fast one?
That was the choice I left out!
The Washington Examiner is pretty useless newspaper. Maybe not bird cage liner but not worth much more.
Kimmie may defect So my money is on Hawaii to the compound where marcos went
Will it be at the DMV? Where, exactly?
People shouldn't be surprised. North Korea has a history or rattling it's sword, then using that to make deals that benefit them.
It was a good call.
Im guessing China or Russia. Should be interesting to see if he gets overthrown while hes away.
China is going to want a lot for this (if it’s substantive) and giving them the prestige of hosting it costs us nothing.
Should be the DMZ, of course, not sure that’s secure though.
There are rumors that President Trump has already secretly met with Kim Jong Un during his visit to the Forbidden City.
China is a mixed bag, he could probably get a lot of help from China if he scheduled the meeting there but on the other hand, we are trying to diminish China’s influence.
