"I just want to try to straighten things out for everyone to get along together," Rodman said Wednesday on Good Morning Britain, via Adam K. Raymond of New York magazine.
Rodman has made several visits to North Korea and its leader Kim Jong-un.
While Rodman's unusual friendship with Kim began when he first visited the country in 2013 as part of a basketball exhibition, he explained that politics do not come up.
"We laugh, we sing karaoke, we do a lot of cool things together," Rodman said on Good Morning Britain of his relationship with Kim, via Reuters. "We ride horses, we hang out, we go skiing, we hardly ever talk politics, and that's the good thing."
As the political climate worsens, however, he clearly wants to get involved. Rodman, who played for five teams and won five NBA titles in his Hall of Fame career, might be the most noteworthy link between the two countries' leaders.
