Dennis Rodman endorses Donald Trump for president

On Friday, the five-time NBA champion tweeted that the Donald “has been a great friend for many years.”

“We don’t need another politician, we need a businessman like Mr. Trump! Trump 2016,” he added.
Trump responded on Twitter, writing, “Thank you @DennisRodman. It’s time to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain! I hope you are doing well!”


He announced his support of Trump only an hour after defending World Wrestling Entertainment legend Hulk Hogan in separate tweets. Hogan was released from the WWE after audio of him using racial slurs reportedly surfaced.

“I’ve known @HulkHogan for 25 years,” Rodman, who has previously appeared in the WWE, tweeted. “There isn’t a racist bone in that mans [sic] body.”

The former NBA All-Star has previously drawn controversy for traveling to North Korea and playing in a basketball game for the country’s dictator, Kim Jong-un.

Rodman defended the trip by calling the North Korean leader a “friend.”
After the North Korea visit, Trump praised Rodman for going to the Pyongyang and agreed with the basketball player that President Obama should call Kim Jong-un.

Later, Trump tweeted that Rodman “is saying I wanted to go to North Korea with him.”
“Never discussed, no interest, last place on Earth I want to go,” Trump added.

He also wrote, “Dennis Rodman was either drunk or on drugs (delusional) when he said I wanted to go to North Korea with him. Glad I fired him on Apprentice!”.
