North Korea expecting visit from former NBAer Dennis Rodman
BEIJING - North Korea is expecting another visit by former NBA bad boy Dennis Rodman.
He's made several visits to the country, but has been roughly criticized for insensitive comments and for regaling leader Kim Jong Un with 'Happy Birthday" in 2014. On the same trip, he suggested an American missionary was at fault for his own imprisonment in North Korea, remarks for which he later apologized.
A foreign ministry official who spoke to the AP in Pyongyang confirmed Rodman was expected to arrive Tuesday but could not provide details. He spoke on condition of anonymity because the ministry had not issued a formal statement.
It would be Rodman's first visit to the country since President Donald Trump took office.
