Barack Obama’s policies did considerable harm to the country.
Donald Trump is slowly unraveling some of the damage done, and Obama can’t stand it.
Now one basketball legend who praised Trump had harsh words for Obama and highlighted one of his biggest failures.
Dennis Rodman has always been an outspoken figure who dove headfirst into controversy.The NBA bad boy who first rose to prominence on the “Bad Boy” Detroit Pistons forged a reputation as a relentless rebounder and competitor on the floor, and a notorious wild man off it.
Rodman’s prolific rebounding and stalwart defense landed him in the Basketball Hall of Fame, but now he’s become known for something entirely different.
As part of a cultural outreach basketball initiative in North Korea, Rodman started a peculiar friendship with the despotic supreme leader Kim Jong Un.
Rodman believed North Korea would be willing to modernize and denuclearize, but he was howling in the wind.
Rodman took his diplomatic suggestions to Barack Obama, but he was completely ignored.
Rodman said of Obama, “He didn’t even give me the time of day. I asked him, I said, ‘I have something to say from North Korea.’ He just brushed me off.”
Strangely enough, Obama was perfectly willing to give the whole store to the Iranian Mullahs in the fraudulent Iran nuclear deal, but he wouldn’t consider any type of negotiation with a greater nuclear threat in North Korea.
Obama gave the Iranians $150 billion, released Iranian terrorists as a form of quid pro quo and downplayed their criminality, and even tried to funnel them extra cash through the banking system.
All of those concessions were made in exchange for Iran pausing—not dismantling—their nuclear program for 10 years.
Israeli Mossad agents discovered proof Iran was cheating on the deal, as many suspected they would.
Coincidentally, Iran pulled the same stunt North Korea did in 1994. Then-supreme leader Kim Jong-Il promised Bill Clinton he would denuclearize in exchange for an easing of sanctions.
North Korea took the cash and continued to build their program.
After the freeze-out by Obama, Rodman turned to Donald Trump in hopes of finding some type of nuclear detente. Rodman gave Kim Jong Un a copy of Trump’s book “The Art of the Deal,” and helped facilitate a meeting between the two.
As a result, Trump and Kim have entered into a tentative agreement that could lead to total denuclearization, and perhaps more.
Rodman received a call from Sarah Huckabee Sanders, showing the administration’s appreciation for his efforts. Rodman couldn’t believe the stark difference in treatment between the two presidents.
Trump further chided Obama by pointing out that he was able to get American hostages released from North Korea without having to give away billions in cash.
Obama’s arrogance prevented him from talking to people with outside-the-box solutions. Conversely, Trump is a businessman who’s willing to listen to good ideas, wherever they come from.
Time will tell how effective the North Korea Summit was, but the early returns are a positive step in the right direction.
The left mocked Trump and labeled him dangerous for deriding Kim as “Little Rocket Man,” but Trump understood that tough rhetoric is what brings dictators to the table.
Obama preferred to genuflect and give them pallets of cash.
