Rodman to return to North Korea to vacation with Kim Jong Un

Posted: Updated:

FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- Former professional basketball star Dennis Rodman says he plans to return to North Korea to vacation with Kim Jong Un.
 
   Rodman met with the authoritarian leader in late February during a visit that was not endorsed by the U.S. State Department. The visit came during a period of tension between the countries over North Korea's nuclear weapons testing.
 
   Rodman traveled to Fargo, N.D., over the weekend for a promotional appearance at a local bar. The former Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls star told KVLY-KXJB that he doesn't think Kim wants war and that he considers the leader a friend even though he doesn't condone what he does.
 
   Rodman said he plans to return to North Korea in August to vacation with Kim, who is a diehard basketball fan.
