That's at least according to his buddy Dennis Rodman, who defended the 33-year-old dictator during an appearance on ITV's "Good Morning Britain".
I can't wait to tell my grandkids about how Dennis Rodman saved the world.
However, Rodman feels if Trump makes the first move, positive results could come of it.
"If they could sit down and have some kind of mutual conversation and try and start some dialogue, that could open the door just a little bit".
Now, with the situation ultra tense between President Trump and Jong-un, Rodman is offering to "straigthen things out" and thaw the icy relationship between the United States and North Korea.
Rodman says he's confused by America's shifting relationship with Russian Federation, another communist state, "but for some reason we have a big issue with North Korea".
Rodman said he was not trying to defend Kim and that he was just a "sports ambassador".
Still, his end goal is clear. Rodman has visited Kim on several occasions, calling him a "friend for life". The basketball Hall of Famer, also known as "The Worm", told host Piers Morgan that his trips to Pyongyang included "cool things" like karaoke, skiing, horseback riding and laughing.
During his June trip to North Korea, Rodman delivered a copy of Trump's book, "The Art of the Deal", to Kim.
"We hardly ever talk politics and that's the good thing about that", he added.
"I don't love him", Rodman said.
Rodman insisted, repeatedly throughout the interview, that he wasn't an apologist for North Korea. I've always said that. "You just hear what you think he's saying".
As tensions between the United States and North Korea ratchet higher and higher, who could become the voice of reason?
