President Donald Trump announced today that he will be appointing Basketball player Dennis Rodman to be the U.S. Ambassador to North Korea.
Relations between the two countries have been very cold for years, with rhetoric on both sides being heightened lately, Trump took the opportunity to promote the once star player and no stranger to Pyongyang to help ease tensions.
Rodman has actually been to the communist countries several times as a guest of the North Korean leader who is a huge fan of basketball.
It is not as surprising for Trump to choose Rodman as one might think. Trump has become known for promoting his supporters, and Rodman endorsed Trump's candidacy in 2015.
