Former NBA superstar Dennis Rodman arrived in Singapore on Monday ahead of the historic summit between U.S. President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
Dennis Rodman is under fire for making his fourth trip to North Korea to visit with dictator Kim Jung Un. A petition has been launched to remove the 56-year-old retired NBA star from the Basketball Hall of Fame following his most recent visit to North Korea.
The federal government is going after former NBA great Dennis Rodman for violating U.S. sanctions on luxury imports into North Korea, the Daily Beast reports.
The U.S. Treasury Department is investigating Rodman to see if the thousands of dollars in birthday gifts he gave to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un violated a law prohibiting the importing of luxury goods into North Korea. The law, signed in 2010 by President Obama, requires a license to transport luxury goods into North Korea. Rodman did not apply for such a license.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un renewed his threats to launch a "pre-emptive nuclear attack" on American soil. Such an attack would result in the catastrophic loss of life along the West coast. The radiation poisoning from the nuclear fallout would linger in the air for hundreds of miles for many years.
