The White House on Thursday ruled out any role for US former basketball star Dennis Rodman in next week's scheduled summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump.Rodman, a former Chicago Bulls star, has made five trips to Pyongyang since Kim took power and established friendly, if unusual, relations with the North Korean leader, whom he once called his "friend for life". Rodman first visited North Korea in 2013 with members of the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team, and in 2014 put together a team of North Korean basketball players for an exhibition match marking Kim's birthday.
