To all Americans and the rest of the world I’m honored to call @realdonaldtrump a friend. He’s one of the best negotiators of all time and I’m looking forward to him adding to his historic success at the Singapore Summit. #Peace #Love #MakeAmericaGreatAgain #MakeTheWorldGreatAgain #basketballdiplomacy
