Franklin Graham: President Obama should listen to Dennis Rodman and call Kim

Brooke Baldwin talks to Reverend Franklin Graham, the president and CEO of Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Organization about his call for the U.S. to take Kim Jong Un seriously.

Reverend Graham has visited North Korea four times - most recently in 2011 when he met with some of the country's top officials.

His family's relationship with North Korea spans decades. His mother Ruth attended high school in the 1930's in what is now North Korea. 

His father - the reverend Billy Graham - became the first foreign religious leader to preach in Pyongyang in 1992. Billy graham also met with North Korea's leader at that time, President Kim Il Sung - the current leader's grandfather.
