The White House says North Korea's government should be focused on the well-being of its citizens, not on ''celebrity sporting events'' to entertain the country's elite.
White House spokesman Jay Carney made the comments in response to a question about ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman's recent visit to North Korea. Rodman watched a basketball game with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
