Trump Referred to Intelligence Analyst as 'Pretty Korean Lady'

Trump Referred to Intelligence Analyst as 'Pretty Korean Lady'

The NBC report said the analyst said her parents were Korean, leading Trump to ask an adviser why the "pretty Korean lady" was not involved in negotiations with nuclear-armed North Korea. Trump asked, according to The Hill, adding why the USA wasn't bringing more people in from countries like Norway.

According to NBC News, the incident occurred last fall when the analyst was briefing Trump about the release of a family being held in Pakistan.

The story comes just a day after he allegedly used the term "shithole" to describe Haiti, El Salvador and several countries in Africa during an immigration meeting with lawmakers on Thursday. Afterward, Trump asked her, "Where are you from", two anonymous officials told NBC News.

Trump defended himself in a tweet on Friday, claiming that he did not say "anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

It was her first time meeting the president, and when she was done briefing, he had a question for her.

Mary B's Biscuits being recalled in 23 states for listeria threat
If you're a fan of Mary B's biscuits (and who isn't?), you won't be able to find them in your frozen food aisles right now. A popular frozen food company is pulling biscuits from the shelves in almost two dozen states, including Pennsylvania.

As President Trump wades through the fallout from his reported comments that Haiti and several African states are "shithole countries", a story published Friday by NBC News claims that on two separate instances, Trump made prejudiced assumptions about White House visitors due to their ethnicity. However, Trump wasn't looking for this response.

He wanted to know where "your people" are from, according to the officials, who spoke off the record due to the nature of the internal discussions.

Trump then asked aloud why "the pretty Korean lady" wasn't working on the North Korean nuclear crisis, NBC News reported, citing "two officials with direct knowledge of the exchange".

Apparently being a woman and a "Korean" at that (even though the intelligence agent, being born in the USA, was wholly American) was enough for Trump to completely dismiss her role as an expert in hostage policy and downgrade her to just a "pretty, Korean lady".
