Trump Referred to Intelligence Analyst as 'Pretty Korean Lady'

This was the alert which was issued among residents in Hawaii on Saturday morning which caused panic. Civil Defense later told residents it was a mistake and that someone'pushed the wrong buttons during a drill

Amid ongoing national and worldwide condemnation for his remarks about "shithole" African nations, Donald Trump has come under fire yet again after details emerged about an intelligence briefing in which he asked why a "pretty Korean lady" wasn't working on negotiations with North Korea.

In yet another example of how President Donald Trump's racist views cloud his judgment, NBC News reports Friday afternoon that last fall in the Oval Office the president received an intelligence briefing on the status of the impending release of a family held in Pakistan.

According to NBC News, Trump first asked the officer where she was from after she had finished delivering an intelligence briefing.

She said NY and, when pressed, added Manhattan.

The president likely did not mean harm with his question to the Korean-American intelligence briefer, but it brought concerns that he lacks cultural sensitivity, the officials told NBC News.


Trump then asked an adviser in the room why the "pretty Korean lady" wasn't negotiating with North Korea, suggesting that her ethnicity should guide her career path.

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.

Not everyone who was in the meeting has confirmed that Trump said the remarks., R-Ark., and David Perdue, R-Ga. said in a joint statement they "do not recall" Trump saying that. would not confirm the remarks either, but noted that he spoke up during the meeting when Trump said whatever he said. Referring to the president's hometown, she offered that she, too, was from Manhattan. The president asked her where "your people" were from, according to the officials, leading the analyst to disclose that her parents are Korean.

In a tweet, Trump said: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

Prior to these comments, Trump had been already accused of being a racist.
