While the White House attempts to mitigate the intense backlash over President Donald Trump's racist remarks referring to Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations as "shithole" countries, NBC has a new report detailing a disturbing-yet wholly unsurprising-exchange that occurred between Trump and a Korean American intelligence officer last fall.

President Donald Trump referred to an intelligence analyst as a "pretty Korean lady" and asked why she wasn't talking with the North Koreans to help curb their nuclear weapons program.

The analyst, whose name was not released, is reportedly trained in hostage negotiation, not diplomacy. "Despite her response of "Manhattan", the president apparently kept digging and inquired about the origins of "[her] people" until she told mentioned that her parents were from Korea.

Trump pressed on, asking her where "your people" are from.

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.

In the wake of President Trump's comment about wanting to stop immigration from "shithole countries", NBC News did a deep dive into Trump's history of racist comments. The senior Democratic senator Dick Durbin, who was in the meeting, subsequently said that he had.

It was her first time meeting the president, and when she was done briefing, he had a question for her. But NBC cited two officials with knowledge of what took place who said Trump was really asking the woman where "your people" are from.

The president reportedly expressed surprise that no CBC members knew Ben Carson, the housing and urban development secretary who is the only black member of his cabinet.
