President Trump reportedly asked a career intelligence analyst where her “people” were from before calling her a “pretty Korean lady” during an Oval Office meeting last fall.
According to two officials familiar with the meeting, Trump asked her where she was from when the meeting was over.
The analyst told the president she was from Manhattan, like him, but he wanted to know where “your people” are from.
Once she told Trump that her parents are Korean, he turned to another adviser in the room and asked why the “pretty Korean lady” isn’t helping the administration on negotiating with North Korea.
This comes after Trump reportedly referred to El Salvador, Haiti, and African nations as “shithole countries” which raised eyebrows and led to accusations of racism.
