'Pretty Korean Lady': Trump Broke Decorum Before Latest Slur

'Pretty Korean Lady': Trump Broke Decorum Before Latest Slur

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?".

When the analyst responded that she was Korean, the president reportedly responded by asking a nearby adviser why the "pretty Korean lady" was not negotiating with North Korea's government on behalf of the Trump administration.

Citing two officials with direct knowledge of the exchange, NBC said the president asked the analyst where she was from, to which she said New York City.

Amid the backlash to President Donald Trump reportedly referring to countries in Africa and Central America as "shithole countries", NBC News reports that the president made remarks about the race and ethnicity of at least one USA official.

According to NBC, the officials who discussed the "pretty Korean lady" remark "said the president likely meant no harm with his inquiry, but it raised concern of a lack of cultural sensitivity and decorum". Trump asked, according to multiple people briefed on the meeting, before going on to question why the USA wasn't admitting more immigrants from countries like Norway instead.

During a meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers on immigration Thursday, Trump criticized protections the United States gives to immigrants from various underdeveloped countries, including Haiti, El Salvador, and some African countries.

Trump on Friday said he used "tough" language but that he "never said anything derogatory" about Haitians. The senior Democratic senator Dick Durbin, who was in the meeting, subsequently said that he had.

Officials from African countries were taken aback by the report. Paul Altidor, Haiti's Ambassador to the USA, told an NBC News contributor that he and the Haitian government "vehemently condemn" Trump's statement. Botswana's Ministry of International Affairs said the comments were "highly irresponsible, reprehensible, and racist".

"Either the president has been misinformed or he is miseducated", Altidor said, adding that Haiti's government also formally summoned a U.S. official to explain the comments.
