Once the briefing had concluded, President Trump asked the person who briefed him, a career intelligence analyst who also is an expert in hostage policy, a question.

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.

Trump persisted and asked the question again, with the staffer repeating that she, like Trump himself, was also from Manhattan in NY.

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

President Donald Trump suggested in the Oval Office that a "pretty Korean" analyst's ethnicity should qualify her for negotiating with North Korea on behalf of the United States, NBC News reported Friday.

The career intelligence analyst ultimately told the president her parents were from Korea. The White House did not immediately comment.

Trump has always been accused by his political rivals of promoting racist attitudes that fueled clashes at some of his campaign rallies in 2016 and emboldened white supremacist groups that viewed Trump's general election win as an opportunity for empowerment.

But the global community condemned the comments, which were corroborated by congressmen who had been in the room when Trump made the controversial remarks. "Never said 'take them out'".

Trump began his presidential campaign by calling Mexican immigrants criminals and "rapists". Haiti's ambassador to the U.S. said he and his government "vehemently condemn [ed]" the remark.
