The conversation took place in the Oval Office last fall when a career intelligence analyst specializing in hostage policy talked to the commander-in-chief the about the looming release of a family that had been held in Pakistan.
After the analyst revealed that her parents are Korean, Trump turned to an adviser in the room and seemed to suggest her ethnicity should determine her career path, asking why the "pretty Korean lady" isn't negotiating with North Korea on his administration's behalf, the officials said.
In fact, sources tell NBC News that Trump made a career us intelligence officer uncomfortable previous year when he grilled her on her Korean heritage and demanded to know why she wasn't being used to negotiate with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Trump defended himself in a tweet on Friday, claiming that he did not say "anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". The White House did not immediately comment. The senior Democratic senator Dick Durbin, who was in the meeting, subsequently said that he had. Afterward, Trump asked her, "Where are you from", two anonymous officials told NBC News.
