Trump asked why 'pretty Korean lady' analyst wasn't negotiating with North Korea

The Korean American woman, who visited the White House last fall to brief Trump on a family being released by militants in Pakistan, was asked where "your people" were from by the president after grilling her on her ethnicity, according to NBC News.

Putin's unusually warm words for the secretive leader came after North and South Korean officials held their first direct talks in more than two years on Tuesday, as diplomatic efforts continue to try to defuse tensions over Kim's nuclear program. "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.

North Korean officials are taking the possibility of conflict with the US seriously, but the first strike won't come from them, a Russian expert who recently visited Pyongyang wrote on 38 North, a North Korea-monitoring website based in the U.S.

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 off the record due to the nature of the internal discussions.


"The North Koreans see growing signs, reflecting President Donald Trump's "America First" principle, that the United States is prepared to accept the awful loss of lives that would result from a large-scale military conflict with North Korea".

The analyst, whose name has been withheld and is an expert in hostage policy, replied that she was originally from New York City.

Carson, the only black member of Trump's Cabinet, had never served in Congress and spent his career as a surgeon.

During that same meeting, a member relayed to Trump that potential welfare cuts would harm her constituents, "not all of whom are black".
