Amid ongoing national and worldwide condemnation for his remarks about "shithole" African nations, Donald Trump has come under fire yet again after details emerged about an intelligence briefing in which he asked why a "pretty Korean lady" wasn't working on negotiations with North Korea.

"Trump, who was meeting with the analyst as part of a briefing on a family being released by militants in Pakistan, waited until the briefing was over before questioning her where she was from".

News revealed that the president repeatedly asked about where a staffer was from while she was providing information to him inside the Oval Office.

But after admitting that both of her parents were from Korea, Trump reportedly asked an adviser why the "pretty Korean lady" was not negotiating with North Korea's government on behalf of the United States.

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

Trump, it has often been reported, likes to match people to jobs he thinks they look qualified for.

The exchange was detailed to NBC News after Trump's "shithole" remark on Thursday drew backlash and claims that he is racist. The network did not receive comments from the briefer or the White House. The senior Democratic senator Dick Durbin, who was in the meeting, subsequently said that he had.

The NBC report listed other instances of the president speaking with an apparent lack of sensitivity in formal surroundings, in meetings with members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) and with Navajo code talkers.

Officials told NBC that Trump wanted to know where "your people" are from.

The president reportedly expressed surprise that no CBC members knew Ben Carson, the housing and urban development secretary who is the only black member of his cabinet.
