While the White House attempts to mitigate the intense backlash over President Donald Trump's racist remarks referring to Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations as "shithole" countries, NBC has a new report detailing a disturbing-yet wholly unsurprising-exchange that occurred between Trump and a Korean American intelligence officer last fall.

Amid a global furore over his reported remarks about "shithole countries" and immigration, Donald Trump faced further controversy on Friday when it was reported that he referred to an intelligence analyst presenting information to him in the Oval Office as a "pretty Korean lady" and suggested she should be part of negotiations with North Korea. The president continued to inquire, asking the officer where "your people" were from, according to two officials with direct knowledge of the incident. It's just another day in the Trump White House. The senior Democratic senator Dick Durbin, who was in the meeting, subsequently said that he had. Paul Altidor, Haiti's Ambassador to the United States, 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". His reported remarks took place in the context of a debate over the merits of those programs. In a statement, El Salvador's government said it "categorically rejects that type of statement".
