Meeting with the analyst as part of a briefing on a family being released by militants in Pakistan, [Trump asked] her where she was from.
“New York,” she replied.
Trump pressed on, asking her where “her people” are from.
When the analyst responded that her parents were from South Korea, the president reportedly responded by asking a nearby adviser why the “pretty Korean lady” was not negotiating with North Korea’s government on behalf of the Trump administration.
The analyst, whose name was not released, is reportedly trained in hostage negotiation, not diplomacy.
