The Dalai Lama has come out as a critic of Trump and accused the present of having a 'lack of moral principle.'

The Tibetan spiritual leader is not a fan of the president' policies and did not hold back in an interview with the BBC.

"When he became president, he expressed, 'America first.' That is wrong," the Dalai Lama the news outlet. "America, they should take the global responsibility."

He continued:

"His emotions [are] also a little bit," and touched his temple. "One day he says something, another day he says something. But I think [there is a] lack of moral principle. When he became president, he expressed America first. That is wrong. America, they should take the global responsibility."

We're sure when Trump hears about the Dalai Lama's criticism, he will deliver a rebuttal via his trusty Instagram account.

During the same interview, the Dalai Lama also said that while he was a supporter of the EU and thought it would be better for the UK to remain part of it, he did not want to see Europe become "Muslim" or "African."

"I am [an] outsider, but I feel better [to] remain in the European Union," he said. "The goal should be that migrants return and help rebuild their countries. You have to be practical. It's impossible for everyone to come," he said.

The Brexit campaign has been ongoing for quite some time and the UK, which has been built off the back off immigration, has still not come to a solution one way or the other.
