Washington - The Dalai Lama accused President Donald Trump of having a "lack of moral principle" during a television interview that aired Thursday in which the Tibetan spiritual leader also voiced renewed concerns about Trump's "America first" policies.
Speaking to the BBC, the Dalai Lama described Trump's emotions as a "little bit too complicated."
"One day he says something, another day he says something, but I think lack of moral principle," said the 83-year-old Buddhist monk, who is known for his advocacy of nonviolence, peaceful coexistence and human rights.
The Dalai Lama also renewed his objections to Trump's use of the term "America First" to describe his global policies.
"When he become president, he expressed, 'America first.' That is wrong," the Dalai Lama said. "America, they should take the global responsibility."
