Even the Dalai Lama is cool with a Trump presidency! Through his sparse and carefully chosen words, he passed some wisdom and reason on to those who may be nervous about Trump.
And as the “leader of the free world” he says “global realities” are in good hands.
Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama said Wednesday he has “no worries” about Donald Trump’s election as U.S. president, adding that he expects the businessman will align his future policies with global realities…
The 81-year-old monk said he has always regarded the U.S. as the leader of the “free world” and wasn’t concerned about remarks made by Trump during the election campaign. Some of those comments have been cited as offensive to Muslims, Hispanics and other U.S. minority groups.
“I feel during the election, the candidate has more freedom to express. Now once they (are) elected, having the responsibility, then they have to carry their cooperation, their work, according (to) reality,” he told reporters. “So I have no worries.”

Probably a disappointing response for lefties around the world, who see the Dalai Lama as a global and spiritual leader. Oh well, can’t win them all.
