During an interview with the BBC’s Rajini Vaidyanathan, the Dalai Lama weighed in on everything from Donald Trump’s presidency to Brexit — and the Tibetan spiritual leader clearly isn’t a fan of Trump’s isolationist views.

“When he became president, he expressed, ‘America first.’ That is wrong,” the Dalai Lama told Vaidyanathan. “America, they should take the global responsibility.”

The Dalai Lama also described the U.S. president as scatterbrained, saying that his “emotions” are a “little bit too complicated.”

“One day, he says something,” the Dalai Lama said of Trump. “Another day, he says something.” And he added that Trump suffers from a “lack of moral principle.”

The Dalai Lama went on give his views on Brexit, telling the BBC that as an “outsider,” he believes that the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union was a mistake. The spiritual leader described himself as an “admirer of (the) spirit of (the European Union).”

Vaidyanathan went on to note that some Brexit supporters have quoted the Dalai Lama as saying that migrants “should return and rebuild their countries.” And the Dalai Lama clarified his position, saying, “The European countries should take these refugees and give them education and training” with the goal of giving them valuable skills if they “return to their own land.”

Vaidyanathan asked him if these migrants should be allowed to remain in Europe if they want to, and he responded, “Limited number, OK. But whole Europe, eventually become Muslim country? Impossible. Or African country, also impossible….. Keep Europe for Europeans.”

"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."

The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.

Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.

He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.

Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.

White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.

"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
