The UN's human rights chief has said Donald Trump's "deeply unsettling and disturbing" views make him a danger internationally.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Raad al-Hussein cited Trump's comments on the use of torture and his attitude to "vulnerable communities".

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Raad al-Hussein who is a Muslim himself, had earlier in June said that "bigotry is not proof of strong leadership", while Trump says that tolerating Terrorists is not his policy.
