Will it be 'Hello Dalai' for Trump?

Although the current Dalai Lama has no hesitation about calling upon President-elect Trump, it remains to be seen whether Trump will feel as warm and fuzzy.

After all, the Dalai Lama has hinted about “some problems” to discuss.  Could these involve support for an independent Tibet? 
If so, will their steaming tea talk be served on not-so-fine China?  If not, what might these two seemingly disparate individuals find to chat about?

As for Trump’s history of misogyny, xenophobia and Islamophobia, all is forgiven.  That was then, and this is now.  The Dalai Lama has declared:  I feel during the election, the candidate has more freedom to express.  Now… they have to carry their cooperation…

Hopefully, lugging around newfound cooperation (while stifling a mouthful of vicious comments), won’t be too heavy a burden for soon-to-be President Trump.
