The U.N.’s human rights chief said Wednesday that if elected the next U.S. president, Donald Trump would be “dangerous from an international point of view.”

Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein called some of Trump’s comments about vulnerable communities and the use of torture “deeply unsettling and disturbing.”

His comments to reporters in Geneva come a month after he said that populist politicians like Trump and Dutch nationalist Geert Wilders are using fear and the promise of a world that has never existed in order to gain appeal.

Zeid said Wednesday he has no plans to tone down those kinds of statements.
