Televangelist Pat Robertson says Biden won, won't be president long, urges 'erratic' Trump to retire
Televangelist Pat Robertson admitted Monday at the 700 Club that President-elect Joe Biden won. He predicted "we won't see President Kamala Harris too long after President Biden's inauguration," and said it was time for President Trump to admit and step back from politics. Robertson, a leading voice on the religious right since the 1980s, has generally - though not always - supported Trump, along with most other prominent evangelical Christian leaders.
Trump is trying harder to stay in office, but he's losing allies quickly.
After admitting that Biden would take office and predicting that he will die soon or step down, Robertson said "it would be a mistake" for Trump to run again in 2024. "My money would go to Nikki Haley," he added. "I think she would make a tremendous candidate for the Republican Party." Robertson then offered a sober assessment of Trump.
"You know, with all his talent and ability to raise money and grow big crowds, the president still lives in an alternate reality," said Robertson. "He really does. People say, 'Well, he's lying about this, that and the other.' But no, he doesn't lie; for him that's the truth. "He said Trump did a wonderful job for the economy, but at the same time he's very unpredictable and he fired people and he fought people and he has." Offended people and he continues down the line. " With Trump, "it's a mixed bag," Robertson said, "and I think it would be good to say," You had your day and it's time to move on. "
"Pat Robertson just proved that evolution exists, even in people who don't believe in evolution," joked comedian John Fugelsang. But Trump can find some consolation in the fact that Robertson's predictions have not always - or even usually - been confirmed. For example, in October he said God told him Trump would be re-elected, then an asteroid would hit Earth.
