Televangelist Pat Robertson, one of President Trump’s staunchest backers, on Monday described Trump as “very erratic,” called on him to accept that President-elect Joe Biden won and said the Republican should not consider running again in 2024.
The comments marked a sharp turnaround for Robertson, who recently voiced support for Trump’s false claims of widespread voter fraud and declared before the election that God had told him Trump was going to win.
“I think it’s a sideshow,” Robertson said Monday on his television show, “The 700 Club,” when asked whether he thinks Trump should run again in 2024. “I think it would be a mistake. My money would be on [former United Nations ambassador] Nikki Haley; I think she’d make a tremendous candidate for the Republican Party.”
Trump has refused to concede after losing to Biden on Nov. 3 and has redoubled efforts to overturn the election results even after the electoral college affirmed the Democrat’s win with 306 electoral votes. The president also has hinted that he may run again in four years.
