On Monday, televangelist Pat Robertson seemed to turn on President Trump, saying that the “erratic” President Donald Trump needed to “move on” and that it would be a “mistake” to run for president again in 2024.

Robertson made his comments on his program “The 700 Club.”

Robertson: Forget Trump, 2024 Should Be All About Nikki Haley

Robertson said of the possibility that Trump might run again in 2024, “I think it is a sideshow. I think it will be a mistake.”

“My money would be on Nikki Haley,” Robertson said, touting Trump’s former United Nations ambassador. “She would make a tremendous candidate.”

The longtime televangelist then accused Trump of living in an “alternate reality.”

“With all his talent and the ability to raise money and grow large crowds, the president still lives in an alternate reality,” Robertson said. “He really does.”

“People say he lies about this, that, and the other,” Robertson continued. “To him, that is the truth. He had the biggest crowd on Inauguration Day. He had more people than ever. He was the most popular.”

“He saved NBC with ‘The Apprentice,’ go down the line of things that really aren’t true,” Robertson said. “People kept pointing to them.”

The Christian leader did have some positive things to say about the President, though.

Robertson pointed out that Trump was a major advocate for Evangelicals.

“Because they loved him so much, he was so strong for the Evangelicals,” Robertson noted. “The Evangelicals were with him all the way. But there was something about him that was good.”

“At the same time, he is very erratic, and he has fired people, fought people, he has insulted people, keeps going down the line,” Robertson said. “It is a mixed bag.”

“I think it would be well to say, ‘You have had your day. It is time to move on,” Robertson finished.
