Marion Gordon "Pat" Robertson (born March 22, 1930) is an American media mogul, televangelist, executive chairman, and former Southern Baptist minister who advocates conservative Christian ideals. He is host of “The 700 Club” and chairman of the Christian Broadcasting Network.
On “The 700 Club” on February 15, Pat Robertson was talking about people who don’t share President Trump’s ideas in politics. He was arguing that people who are working against President Trump are actually working against the will of God and the God’s plan for America. Did Robinson actually suggest that Trump became President of America because it was God's plan?
Right Wing Watch also reports the televangelist “wondered if President Obama and other Democrats may have participated in a grand conspiracy to bring down President Trump’s national security adviser Michael Flynn,” in order to damage the Trump administration.
Referring to Psalm 2:2, “The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed,” Robertson said that those challenging Trump are really fighting against God:
“I think, somehow, the Lord’s plan is being put in place for America and these people are not only revolting against Trump, they’re revolting against what God’s plan is for America. These other people have been trying to destroy America. These left-wingers and so-called progressives are trying to destroy the country that we love and take away the freedoms they love. They want collectivism. They want socialism. What we’re looking at is free markets and freedom from this terrible, overarching bureaucracy. They want to fight as much as they can but I think the good news is the Bible says, “He that sits in the heavens will laugh them to scorn,” and I think that Trump’s someone on his side that is a lot more powerful than the media.”
In short - Don’t mess with Trump if you don’t want to mess with the God’s authority and His plan for America, Robinson preached. Don’t say later that you weren’t warned.
