What's Pat Robertson's net worth? Televangelist says Donald Trump 'lives in alternate reality', backs Joe Biden
On Monday, December 21, televangelist Pat Robertson, who was one of President Donald Trump’s supporters, called POTUS “very erratic” and said, as reported by The Washington Post, “You know, with all his talent and the ability to be able to raise money and grow large crowds, the president still lives in an alternate reality. He really does. People say, ‘Well, he lies about this, that and the other.’ But no, he isn’t lying; to him, that’s the truth." Robertson also called on him to accept that President-elect Joe Biden won.
These comments were made during his television show, ‘The 700 Club’. He also commented on the possibility of Trump running for 2024 elections. Robertson said, "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." Robertson stated that Trump has "done a marvelous job for the economy, but at the same time he is very erratic, and he’s fired people and he’s fought people and he’s insulted people and he keeps going down the line". He added, “I think it will be well to say, 'You’ve had your day and it’s time to move on'."
In the 1980s and 1990s, as The Washington Post notes, Robertson supposedly helped in the rise of the religious right and has been significant among religious conservatives for decades. He is usually known for making controversial remarks on his show and predicting God’s judgment. In early 2017, after Trump’s administration began, Robertson suggested that those who were revolting against the president were revolting against God. A spokesman for Christian Broadcasting Network, Chris Roslan, estimated that about a million people watch ‘The 700 Club’ across the network’s platforms.
Robertson then reiterated several of Trump’s claims: "He had the biggest crowd on Inauguration Day. He had more people than ever. He was the most popular of people — he saved NBC with ‘The Apprentice'. " He added, “You go down the line of things that really aren’t true. And, you know, people kept pointing to them, but because they loved him so much and he was so strong for the evangelicals — the evangelicals were with him all the way — but there was something about him that was good, that God placed him in that office for the time."
What is Pat Robertson's net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Robertson’s net worth is estimated to be about $100M. As reported by MEAWW, in October, he claimed that "God" has told him about the result of the presidential elections and that Trump will be re-elected. "First of all, I want to say without question, Trump is going to win the election," Robertson said to viewers during a segment on the chat show ‘The 700 Club’ on CBN News on October 20. Robertson, 90, who founded the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), also said, "What I think very frankly is the only thing that will fulfill the word of Jesus… is some kind of asteroid strike on the globe. It’s sudden destruction. It’s not going to be some nuclear war. We’re not going to be allowed to blow this earth up."
Here's what Twitter has to say

Who is next?” A user commented, “Am I hallucinating? Pat Robertson tells Trump to move on.”
