Donald Trump has been getting criticism from the left and from the right over his decision to deploy the U.S. military on the Black Lives Matter protestors.
And now, televangelist Pat Robertson is joining in on the criticism.
Robertson, who has been a vocal leader of the president, told his 700 Club TV show viewers that he did not agree with Trump’s decision.
“It seems like now is the time to say, ‘I understand your pain, I want to comfort you, I think it’s time we love each other,’” Robertson said.
“But the president took a different course,” he continued. “He said ‘I am the president of law and order’ and he issued a heads-up. He said, ‘I am ready to send in military troops if the nation’s governors don’t act to quell the violence that has rocked American cities.’ Matter of fact, he spoke of them as being ‘jerks.’ You just don’t do that, Mr. President! It isn’t cool!”
Take a look at his remarks in the video clip below:
