Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson offered GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump some campaign advice: Avoid the devil’s attempt to “get you off on rabbit trails.”
“The Lord has handed Mr. Trump a gift of 1.2 percent GDP growth, which is absolutely pathetic and horrible,” the televangelist said, noting that instead of talking about economic growth, Trump is talking about “Muslim heroes or fallen warriors.”
“Stay off that and talk about the economy,” he advised.
When cohost Wendy Griffith asked why Trump seems to be so easily “baited by these tweets and all these things,” Robertson said that “with Christians, the devil will get you off on rabbit trails every chance you get.”
“If you are susceptible to them and if you respond, then he’ll — there will be incitement constantly in your life,” he said. “You have to block all that stuff out and concentrate on the one thing that is important. In the election right now, stay on message. It is the economy.”
