James Robison, one of the nation’s most respected evangelical leaders, issued a blistering rebuke of former President Trump.
Robison, who served as a spiritual adviser to the former president, said Trump has the tendency to “act like a little elementary school child.”
“If Mr. Trump can’t stop his little petty issues, how does he expect people to stop major issues?” Robison, the president of Life Outreach International, said Wednesday at a meeting of the National Association of Christian Lawmakers (NACL).
Robison told the crowd that Trump called him frequently during his time in office — asking for guidance – sometimes several times a day.

The televangelist then recounted the moment he rebuked the former president to his face.
“Everything you wanted him to hear — every single thing you ever prayed for him to hear — came through these lips right straight into his face,” Robison told the crowd Wednesday, his voice growing lower and louder. “And with the same force you’ve heard me talking to you, I spoke it to him.”
By now, Robison was shouting, practically spitting his words out as he recalled what he said he told Trump, the Post recounted.
“ ‘Sir, you act like a little elementary schoolchild and you shoot yourself in the foot every morning you get up and open your mouth! The more you keep your mouth closed, the more successful you’re gonna be!’ ” Robison said.
The crowd remained still. Some lawmakers in the ballroom exchanged glances, appearing unsure of how to respond. Robison joked that those in the audience must be thinking that approach didn’t work very well. A few people chuckled awkwardly.Washington Post
Robison continued: “It’s time for us to get together and pray and stop trying to destroy each other, and I make that loud and clearly heard to Mr. Trump! We’ve got to quit amputating each other, slicing each other, and come together in supernatural unity that Jesus Christ prayed for!”
