Televangelist Pat Robertson claimed that God had told him Donald Trump would win the presidential elections before an asteroid strikes the Earth. On Tuesday, Robertson claimed an asteroid would hit the planet five years after Trump’s November 2020 win, and maybe “bring the end” to the world.

“First of all, I want to say without question, Trump is going to win the election,” he said. “That doesn’t mean you sit home and don’t vote. That means you get out and do everything you can to work, but he’s going to win. That’s, I think, a given,” he added.

Pat Robertson, who is also the founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network, also claimed all sorts of disasters would beset the U.S. and the world after the elections. The 90-year-old televangelist said these would include civil unrest, at least two attempts to kill Trump, and a war against Israel.

He said the unfortunate events would be “put down by God” before the world finally sees “at least five years or more of extraordinary peace” as God intervenes. “God is going to bring a period of great peace,” he 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,” he said. “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,” he added.

He said the asteroid hitting the earth might mean the end of the world. However, reports suggest that Robertson has incorrectly predicted the end of the world twice before. In 1976, he made similar predictions when he said the world would end in 1982. When that did not happen, he once again wrote in his 1990 book titled “The New Millennium” that the end of time would be on April 29, 2007.

An American media mogul and televangelist, Pat Robertson is also a political commentator and former Republican presidential candidate. He is an advocate of conservative Christian ideology and is known for his activities in Republican party politics.
