Video: Pat Robertson Says Obama Wants to Diminish U.S. Power

| by Michael Allen

On the '700 Club' today, televangelist Pat Robertson claimed that the Obama administration’s plan to scale back Defense Department spending was a plot to “diminish us" and that the President Obama was "suspect" (video below).

Robertson said: "I don’t trust the motives of the President because he has made clear that his role in life is to diminish the power of the United States, he really just wants to diminish us, he wants to cut our nuclear arsenal dramatically, he wants to cut this, that and the other."

"Furthermore, he does not believe in American exceptionalism. So we’ve got a President who is suspect. So when he comes out with these massive cuts, you say, ‘are you really doing something to the budget or are you really trying to just diminish us’?”
