Pat Robertson Escalates Attacks on Trump Over Syria Pullout, Says It's Like Appeasing Hitler in 1938

President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw US Special Forces from northern Syria is still receiving backlash for abandoning Kurdish allies in the region, leaving them vulnerable to aggression from neighboring Turkey.

Even far-Right televangelist and 700 Club host Pat Robertson is decrying the move, despite his staunch support for Donald Trump.

Earlier this month, Robertson said the withdrawal put Trump "in great danger of losing the mandate of Heaven."

Now, Robinson is comparing the President's misguided optimism to that of former British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, whose reliance on promises from Adolf Hitler resulted in concessions from the U.K. and the expansion of Hitler's hold over Europe during World War II.

Watch below.

More often than not, the views expressed by Robertson on his show range from ignorant to downright harmful, but in this case, the comparisons of Trump to Chamberlain were spot on:

"The President of the United States is modeling Neville Chamberlain...We have surrendered territory to a wicked dictator and have given over the best army in the Middle East, has been disbanded."

Robertson reminded viewers that Chamberlain was reelected, and he thought Trump would be reelected too, but that "within a year or more after the election, we're going to be struggling for our life."

He continued:

"Those who will not heed the lesson of history are doomed to live it again."

People were surprised to find themselves agreeing with Robertson.

A white evangelical, Pat Robertson's audience are widely religious Trump supporters. Some hoped that Robertson's willingness to critique the President could lead one of Trump's most loyal demographics to question its support.

Trump claims that there is now a permanent ceasefire in place in Northern Syria, but his critics thinks he's more naive than Neville Chamberlain for believing it.
