"Because they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, God gave them over to a depraved mind to do what ought not to be done," explained the former reality star. "They've become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed … burden, strife, malice, deceit."

Robertson then said the problem of this nation is that "fallible men" rely on the government to "handle" their problems.

The star admitted that at times, it feels like his opinion is an unpopular one, but he stands by his beliefs.

“He’s pro-God, he’s pro-life. I have no problem with any policy that he has put forward," he said while also praising him for facing criticism.
