“I was forced on to the Trump train, but I am happily volunteering my services for Mr. Trump mainly because the Republican Party has spoken,” Robertson — who initially endorsed [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] — said. “The people have said, ‘We want Mr. Trump.’”

“So, Mr. Cruz goes down. I love him, but now I’m on the Trump train and I’ll do everything I can to help him. Hey, we have to be loyal to the party.”

Robertson said he wants to be Trump’s spiritual adviser.

“I’ll make a valiant attempt behind the scenes, you understand, to sit down with Donald with a Bible in between us and I might can help him along with concepts like loving your enemies, loving your God, loving your neighbor” Robertson added.

“Even your enemies – forgive them and move on. I may can help him in that area. And I can see it now – Trump wins, and the camera is panning and his spiritual adviser is me.” (RELATED: Bryan Cranston: ‘I Believe Donald Trump Loves This Country’)
