Allaah [The Most High] said:

وَكَانَ الشَّيْطَانُ لِلْإِنسَانِ خَذُولًا

And Shaitan [Satan] is ever a deserter to man in the hour of need. [Surah Al-Furqaan. Aayah 29]

Shaytaan beautifies falsehood for the human being, makes the truth repugnant to him and gives him false hopes; then he deserts and frees himself from him just as [Allaah has informed us] that after the final Judgement is given on the Day of Judgement, shaytaan will say to all his followers:

وَقَالَ الشَّيْطَانُ لَمَّا قُضِيَ الْأَمْرُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَعَدَكُمْ وَعْدَ الْحَقِّ وَوَعَدتُّكُمْ فَأَخْلَفْتُكُمْ ۖ وَمَا كَانَ لِيَ عَلَيْكُم مِّن سُلْطَانٍ إِلَّا أَن دَعَوْتُكُمْ فَاسْتَجَبْتُمْ لِي ۖ فَلَا تَلُومُونِي وَلُومُوا أَنفُسَكُم ۖ مَّا أَنَا بِمُصْرِخِكُمْ وَمَا أَنتُم بِمُصْرِخِيَّ ۖ إِنِّي كَفَرْتُ بِمَا أَشْرَكْتُمُونِ مِن قَبْلُ

And Shaitan [Satan] will say when the matter has been decided: “Verily, Allah promised you a promise of truth. And I too promised you, but I betrayed you. I had no authority over you except that I called you, so you responded to me. So blame me not, but blame yourselves. I cannot help you, nor can you help me. I deny your former act in associating me [Satan] as a partner with Allah [by obeying me in the life of the world]. [Surah Ibraaheem Aayah 22]
