Here we check the valid strings for the argument of the Date:: class constructor to create Date object under JavaScript, ie,
<script type="text/javascript">
var objDate;
objDate = new Date("Apr 03, 2020 18:10:04 GMT+0200");
<script>
We are trying to get the PHP date format string to format date time to form the pipeline PHP DateTime() => js Date() => document.write() to output on screen. Here is the summary of cases we tested for you:

Tab. I: + Valid Date Time String for Javascript::Date() class, - Invalid.

JavaScript is very English speaking. In effect, among the 3 first universal formats, the English month abbreviation is used. As it can be observed that no pure numerical date string is found like "2020-04-03 18:10:04" to fit JavaScript syntax in all browsers. Please check this with your preferred browser.

Detail of JavaScript Tests

Below, the bold date time outputs at the right hand side of => are the JavaScript Date Class results.

0. Good Format "mmm dd, yyyy hh:mm:ss GMT+0200"

For example, Apr 03, 2020 18:10:04 GMT+0200 =>

#js new Date() FeedIEChromeFirefoxSafariOperaMobile
0Apr 03, 2020 18:10:04 GMT+0200++++++

This format is valid for all browsers in our hands, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Mobile Safari. On PHP, you get this DateTime format of the current time by

<?php
$objDateTime = new DateTime();
$strDateTime = $objDateTime->format("M d, Y H:i:s \G\M\TO");
?>
One observes that this is the Standard English Date Time expression.

1. Another Good Format "mmm dd yyyy hh:mm:ss GMT+0200"

For example, Apr 03 2020 18:10:04 GMT+0200 =>

#js new Date() FeedIEChromeFirefoxSafariOperaMobile
1Apr 03 2020 18:10:04 GMT+0200++++++

This format is also valid for all browsers in our hands, including IE, Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Safari Mobile. On PHP, you get this DateTime format of the current time by

<?php
$objDateTime = new DateTime();
$strDateTime = $objDateTime->format("M d Y H:i:s \G\M\TO");
?>
One notes that this is another English Date Time expression with timezone.

2. Good Format "mmm dd, yyyy hh:mm:ss GMT+2"

For example, Apr 03, 2020 18:10:04 GMT+2 =>

#js new Date() FeedIEChromeFirefoxSafariOperaMobile
2Apr 03, 2020 18:10:04 GMT+2++++++
As shown, you can shorten the timezone notification.

Bad Formats

All following date time strings are good for some browsers, but unfortunately bad for others.

3. Format "yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss GMT+0200"

For example, 2020-04-03 18:10:04 GMT+0200 =>

#js new Date() FeedIEChromeFirefoxSafariOperaMobile
32020-04-03 18:10:04 GMT+0200-+--++

4. Format "yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss GMT+02:00"

For example, 2020-04-03 18:10:04 GMT+02:00 =>

42020-04-03 18:10:04 GMT+02:00-+--++

4. Format "yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss GMT+0200"

For example, 2020-04-03 18:10:04 GMT+02:00 =>

#js new Date() FeedIEChromeFirefoxSafariOperaMobile
52020-04-03 18:10:04 GMT+200-+--++

6. Format "dd mmm yyyy hh:mm:ss+02:00"

For example, 03 Apr 2020 18:10:04+02:00 =>

#js new Date() FeedIEChromeFirefoxSafariOperaMobile
603 Apr 2020 18:10:04+02:00-+----

7. Format "mmm dd yyyy hh:mm:ss GMT+02:00"

For example, Apr 03 2020 18:10:04 GMT+2:00 =>

#js new Date() FeedIEChromeFirefoxSafariOperaMobile
7Apr 03 2020 18:10:04 GMT+2:00-++-++

8. Format "mmm dd, yyyy hh:mm:ss GMT+02:00"

For example, Apr 03, 2020 18:10:04 GMT+02:00 =>

#js new Date() FeedIEChromeFirefoxSafariOperaMobile
8Apr 03, 2020 18:10:04 GMT+02:00-++-++

9. Format "yyyy-mmm-dd hh:mm:ss GMT+2"

#js new Date() FeedIEChromeFirefoxSafariOperaMobile
112020-04-03T18:10:04+02:00+++++-
You get this format by PHP5 DateTime=>format('c'). It's regrettable that JavaScript Mobile Safari does not support this format, as this is the universal date time string, used by SQL server, MySQL Server, ...

12. Format "yyyy-mmm-dd hh:mm:ss GMT+02:00"

For example, 2020-04-03 18:10:04+02:00 =>

#js new Date() FeedIEChromeFirefoxSafariOperaMobile
1304-03-2020 18:10:04 GMT+0200++---+
