Willie Robertson, the Duck Dynasty television star, endorsed GOP frontrunner Donald Trump on Thursday, saying Trump has two attributes that America needs —”success and strength.”
“Mr. Trump is a real leader,” Robertson said of the real-estate mogul. “He represents success and strength, two attributes our country needs. Like me, he is a successful businessman and family man and I endorse his candidacy for President of the United States.”
“I am truly honored to receive Willie’s endorsement,” Trump said in response to the endorsement. “He is a great person, has had tremendous success and a really terrific family. He believes in my message and knows that I am the only one who will Make America Great Again!”
Trump, along with his son Don Jr. and Robertson, attended the Outdoor Sportsman Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada on Thursday.
Phil Robertson, Willie’s father, endorsed GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) last week.
