It appears that Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson has given his support to presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Robertson joined Trump at his recent campaign rally at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City.
Christian Today reports that Trump said, "Where's Willie? Where the hell is Willie? Willie, get over here! Look at this guy! Look at this guy!”
Robertson then joined Trump on the stage and gave him a big hug. He began to leave the stage, but Trump pulled him back to the podium and questioned whether he had Robertson’s support.
In response, Robertson stated, "I do like me some Trump, I gotta admit. Here's the deal. We're both successful businessmen. We both have pretty big shows on television. We both have wives that are 1,000 times better looking than us, so I like Trump."
It was thought that the Robertson family would support Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal who is also in the presidential race.
"Bobby is a good friend of ours,” Willie has stated. “He and his wife are good friends of Korie and mine. He has been on our television show. Anybody that comes down and has been on an episode of 'Duck Dynasty,' obviously is the frontrunner in my book," Willie joked.
It remains to be seen whether the Robertsons will make an official announcement of which presidential candidate they support.
