“Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson has made his 2016 choice.
The reality-television star announced Thursday evening at the Outdoor Sportsman Awards in Las Vegas that he had endorsed Donald Trump for president.
“Mr. Trump is a real leader,” Robertson said in a press release. “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.”

Trump said he was “truly honored” to receive the endorsement.
“He is a great person, has had tremendous success and a really terrific family,” Trump said. “He believes in my message and knows that I am the only one who will Make America Great Again!”
The endorsement comes as Trump attempts to woo conservative voters in Iowa. Earlier this week, he rolled out the endorsement of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
