This weekend, it appeared that Louisiana Gov Bobby Jindal (R) might have lost his most high-profile endorsement in the 2016 presidential race: “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson.
Trump said at the Friday campaign event, summoning Robertson to the stage. ‘Here’s the deal. We’re both successful businessmen. “We both have pretty big shows on television”, he added. The A&E star and outspoken Christian responded, “I Do Like Me Some Trump”.
The Robertson family, who live in West Monroe, La., first met Jindal long before “Duck Dynasty” became a household name. We don’t win. we don’t win at anything. At the time Willie said that it was time for “Someone different” to lead the country after this next election and he said that Jindal is a close family friend whom he’d like to see be president. Trump said to the crowd. “I still like him”. ‘And we are going to start winning so much that you’re going to get sick and worryof winning.
Trump also spoke at the Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C. early Friday.
He said: ‘Mexico… I love Mexico – I love the Mexican people, thousands of them work for me – but we’ve gotta build a wall on the border. “You’re going to get bored of winning”, he continued, before explaining why he chose to run for the party’s nomination.
“The word “Christmas” – I love Christmas… But you see “Happy Holidays” all over”, he was quoted as saying.
Robertson said in the September,8 Gannett story he was withholding his support for candidates other than Jindal “for now”.
Robertson in the past has praised Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal. Willie Robertson tends to be fairly diplomatic, but everybody remembers the headlines from when his father Phil shared his conservative opinions in an interview in 2013.
