Willie ‘Boss Hog’ Robertson begins Monday night’s pro-Trump pep rally
Says police officers, military members, small business owners and job-seekers can count on Donald Trump to ‘have your back’
Robertson endorsed Trump in January after his father Phil Robertson threw his weight behind Ted Cruz
‘Duck Dynasty’ star Willie Robertson led off a series of speeches about Donald Trump during the Republican National Convention’s opening night in Cleveland, making the case that the billionaire politician can be trusted to protect the American public.
‘America is in a bad spot, and we need a president who will have our back,’ he said.
‘If you’re looking for a job, or trying to grow a business like I am, Donald Trump will have your back,’ Robertson’s prepared remarks continue, with that tag line as a recurring refrain.
‘If you’re a serviceman fighting overseas, or a cop who is risking their lives to help keep us safe at home, Donald Trump will have your back.’
The crowd of thousands gathered at the Quicken Loans Arena cheered at the mention of police. Trump has described himself as ‘the law and order candidate.’
‘If you’re an average American who feels like you’ve been forgotten, neglected by far away leaders, that the deck is stacked against you, and you just can’t win, Donald Trump will have your back,’ Robertson continued.
Robertson was among the earliest TV entertainers with a broad reach to embrace the unconventional politician, endorsing him in January at the Outdoor Sportsman Awards in Las Vegas.
