Looks like the "Duck Dynasty" clan is a house divided when it comes to the upcoming presidential election.

Willie Robertson officially gave Donald Trump his endorsement at the 16th annual Outdoor Sportsman Awards in Las Vegas on Thursday night.

He said in a press release before the show: "He's not afraid to tell it like it is. He's a friend of the Second Amendment ... the man I'm standing behind to be the next President of the United States — Donald Trump."

After the announcement, Trump responded with his own statement saying he was honored by the endorsement and that Robertson is "a great person, has had tremendous success and a really terrific family."

Willie Robertson's decision to back Trump comes barely a week after his father, Phil, released a video endorsing Ted Cruz for president.


"I've looked at the candidates. Ted Cruz is my man. He fits the bill," Phil said.

Now we just need a tiebreaker. Maybe Uncle Si can offer his opinion.
