In a rally at the Oklahoma State Fair, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump called "Duck Dynasty" star Willie Robertson to the stage, asking, "Do you love Trump?" The A&E star and outspoken Christian responded, "I Do Like Me Some Trump."

"Where's Willie? Where the hell is Willie? Willie, get over here! Look at this guy! Look at this guy!" Trump said, calling Robertson to the stage Friday night, according to ABC News.

When Robertson came to the stage, he shook hands with and hugged Trump, and apparently wanted to leave the stage. But Trump pulled him to the podium, and then asked him if he loves Trump.

"I do like me some Trump, I gotta admit," said Robertson from the stage. "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."

After Robertson left the stage, Trump said, "Willie everybody. Great guy."

Trump also told the crowd that America would have to get used to winning again if he becomes president.

"Our country doesn't have any victories anymore," he was quoted as saying. "We don't win. We don't win at anything. We don't win with ISIS. We don't win with China, Japan, Mexico—we don't win with anybody.

"And we are going to start winning so much that you're going to get sick and tired of winning. You're going to get bored of winning."

He added: "We have many difficulties. Our biggest difficulty is our politicians who are all talk and no action. They keep working, they just want one thing: they want their job renewed every two or four years."

Earlier on Friday, Trump spoke at the Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C., carrying his Bible in his hand.

"I love Christmas. I love Christmas. But you see 'Happy Holidays' all over," he was quoted as saying. "I wanna see 'Christmas.' Other people can have their holidays, but Christmas is Christmas. I'm for seeing 'Merry Christmas.' Remember the expression 'Merry Christmas?' You don't see it anymore. You're going to see it if I get elected, I can tell you."

Robertson earlier backed Bobby Jindal, who's been an outspoken critic of Trump.

"He's a great man. He's a Godly man," said Robertson, of Jindal, a Catholic, in an interview with Fox Talk Radio's "Kilmeade and Friends" in May. "He's honest, and so I'd like to see if he makes a run at it. And, you know, if so, we'll definitely be trying to help him out."

Robertson said the first time he met Jindal he was amazed, not by his political skills but his preaching at a Louisiana church. "[Jindal] stood up and preached. He wasn't really political, he just told about his own relationship with the Lord. It was very impressive to us. I know the values he has … and that guy is one of the smartest persons I've ever known."

Last year, Jindal's wife, Supriya, joined Willie Robertson's wife, Korie Robertson, to spread awareness about adoption by rappelling 300 feet down the One America Place building in Baton Rouge.

When Robertson's father, Phil Robertson, was criticized for his comments to GQ Magazine on homosexuality last year, Jindal came to his defense. He said he acknowledges "that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views."
