CLEVELAND — “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson helped kick off the prime-time slate of speakers at the Republican National Convention Monday evening by saying that no matter who you might be, Donald Trump will “have your back.”

“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,” Mr. Robertson said.

“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,” he said.

Mr. Robertson acknowledged that Mr. Trump might not always be politically correct, but said Mr. Trump will always tell you the truth “as he sees it.”

“And that’s why we can trust him to make America great again as our next president,” Mr. Robertson said.

The theme for Monday, the opening night of the GOP convention, is “Make America Safe Again,” with other speakers touching on the issues of national security, immigration and veterans.
