Phil Robertson may not have started out in support of Donald Trump, but he is now fully behind the Republican presidential candidate.

The “Duck Dynasty” patriarch, who backed former candidate Ted Cruz until he exited the race, said he was forced onto the “Trump train” but will do all he can to help the presumptive GOP nominee get elected in November.

“I was forced onto the Trump train, but I am happily volunteering my services for Mr. Trump, mainly because the Republican Party has spoken,” Robertson said on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” on Wednesday.

“The people have said we want Mr. Trump. So Mr. Cruz goes down — I love him — but now I’m on the Trump train and I’ll do everything I can to help him.”

And one area Robertson thought he could be helpful in Trump’s campaign is as a “spiritual adviser.”

“I’ll make a valiant attempt behind the scenes, you understand, to sit down with Donald with a Bible in between us and I might, can help him along with concepts like loving your enemies, loving your God, loving your neighbor,” he said. “I can see it now: Trump wins and the camera’s panning, and his spiritual adviser is me. Is America ready for it?”

Robertson is willing to back the real estate mogul despite what he sees as his lack of a political record.

“We have to be loyal to the party,” Robertson said. “I know Clinton’s record, or Bernie Sanders’. I know their record. With Donald, I’m not quite sure since he doesn’t have a record in the political arena. However, I’m taking my chances not even knowing.”

Robertson, who is releasing the film “Torchbearers” in July, called on politicians and all Americans to turn back to God.

“Why don’t we vet our thinking through the word of God, love God and love each other?” he said. “Why don’t we try that for a while? That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.”
