The pro-Republican Duck Dynasty family, the Robertsons, is putting their money where their mouth is.

On Wednesday, Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson will attend the anti-Iran nuclear deal rally outside the U.S. Capitol to be attended by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, billionaire and 2016 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, reported Brietbart News.

"Phil Robertson will join Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, and other conservative leaders to stand with America and Israel," the Robertson team said. "Let us never partner with evil by funding the destruction of our allies!"

The appearance of Phil in the rally has elicited positive reaction from Tea Party Patriots' Jenny Beth Martin who welcomed the news.

Martin told Britbart News in an emai, "We are excited to have Phil Robertson join us at the rally to stop the Iran Deal. He will help amplify the message about how dangerous this deal is for America and why Congress needs to put America and America's security first."

Wednesday's rally will be held on Tea Party Patriots' Jenny Beth Martin at around 1p.m. Aside from the Republican presidential contenders, other high-profile conservatives will attend the rally, including several members of Congress.

Willie Robertson Says Donald Trump Strikes Chord With Voters

Meanwhile, another Duck Dynasty star, is throwing his support to a Republican presidential aspirant. Willie Robertson says he was impressed with Trump whom he says speaks with honesty and authenticity. He said Trump seems to strike a chord with voters because "He talks like a regular guy. That's refreshing. The others are going to have to step up their game."

However, Willie clarified that he has not abandoned his friend Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who is also seeking the presidential nomination, reports The Times.

Willie Robertson said of Trump, "He has his finger on the pulse of how a lot of people feel about illegal immigration; I get it. We know his plan to send all of the illegal immigrants back isn't going to happen, but change will come and it needs to come. We need a system better than what we have now, and he started the conversation."

According to Willie, while he does not believe that Trump's proposal to send illegal millions of Mexican immigrants back to Mexico as an unrealistic goal, he admires the billionaire's strong passion for his stance that many other candidates are also following his lead.

Trump has made stemming illegal immigration as the focal point of his presidential bid, with some of his comments about Mexican immigrants generating mixed reactions.

Also, Willie said he hopes that his friend Jindal could become a major presidential contender.

"I'm just waiting to see if Bobby has enough oomph to get some traction and momentum," Willie said. "I still like him. We'll see."
