"Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson is known for his unconventional, often controversial opinions on social issues - and his view of media outlets that have been accusing Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump of being a "fascist" is no exception.

Speaking to Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon, Robertson stated: "Satan controls our news media, Satan controls our institutions of higher learning, and he controls what goes on in Hollywood... They will label people like Trump what they are," he says.

"There [are] two great powers at work. There's good-that's God-and [there's] evil. You have the larger portion [that is] controlled by the evil one," he added.

The outspoken "Duck Commander" stars in a Citizens United documentary called Torchbearer, which explores in depth what happens to Western societies when God is absent from public life.

He told Breitbart that America is currently in a "spiritual crisis, no doubt about that" and asserted that the country needs a spiritual fix - not a political one.

"It's more of a spiritual fix than it is a political one, in my opinion," Robertson said. "Therefore, we can pray for our country, but the last thing we want to do is sit at home. We have to get rid of this politically correct crap and go back to biblical correctness."

"There is no downside to loving God and loving your neighbor, for crying out loud. I wish we would just try keeping two of God's laws: don't murder and don't steal. It's two of the top 10. I wonder if we just kept those two, would life be better? What do you think?" he asked.

While his son, Willie, supported Trump from the very beginning, Phil initially endorsed Trump's opponent Ted Cruz for the White House. However, he joined his son in supporting Trump after Cruz withdrew from the race and said he believes God will be the source of the businessman's common sense as well.

In a separate interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the reality star said he will always vote on the Republican ticket due to his views on abortion.

"I'll go with the platform that I discovered when I was 28," he said. "I looked at the Democrats and the Republicans, and at least the Republicans aren't for killing their children or for perversion, so I'm a Republican. So I'll back old Donald."

When asked if he thinks Hillary Clinton is a "good candidate" on the other side, Robertson said her "long" record proves otherwise: "I know which way we'll go with her, but I'm not sure with Donald. And remember, I'm a hunter. We shoot squirrels and ducks and eat 'em, and she says she'll take our guns. All we're doing is shooting targets, and alligators and cottonmouth snakes, and she wants to take that away from us?"
