Ted Nugent has come out in favor of Donald Trump, appearing in a recent campaign video he’s promoting on social media.

The 67-year-old rocker has been extremely outspoken in the past about second amendment issues – he currently serves on the Board of Directors for the National Rifle Association – and other conservative hot buttons. During his segment in the eight minute video, he singles specifically touches on hunter’s rights.

“Hunting, fishing, trapping – we the people own these precious renewable natural resources,” he says. “It’s a way of life, which is why conservation is the greatest success story in the world here in America. Hillary Clinton is against all of these things. She is against the freedom that is uniquely American. Donald Trump will safeguard the things that make America the greatest place in the world.”

He also shared his support for Trump in a lengthy statement posted to his official Facebook page. Denouncing “professional politicians” that he claims have “screwed over America,” “put America on the road to bankruptcy” and “worked tirelessly to divide us instead of uniting us,” Nugent praised the GOP candidate.

“Donald Trump isn’t a professional politician. He’s never been elected or appointed to any public office. If you want to do something truly different and make America great again, he’s your candidate.”

He concludes his message: “Vote Donald Trump for president.”
