Reality TV star Phil Robertson thinks senator and former presidential candidate Ted Cruz should move on and endorse Donald Trump.

Robertson, who supported Cruz during his run for the White House, took to Fox News' "Fox & Friends" Thursday morning to deliver the message.

"I mean give me a break Ted, go ahead and endorse the man," Robertson said after Cruz's speech at the Republican National Convention Wednesday night, where he refused to endorse Trump. "I mean, you lost, he won."

"I love that dude," Robertson continued, speaking of Cruz. "But all the guys who lost and gals, they all need to swallow their pride and say the people [and] the Republican Party has said Donald Trump is the man we want in the White House."

According to Robertson, the convention has taught him a lesson about politics.

"So I'm learning about politics as I'm going and I think maybe the key word is they need to learn how to forgive each other and let's move on."

Robertson isn't the only Republican unhappy about Cruz's refusal to throw his support behind the official nominee.

"He's a fraud. He's a liar. He's self-centered" said Rep. Pete King Wednesday evening. Former GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee called Cruz a traitor to the party, and Gov. Chris Christie called the speech "awful" and "selfish."

At a breakfast Thursday morning, Cruz reiterated that he would not back down, citing Trump's attacks on his family for why he would not honor the pledge he made during the Republican primary saying he would vote for the eventual nominee.

"The day that pledge was abrogated was the day this became personal. I am not in the habit of supporting people who attack my wife," Cruz said, declaring that he wouldn't "come like a servile puppy dog and say, 'Thank you very much for maligning my wife and maligning my father.'"
