Crenshaw a former Navy Seal has risen to prominence within the GOP for his willingness to publically debate the issues.
"And we’re joined by a man that I’ve gotten to know and respect," Trump said. "And he’s highly, highly — this is a very capable person who has really developed a voice that you rarely develop as such a young person, and so new to this whole crazy political game. But I’m new too, Dan Crenshaw. I’m new too. Where is Dan Crenshaw? Where is he? Where is Dan?
"Some guys are in Congress there — they have 40 years, they don’t have your voice," Trump added. "Thank you. And I don’t mean the voice, speaking; I mean people listening to what you say. Thank you very much. Great job."
Crenshaw acknowledged the shoutout, jumped up and started flashing what looked like a red note card. The president couldn't quite see it, so he gave up and invited the congressman onstage.
The president smiled and told the crowd that Crenshaw had handed him his "no" vote on impeachment.
