Hawley praises Trump's courage, his willingness to "stand up to our enemies overseas"
"How about the leadership of President Trump?" Hawley asked. "What do you think?
"When I think of President Trump, one word comes to mind- courage."
Hawley praised Trump, who returned last week from a summit meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. "He continues to stand up to our enemies overseas.
"He's providing the leadership this country needs."
Hawley said he would commit himself to helping the president's work in "making America great again."
Trump was also lavish in his praise of Hawley, who is running for the Republican nomination for the U. S. Senate seat currently held by Democrat Claire McCaskill.
"We need Josh badly," the president said.
Trump motioned for Hawley to come toward him. "Come here, Josh." Trump embraced him and shook his hand.
"This is a special man."
