Rep. Dan Crenshaw: Trump Is Neither the Devil nor Jesus


Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) does not believe former President Donald Trump should be “[excommunicated].”

The Republican lawmaker was pressed by NBC News’s Chuck Todd, “You believe he’s the legitimate leader of the Republican Party?”

“I believe that you’re not going to excommunicate a former president, right?” Crenshaw replied during Sunday’s interview. “And I refuse to, I refuse to go into this sort of black-and-white thinking about, it’s either totally one thing or totally the other.”

He continued, “These are complex human relationships that involve millions of people. And I have always said, look, I do not think Trump is the devil, and I won’t say that. I don’t think he’s Jesus either. You know, I’m a rational human being about this, OK?”

Crenshaw declared that he is refusing to “allow this drama to engulf us.” The Congressmember added that he stands by “everything” he has ever said.

The Texas lawmaker also clashed with Todd during his interview regarding claims of election fraud.

Crenshaw’s remarks came shortly after Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) was purged from her leadership post as House Republican Conference chair just days before.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) was then elected as the new No. 3 House Republican on Friday.

Cheney spoke out against Trump’s claims regarding the 2020 presidential election, and continued to do so after the ouster vote.
