The president delivered the remark while introducing Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, who was present to watch Trump's announcement of executive orders that will cut red tape for the oil and gas industry.

"Come here, George," Trump commanded in front of a crowded room of energy workers. "Come over here, I want to meet you."

The president called Bush a "great guy" and friend of first son Donald Trump Jr.

"Truly, this is the Bush that got it right," Trump said, to applause and laughter. "I like him, I like him, he's going far. He's going places."
