Some context for the CrowdStrike part of the Trump call: in 2017, Trump told the Associated Press that he's heard the company is based in Ukraine (though it is based in California) and that it's owned by a wealthy Ukrainian (though it isn't).

"That's what I heard," he said.
Who is the wealthy Ukrainian to whom Trump referred? It isn't clear, but there is an extreeemely vague conspiracy theory - like a fraction of a theory - about how a Ukrainian businessman donates to the Atlantic Council think tank at which CrowdStrike's co-founder is a fellow.
It is possible Trump was being extremely vague about CrowdStrike to Zelensky to speak in innuendo. It's also possible he's heard extremely unbaked conspiracy theories about the company floating around Trumpworld and conveyed them extremely vaguely because they're extremely vague.
