Dem Senator Praises Trump’s Shift on NATO

Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI) told MSNBC that he prefers the president’s new stance.

Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI) praised President Trump’s recent rhetoric and stances on NATO in an appearance on Morning Joe on Thursday.

“I hope it represents a shift,” Reed said of the president’s new positions.

“I think he’s made statements now that are much more coherent and much more complimentary to the facts of the relationship that NATO and the United States has enjoyed for many years,” he said.

Reed praised the influence of Defense Secretary James Mattis and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster in the White House, and expressed hope for the president’s upcoming remarks to the alliance.

Trump has previously questioned the usefulness of NATO in the post-Cold War world.
