A former NATO Supreme Allied Commander, Admiral James Stavridis, praised President Trump’s national security team calling it the “A-Team” during an interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.

Admiral Stavridis called President Trump’s national security advisor pick General H. R. McMaster a terrific choice, citing a book McMaster had written about speaking truth to power.

Geist then asked Stavridis to comment on President Trump’s foreign policy team that he has put together.

“He’s put the absolute A-Team together,” Stavridis said.
