President Donald Trump's recent positive statements about the North Atlantic Treaty Organization are encouraging, according to Sen. Jack Reed.

"It's important for him to move clearly away from comments he made during the election," the Rhode Island Democrat said Thursday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," according to The Washington Times.

"I think he's made statements that are much more coherent and much more complimentary to the facts of the relationship with NATO and the United States have enjoyed for many years. I hope it represents a shift," Reed said.

The senator credited advice from Defense Secretary James Mattis and national security adviser H.R. McMaster. "I think he's being advised by Gen. Mattis and Gen. McMaster on the criticality of NATO, and I hope he's listening to that," Reed said.

Trump had expressed criticism of NATO, at one point calling the group "obsolete." The president later took back that critique.
