The National Security Strategy Report was published by the executive branch of the United States government. It was intended to be a comprehensive statement articulating the worldwide interests, goals, and objectives of the United States that are important to its security. Among the reporting requirements were those actions needed to deter aggression and to implement the national security strategy.
The President should submit a report on the national security strategy of the United States to Congress each year. However, especially in recent years, these reports had been made late or not at all.
NSS's were published in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2006, 2010, 2015 and by President Trump in December 2017.

The Strategy addressed key challenges and trends that affected US standing in the world, including:
+ Revisionist powers, such as China and Russia, that use technology, propaganda, and coercion to shape a world antithetical to US interests and values
In this Commentary feature the author argued that Europeans could take some solace from Trump’s support for NATO and the EU exhibited in the NSS. But the US president will want value for money.
