The Joint Chiefs of Staff are finalizing a classified military strategy they plan to present to President-elect Donald Trump detailing the military challenges to the US, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein said Saturday.
The classified report has been underway for months, and is spearheaded by General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs. Key commanders such as General Joseph Votel, head of Central Command and others have also been involved. The report was not created specifically ffor Trump, but for whomever the next president would be.
The five threats — posed by Iran, North Korea, China, Russia and violent extremism — are detailed in annexes to the classified report. There are no formal military responses and options detailed.

The report was being prepared regardless of whom won the election.
