Donald Trump proposes 'Space Force' to battle in the stars

America should create its own separate military space force, President Donald Trump mentioned in an offhand remark Tuesday that would change the course of US space policy. We'll call it the space force.' Not really serious", he told the crowd to mixed laughter, "And then I said 'What a great idea.

In no time, social media was mocking the president's comment and, of course, began spewing out memes. "We may even have a "space force"-develop another one-space force".

The military space program has mostly been led by the Air Force.

Trump will be in Los Angeles later in the evening for a private fundraiser near, but not in, Beverly Hills. The Air Force called the mandate "unnecessary", and some have said the corps would be redundant due to the branch's existing space efforts.

"From the very beginning, many of our astronauts have been soldiers and airmen, coast guard men and marines".

After extensive politicking the US Congress passed the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act in November. Past year some legislators pushed a bill in Congress that included a provision to establish a new branch of the military dubbed the Space Corps.

Republican congressman Mike Rogers, who proposed the idea, argued that the Air Force was prioritising its fighter jets over space, and a dedicated service was needed to stay ahead of China and Russian Federation in what was described as the next frontier of warfare. The idea was finally dropped from the Pentagon's funding bill by the end of previous year, but it retains some support in Congress, where advocates say the United States is facing significant strategic vulnerabilities in the face of Russian and Chinese pushes into space warfare.
