President Trump floats military 'Space Force' idea

President Donald Trump said Tuesday he wants the U.S. military to create a new "space force", adding to the Pentagon's current ground, navy and air forces.

But that didn't stop President Trump for advocating for a "Space Force" today.

From Star Wars and Star Trek to Spaceballs and Starship Troopers, sci-fi fans called on their favorite characters to help form and lead the "Space Force" - not to mention that there even was a hokey TV movie in 1978 titled Space Force. "We have the army, the navy". "We have the air force".

"So think of that, Space Force, because we are spending a lot and we have a lot of private money coming in, tremendous", the President said. That I can tell you.

Trump continued by noting that the concept of a space force was one he both thought up and had previously dismissed.

Republican Representative Mike Rogers told a February 28 conference at the Center for Strategic and International Studies that a separate space corps could be carved out from the air force within "three to five years".

It was unclear whether The Donald was joking about the idea of "Space Force". Maybe we'll have to do that'. The goal was for the United States to stay ahead of rivals like Russian Federation and China, which are advancing in space-related military operations. But the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act that passed last November actually banned it.

Since taking office, Trump has frequently touted his support for the USA military and placed high-ranking generals in top White House and cabinet posts.

"It's really what we're already doing but giving elevated status to the mission", American University space expert Howard McCurdy said of Trump's proposal. It's unclear if Trump's Space Force would be any similar to what the Space Crops was meant to be.
