President Trump in California, "We are going to lead in Space again"

President Trump in California,

"The comic adventures that befall a crew of astronauts assigned to a remote military space station", IMDb notes of Space Force. "We may even have a space force, develop another one-space force". Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force or Coast Guard?

While visiting California on Tuesday for the first time since he was elected president, Donald Trump made a comment about the need for a new military arm: the "Space 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. Previous year some legislators pushed a bill in Congress that included a provision to establish a new branch of the military dubbed the Space Corps.

Trump didn't make clear what shape this "space force" might take and what adversaries it would confront.

I asked the Twitter if proclaiming war in space is just something a president can do, and apparently this was already discussed in the 60s.

"And I was not really serious, then I said what a great idea, maybe we'll have to do that".

But polls are unreliable and it's, therefore, unlikely that they alone would have made Netanyahu decide to have early elections. Lieberman can climb down from his high ladder and support the new draft bill, which represents significant chareidi compromise.

The Space Corps language was removed from the final version of the National Defense Authorization Act previous year.

Ever since the Space Age started with the Soviet Union's launch of Sputnik, there has been a military and national security aspect to space, even though there are treaties and a United Nations committee that explicitly talk about keeping space a place of peace.

Trump's own defense secretary and Air Force secretary argued vociferously against it when members of Congress pushed it previous year, O'Keefe said.

Trump also says that "very soon we're going to Mars", and that that wouldn't be happening if his 2016 rival, Hillary Clinton, had won.
