Trump takes aim at NASA's climate budget, The Hill
"In a Wednesday speech in Florida, Trump slammed the Obama administration for "undermining our space program." "I will refocus its mission on space exploration," he vowed. "Under a Trump administration, Florida and America, will lead the way into the stars." Trump's remarks are in line with many congressional Republicans who have vowed to prioritize space exploration. The promise to boost exploration funding was likely welcome news for those who see America leading the world in space missions, including a high-profile effort to send astronauts to Mars within decades. But the remarks are also raising alarm among many who fear the GOP plans are a cover for slashing NASA's significant budget for climate research."
