White House Weighs In On Biden/Trump Space Policy Overlaps

Keith's note: During the daily White House press briefing today space made the news again:

Kristin Fisher (Fox): "You know the Biden administration - they just announced its intention to retain the National Space Council - and this is on top of the White House voicing its support for the Space Force and NASA's Artemis program. I mean - these are three programs or policies that President Trump and the Trump administration put in place. So - would it be fair to say that space - and space policy - is one of the few areas where President Biden actually agrees with his predecessor?""

Jen Psaki: "I think that sounds accurate to me. Look - I think the President believes that the National Space Council provides an opportunity to generate national space policy strategies, synchronize on America's space activities at a time of unprecedented activity. It's also an opportunity to generate by America's own activities in space. So - it's certainly a program -- or a council - I should say -- he is excited to keep in place and one - I think it's fair to say - he agrees with the past administration's maintaining the program."
