“Q: The top republican on the House Armed Services Committee is asking y ou to apologize for some of the comments you you made about the Space Force in the briefing room yesterday. WIll you apologize?
Jen Psaki: I did send a tweet last night – you may not all be on Twitter – we invite the members of Space FOrce here to provide an update to all of you on all of the important work that they are doing. We certainly look forward to seeing continued updates from their team.
Q: Big picture here – I mean: does the Space Force have the full support of the Biden Administration or is the President, perhaps, at some point try to get rid of it, or in some way diminish it?
Jen Psaki: They absolutely have the full support of the Biden Administration and we are not revisiting the decision to establish the Space Force. The desire for the Department of Defense to focus greater attention and resources on the growing security challenges in space has long been a bipartisan issue informed by numerous independent commissions and studies conducted across multiple Administrations. Thousands of men and women proudly serve in the Space Force. As you know it was established by Congress and any other steps would have to be taken by Congress – not by the Administration.”
