Hey – Let's Build A Space Force!

“My new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war fighting domain. Just like the land, air, and sea. We may have a Space Force. Develop another one. Space Force. We have the Air Force – we’ll have a Space Force. We have the Army, the Navy. You know I was saying it the other day because we are doing a tremendous amount of work in space. I said ‘maybe we need a new force – we’ll call it the Space Force – and I was not really serious – and then I said what a great idea – maybe we’ll have to do it. That could happen. That could be the breaking shore. Look at all those people back there. Look at that. Ahhh – that fake news. Ugh. They know – they understand. So think of that: Space Force. Because we’re spending a lot – and we have a lot of private money coming in – tremendous. You saw what happened the other day – tremendous success. From the very beginning many of our astronauts have been soldiers and sailors, airmen, coast guardsmen, and marines. And our service members will be vital to ensuring that America continues to lead the way into the stars. It will lead the way in space. We’re way, way behind – and we’re catching up fast – so fast that nobody even believes it.”
