Trump Talks Traveling To Mars, Proposes New Space Force

Trump floats the idea of a US military "Space Force"

"We should have a new force called the Space Force", Trump said to troops at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego. How about the Space Force instead?

From Star Wars and Star Trek to Spaceballs and Starship Troopers, sci-fi fans called on their favorite characters to help form and lead the "Space Force" - not to mention that there even was a hokey TV movie in 1978 titled Space Force. Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force or Coast Guard? We have the Air Force.

The commander-in-chief doesn't think the US military is large enough - so he announced during a freaky press conference Tuesday that it will expand beyond planet Earth via a "space force". President Donald Trump wants a 'space force'.

Trump continued by noting that the concept of a space force was one he both thought up and had previously dismissed. "I oppose the creation of a new military service and additional organizational layers at a time when we are focused on reducing overhead and integrating joint warfighting efforts", Defense Secretary Jim Mattis wrote in a letter to the ranking members of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees. "Then I said, 'What a great idea, maybe we'll have to do that'". Maybe we'll have to do that'.

Which branch of the United States military would you like to enlist in?

The battle for Mars between Elon Musk's space mercenaries and Trump's Space Force is going to be tremendous. Vice President Mike Pence cited America's "prosperity, security and identity" in describing the initiative past year, noting that Russian Federation was eclipsing America beyond Earth's atmosphere and cautioning that both Russian Federation and China were formulating technology that could interfere with U.S. satellites.

It's not entirely clear what he means by "develop another one".
