Trump envisions space force someday in military

"We have the air force. We will have a space force" Trump said

Today at Miramar Naval Air Base in California, President Trump mentioned his idea for yet another Star Wars spinoff for a new branch of the military: the Space Force. We will have a space force...

On a day filled with White House staffing shake-ups, the president remained mostly on-script in his 25-minute remarks, commenting on the positive developments with North Korea and the potential for expanding the U.S. Space program. "We have the army, the navy".

The proposed Space Corps would have fallen under the Air Force branch. "Space Force. We have the Air Force; we'll have the Space Force". President Donald Trump wants a 'space force'.

"Then I said, 'What a great idea!' Maybe we'll have to do that, '" Trump said.

Trump continued by noting that the concept of a space force was one he both thought up and had previously dismissed. But he may be thinking of the National Defense Authorization Act that he signed into law in December.

Initially, Trump explained, he'd proposed the idea as a joke.

Since taking office, Trump has frequently touted his support for the United States military and placed high-ranking generals in top White House and cabinet posts. The idea was finally dropped from the Pentagon's funding bill by the end of past year, but it retains some support in Congress, where advocates say the USA is facing significant strategic vulnerabilities in the face of Russian and Chinese pushes into space warfare.

Trump's own defence secretary and air force secretary argued vociferously against it when members of Congress pushed it previous year, Sean O'Keefe, who was both NASA administrator and navy secretary under president George W. Bush, told the Associated Press. It's unclear if Trump's Space Force would be any similar to what the Space Crops was meant to be.
