President Trump will direct the Pentagon to establish "a sixth branch of the armed forces dedicated to protecting American interests in outer space."
During a speech at a meeting of the National Space Council, Mr. Trump announced plans to protect American interests in space through monitoring commercial traffic and debris, initiatives he said would be “great not only in terms of jobs and everything else, it’s great for the psyche of our country.”
Space Force is one of those ideas that the opposing party would love if their guy had come up with it. Had Obama just called this an expansion of NASA then Dems would freakin' love it. #SpaceForce#MAGA#NASA#Trump
