Trump Wants to Create US Military "Space Force"

Wochit - March 14, 2018

President Donald Trump suggested creating a branch of the military for space on Tuesday while speaking to US Marines in San Diego.

"My new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war-fighting domain just like the land, air, and sea," Trump said, speaking at Miramar Air Station.

"We may even have a Space Force."

Although Trump appeared to propose the plan from the stage, the idea is by no means novel.
