Trump Floats Having Space Force

The Latest: Trump says CA defiance on immigration must stop

President Donald Trump suggested creating a "Space Force" while addressing troops at Miramar Marine Corp Air Station in San Diego, California, on Tuesday.

But that didn't stop President Trump for advocating for a "Space Force" today. He then suggested the United States might have to start a "Space Force", which was met with chuckles from the audience. 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".

Trump didn't make clear what shape this "space force" might take and what adversaries it would confront.

"At a time when we are trying to integrate the department's joint warfighting functions, I do not wish to add a separate service that would likely present a narrower and even parochial approach to space operations", Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told Congressman Michael Turner in a letter last July. He dubbed this theoretical new branch the "Space Force", noting that such a new agency could become reality soon. "Then I said, "what a great idea", maybe we'll have to do that", he told the servicemen.

It was unclear whether The Donald was joking about the idea of "Space Force".

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

The Air Force didn't want it and even the White House objected to the idea at the time, saying it would create more bureaucracy.
