President Trump: U.S. Military Will Soon Have a ‘Space Force’ to Wage War Beyond Planet Earth (Video)

President Trump is spacing out.

The commander-in-chief doesn’t think the U.S. military is large enough — so he announced during a press conference Tuesday that it will expand beyond planet Earth via a “space force.” 

“Space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air and sea,” Trump told a crowd of Marines at the Miramar military base in California. “We have the air force. We will have a space force…We will call it the ‘space force.’”

Trump didn’t make clear what shape this “space force” might take and what adversaries it would confront. A Pentagon spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment.

Trump touted his proposed military addition as the next “big breaking story.”

“Look at all those people back there. Look at that. Oh, that fake news,” Trump said, gesticulating at the reporters present. “They know, they understand. Think of that. Space force!”

But the idea of a new military branch centered on the cosmos is in fact far from a Trump original.

For decades, proponents and critics have debated adding a dedicated “Space Corps,” which would absorb the Air Force Space Command’s current missions.

Rep. Mike Rogers(R-Ala.) proposed the idea in last year’s defense spending bill, but Defense Secretary James Mattis and others at the Pentagon opposed it.

The futuristic-sounding force was left out of the final version of the spending bill.

Rogers argued that a dedicated service was needed to stay ahead of China and Russia in what some see as the next frontier of warfare.

Trump’s proposed federal budget, released last month, asked Congress to earmark a whopping $716 billion for defense spending, a 13% increase from 2017.

    Spacing out you say. Trump knows we already have a space force and is simply preparing the people for the announcement sometime in the future.
