Trump Wants Space Force by 2020

President Donald Trump’s administration on Thursday announced an ambitious plan to usher in a new “Space Force” as the sixth branch of the military by 2020, but the proposal was scorned by opponents and may struggle to get liftoff in a divided Congress. Trump has strongly championed the idea of creating a space-focused military service with the same stature as the Air Force and the Army, turning his dreams of a “Space Force” into a rallying cry for supporters at political events. His 2020 reelection campaign sent a fundraising email on Thursday asking supporters to vote on their favorite Space Force logo for future Trump campaign merchandise, offering a choice of six. U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, in an address at the Pentagon, described the Space Force as “an idea whose time has come.”

I honestly think people would rather have cheaper fuel prices with those dollars....Than to get in a race to Mars with Bezos.

There are only a handful of nations that have been able to reach space.  The United States and Russia continue to dominate the space race and now private American companies are doing it.
