Trump: "Space Is A War-Fighting Domain, Just Like The Land, Air, And Sea"

|

President Trump told Marines that he wants the military to create a new "space force" that would be added to the triad of land, air, and sea. Trump addressed troops at the Miramar Marine Corps Air Station near San Diego on Tuesday during a swing through California that included looking at border wall prototypes.

"My new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air, and sea," Trump told the Marines. "We may even have a Space Force -- develop another one; Space Force. We have the Air Force; we'll have the Space Force. We have the Army, the Navy."

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Very soon we are going to Mars. You wouldn't have been going to Mars if my opponent won, that I can tell you. You wouldn't even be thinking about it. Wouldn't be thinking about it.



(APPLAUSE)

My new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air, and sea. We may even have a Space Force -- develop another one; Space Force. We have the Air Force; we'll have the Space Force. We have the Army, the Navy.

You know, I was saying it the other day, because we are doing a tremendous amount of work in space. I said maybe we need a new force. We'll call it Space Force. And I was not really serious. Then I said what a great idea. Maybe we'll have to do that. That could happen. That could be the big breaking story.

Look at all those people back there. Look at them. Oh, that fake news.

(APPLAUSE)

They know. They understand. TRUMP: So think of that, space force, because we're spending a lot and we have a lot of private money coming in. Tremendous, you saw what happened the other day, and tremendous success.
