Trump pushes for new 'space force'

"We should have a new force called the Space Force", Trump said to troops at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego.

But that didn't stop President Trump for advocating for a "Space Force" today. "We may even have a Space Force". "We have the army, the navy ..." There is already an Air Force Space Command with a mission "to provide resilient and affordable space and cyberspace capabilities for the Joint Force and the Nation".

"We should have a new force called the Space Force", Trump said Tuesday.

The idea was initially floated past year when the House Armed Service Committee, led by Republican Chairman Mike Rogers and Ranking Member Democrat Jim Cooper, proposed a new branch of the military called the US Space Corps.

After Trump renewed the "space force" proposal, Twitter completely roasted him.

Donald Trump has proposed a new brand of armed forces - which he's dubbed the "space force".

Trump insinuated that the idea started off as joke, but that he might seriously be considering it.

Defense Secretary James Mattis even took the rare step of writing a letter supporting an amendment to remove the Space Corps from the House's version of policy bill earlier this year. "And I was not really serious, and then I said what a great idea, maybe we'll have to do that".

Mr Trump, who earlier fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, said he'd originally coined the term "Space Force" as a joke while discussing U.S. government spending, and private investment, in space. The goal was for the United States to stay ahead of rivals like Russian Federation and China, which are advancing in space-related military operations.

It's not entirely clear what he means by "develop another one".
