President Trump delivers remarks to Marines in California

Donald Trump speaks with marines

How about the Space Force instead?

On a day filled with White House staffing shake-ups, the president remained mostly on-script in his 25-minute remarks, commenting on the positive developments with North Korea and the potential for expanding the U.S. Space program. "We have the army, the navy ..."

"So think of that, Space Force", Trump continued. "We are spending a lot and we have a lot of private money coming in, tremendous".

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".

Many in the military are resistant to the idea of a new space arm, with chief of US Strategic Command, Air Force General John Hyten, suggesting last November that while reform to eliminate bureaucracy is necessary to stay ahead of the Russians and Chinese, the idea of a Space Corps is wholly unnecessary.

The problem is Trump's administration actively opposed the idea of a Space Force a year ago. "Then I said, "what a great idea", maybe we'll have to do that", he told the servicemen.

Initially, Trump explained, he'd proposed the idea as a joke. Maybe we'll have to do that'. But the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act that passed last November actually banned it.

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

It says the Air Force has to move toward creating a space defense unit within itself called the Space Corps. It's unclear if Trump's Space Force would be any similar to what the Space Crops was meant to be.
