Trump envisions space force someday in military

While visiting California on Tuesday for the first time since he was elected president, Donald Trump made a comment about the need for a new military arm: the "Space Force". We have the Army, the Navy.

He told an audience of Marine Corps at Air Station Miramar in San Diego: "Space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air, and sea". "We have the Air Force, we'll have the Space Force", he said.

After extensive politicking the US Congress passed the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act in November.

"At a time when we are trying to integrate the department's joint warfighting functions, I do not wish to add a separate service that would likely present a narrower and even parochial approach to space operations", Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told Congressman Michael Turner in a letter last July. "And then I said 'What a great idea".

"We should have a new force called the Space Force", he said, noting how the plan started as a joke before eventually becoming a very real possibility. "We'll call it the space force.' Not really serious", he said, reportedly to mixed laughter.

"From the very beginning, many of our astronauts have been soldiers and airmen, coast guard men and marines". Maybe we'll have to do that'. Trump also made extensive comments about space and the possibility that the United States will need a "space force" to fight enemies that threaten USA access to space.

The agreement states that any member state that launches a "space object" has jurisdiction over it, and is also liable for damages it causes.
