Trump wants the USA military to have a 'space force'

But the quick details that Trump offered at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar seemed to mirror an existing House plan to create a "Space Corps". But he is right that the Air Force's operations are reliant on space.

The Congressional Strategic Forces Subcommittee proposed such a branch of military a year ago in July.

Star Wars become a reality under President Trump.

The president's words drew quick praise from Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Ala., who had proposed a Space Corps a year ago to fix what he called a "broken" national security space structure. The US military depends on space for everything from communications to navigation. "We owe both to the public, and it is vitally important for the public to understand what we are doing on their behalf and with their tax dollars".

The idea was finally dropped from the Pentagon's funding bill by the end of previous year, but it retains some support in Congress, where advocates say the USA is facing significant strategic vulnerabilities in the face of Russian and Chinese pushes into space warfare.

Trump commented Tuesday in San Diego after viewing prototypes for the border wall. He said he first suggested a space force in a meeting with advisors.

Rival powers like Russian Federation and China have already formed their own independent military space forces, while U.S. Space Command remains largely under the control of the Air Force. We'll build a Space Force.' And I was not really serious.

But, before the USA begins building the super bomber, the air force will carry out a "critical design review" to see how it can better implement the tech. Instead, the 2018 NDAA directed for a study of the Space Corps proposal, which is due in December. Trump fired his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Twitter Tuesday morning, nominating CIA Director Mike Pompeo to replace him, and career CIA official Gina Haspel to replace Pompeo.

Beyond limiting the Air Force's interactions with journalists, the new guidelines pose new restrictions on public appearances such as air show demonstrations, trade shows, industry conferences and think tank events, which can move forward if authorized by SAF/PA's engagement division. "We have the Air Force, we'll have the space force".

"The Air Force will no longer be able to treat space as a third-order priority after fighter jets and bombers", Rep. Mike Rogers, Republican from MI and Strategic Forces Subcommittee chairman, said in a statement at the time. "We're gonna lead the way in space".

Sitting beside the secretary, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein said he was "excited by the dialogue".

On Wednesday, Rogers said he was pleased to hear it. He said he hopes that "something very positive" will come of his planned talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

"I don't know what the president meant", he said.

"We must make this concept operational for all domain warfighting throughout the DoD".
