Bulgaria Trump Pushes for New'Space Force

America should create its own separate military space force, President Donald Trump mentioned in an offhand remark Tuesday that would change the course of USA space policy. "We have the army, the navy".

"My new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air and sea", declared Trump. We have the Air Force.

The idea was initially floated previous 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. That I can tell you. "Maybe we'll have to do that".

"That's unacceptable that we have allowed that to happen, particularly in a day and age when it is essential to have those space capabilities to fight and win wars", he said.

Republican congressman Mike Rogers, who proposed the idea, argued that the Air Force was prioritising its fighter jets over space, and a dedicated service was needed to stay ahead of China and Russian Federation in what was described as the next frontier of warfare.

While Trump was nearly jokingly floating the idea, there has always been a military aspect to the space race.

Last week, Trump spoke of a special future USA mission to Mars.

Trump said at first he wasn't serious when he floated the concept, but "then I said what a great idea, maybe we'll have to do that".

Trump released his budget request in mid-February in which his administration sought to end NASA funding for the International Space Station by 2025.

It says the Air Force has to move toward creating a space defense unit within itself called the Space Corps.
