Trump's Call For A 'Space Force' Makes Him The Laughingstock Of The Galaxy
“Space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air and sea,” Trump said on Tuesday at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. “We may even gain a Space Force, develop another one, Space Force. We gain the Air Force, we’ll gain the Space Force.”
At first, Trump said he wasn’t serious approximately the notion.
“Then I said, ‘What a much belief!’ perhaps, possibly we’ll gain to achieve that,’” Trump said. “So judge of that: Space Force, because we are spending a lot and we gain a lot of private money coming in, tremendous.”
He also described the U.S. military as “vital to ensuring America continues to lead the way into the stars.”
For the moment, however, his belief for a Space Force led to much laughter on Twitter:
I went into a screening to see Isle of Dogs. I came out and we now gain a Space Army

Of course Trump wants to create a Space Force. He doesn’t want any kind of alien entering the U.S. “They’re bringing laser swords, they’re bringing pod people, they’re face huggers and some of them I’m certain are fine additional terrestrials.” #spaceforce

Trump: “I wanna wage war with Space.”
Cabinet: “But why tho”
Trump: “gain you seen the documentaries lately approximately space? The one with label Hamill?”
Cabinet: “…Sir that’s Star Wars.”
Trump: “See, the war has already started!” #SpaceForce

Right! He saw them accomplish it on Spaceballs and Galaxy Quest, which are at least as fact based as Fox & Friends.
