Space Force is a Go

On Monday speaking at the National Space council meeting President Trump has directed the Pentagon to create a 6th branch of the military called Space Force.

The announcement via the posted tweet

“In defending America, it is not enough to merely have an American presence in space, we must have American dominance in space. I’m hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the armed forces. That’s a big statement. We are going to have the Air Force and we are going to have the Space Force, separate but equal.”

This is the first official directive issued in regards to Space Force by President Trump, but not the first time he has mentioned his desire for a 6th branch of the military called “Space Force.”
