  • President Donald Trump arrives speaks to service members at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar Tuesday

President Donald Trump's visit to California has proved fruitful for the Twitter jokes economy after a possibly (more than likely) ad-libbed speech to Marines in San Diego led to his reveal of a potential "Space Force".

Trump was speaking Tuesday about his administration's investments in space exploration to members of the military when he said that space is becoming a "war-fighting domain". "We may even have a Space Force". "We have the army, the navy ..."

"We should have a new force called the Space Force", Trump said to troops at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego.

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

Republican Representative Mike Rogers told a February 28 conference at the Center for Strategic and International Studies that a separate space corps could be carved out from the air force within "three to five years". We'll have the space force.

The President said the idea of an out-of-this-world battle squad started as a joke, before he warmed to the idea.

The car-sharing service project could mark another step forward in GM's transition from vehicle manufacturer to mobility provider. The nation's largest automaker also plans to debut a self-driving Chevrolet Bolt without a steering wheel or pedals by 2019.


Despite Trump's declared support of the idea, it is unclear how much he knows of the progress already made towards his stated goals.

"I said 'maybe we need a new force".

He failed to mention the Coast Guard or the Marines.

Can Donald Trump fight wars in outer space?

Trump suggested that when he first thought of creating a Space Force, he wasn't really serious. Maybe we'll have to do that'.

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