Trump's Suggestion of "Space Force" Becomes Instant Meme

Trump's Suggestion of

In a speech delivered to US Marines today in San Diego, President Donald Trump declared support for the United States developing a new space-based branch of the military, called the "Space Force".

"And you know, we have General Kelly here - four star and he's doing a great job in Washington", he said, pausing for applause.

In no time, social media was mocking the president's comment and, of course, began spewing out memes. And some said a military space force may make it harder to keep Earth's orbit a place of peace.

The only thing better than its glorious dated theme song is that the 30-minute program co-starred a young, dashing Fred Willard as Capt. Thomas Woods. "We have the Air Force, we'll have the Space Force", he said.

Trump will be in Los Angeles later in the evening for a private fundraiser near, but not in, Beverly Hills. We'll have the space force. The idea was finally dropped from the Pentagon's funding bill by the end of past 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.

Cincinnati Bengals reportedly trade for OT Cordy Glenn from Buffalo Bills
Glenn played just five games previous year because of foot and ankle problems, so the Bills know how to play without him. It resulted in him signing a five-year, $65 million contract with the team during the 2016 off-season.

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".

"From the very beginning, many of our astronauts have been soldiers and airmen, coast guard men and marines".

Trump's own defense secretary and Air Force secretary argued vociferously against it when members of Congress pushed it previous year, O'Keefe said. But he may be thinking of the National Defense Authorization Act that he signed into law in December.

His idea was opposed by Pentagon leaders and the White House, who argued the plan was premature and needed more study.
