MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU, TRUMP’S SPACE MARK
President Trump is planning to make a big mark in history by starting a new branch of the Military, the Space Force. The President and Vice President have both voiced their support for this new branch that is supposed to protect the US from a “galaxy far, far, away”. Putting all the space jokes aside, making a new branch of the military would leave a mark in the presidency of Donald Trump like no other. The last branch was the Air Force which was established in 1947, so adding a new branch would be a major step. President Trump first announced his idea of this force on June 18th, 2018, by saying the following, “ I am here by directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon, to immediately lead the process necessary to establish a Space Force as the Sixth Branch of the armed forces ….We are also modernizing out of date space regulations, that haven’t been changed in many years.”. As always, when the President feels strongly on an issue he takes to social media, simply saying, “Space Force all the way!”. The Vice President has also spoken on this topic an array of times saying, “Just as we’ve done in ages past, the United States will meet the emerging threats on this new battlefield,” he said in a speech at the Pentagon. “The time has come to establish the United States Space Force.”. The Truth Gazette fully supports President Trump’s decision on the new Sixth Branch of the Military, the Space Force!
