U.S. should have a 'space force'

Watch: Trump speaks at military base in California

President Donald Trump says the USA should create a military "Space Force" to defend United States interests outside the earth's atmosphere.

The idea was floated Tuesday during his visit to the Miramar military base in San Diego. "We have the Air Force, we'll have the Space Force", he said. "We may even have a Space Force".

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.

"At a time when we are trying to integrate the department's joint warfighting functions, I do not wish to add a separate service that would likely present a narrower and even parochial approach to space operations", Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told Congressman Michael Turner in a letter last July.

The main objective of the president's visit to San Diego was to look over proposals for his massive border-wall campaign promise. "We have the Army, the Navy".

United Airlines apologise after dog dies in overhead locker during flight
The French bulldog was traveling Monday with its owner and her children from Houston to NY . United Airlines provided NBC 5 with a statement, expressing regret for the incident.

"You know, I was saying it the other day because we are doing a tremendous amount of work in space", he told the group of U.S. Marines.

The President's remarks come after a Republican plan to create a "Space Corps" as part of the Air Force was dropped from the National Defence Authorisation Act in November.

He says his idea of a new space force had started as an off-the-cuff comment, but he decided it was a great idea.

According to Gizmodo, despite Trump taking full credit for the suggestion, military leaders past year said space is the next war frontier (as they were requesting funding). Maybe we'll have to do that'. He said he mentioned it offhandedly during a discussion about space defense, but that some in his administration thought it was a good idea.
