Donald Trump fired Rex Tillerson capping months of speculation the secretary of state was on the verge of being pushed out

In a speech to personnel at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego on Tuesday, Trump suggested a new military branch that would, presumably, go to infinity and beyond.

"The comic adventures that befall a crew of astronauts assigned to a remote military space station", IMDb notes of Space Force. "We'll have the space force". "We have the army, the navy ..."

But, before the United States begins building the super bomber, the air force will carry out a "critical design review" to see how it can better implement the tech. We'll have the space force.

Mourinho hits back at De Boer over Rashford comments
Rashford has made 93 appearances since Mourinho took over from Van Gaal in 2016. "If you go to his numbers and how many games he played with me".

The problem is Trump's administration actively opposed the idea of a Space Force previous year.

Donald Trump mused to an audience of Marines about launching an extraterrestrial branch of the military. That I can tell you.

While Trump was nearly jokingly floating the idea, there has always been a military aspect to the space race.

PM launches campaign to eradicate TB by 2025
The summit is hosted by Government of India, WHO South East Asia Regional Office (SEARO) and Stop TB Partnership. The main aim of the summit is to review ongoing efforts and accelerate action toward the "End TB by 2025" goal.

Trump's own defence secretary and air force secretary argued vociferously against it when members of Congress pushed it a year ago, Sean O'Keefe, who was both NASA administrator and navy secretary under president George W. Bush, told the Associated Press.

It was not entirely clear if Trump was joking about the idea or being serious, because he then referenced the "fake news" media writing stories about the Space Force.

Since taking office, Trump has frequently touted his support for the USA military and placed high-ranking generals in top White House and cabinet posts. (Also, the U.S. is part of an global treaty that prohibits countries from putting nukes into space.) What Trump seems to be referring to is the Space Corps with a new name. It's unclear if Trump's Space Force would be any similar to what the Space Crops was meant to be.
