Trump: We’re ‘Seriously Thinking’ of a Sixth Military Branch Called the ‘Space Force’

‘This is perhaps because we’re getting very big in space’

EXCERPT:

TRUMP: "You will be courageous members of the long gray line that stretches back to the earliest days of our republic. You will be part of the 5 proud branches of the United States Armed Forces: Army, Navy,‎ Marines, Air Force, and the Coast Guard. And we're actually thinking of a sixth, and that would be the space force. Does that make sense? The Space Force, gentlemen. You probably haven't even heard that. I'm just telling you now. This is perhaps because we're getting very big in space, both militarily and for other reasons. And we are seriously thinking of the space force. And you'll join the greatest force for peace and justice the world has ever known. You will keep us safe, you will keep us strong, you will keep us free. And thank you for your service and go army. I'll be watching you coach. I'll be watching you next year. I really believe that from what I'm hearing this team could go on and have another incredible season. You are a special group of people and it's an honor to have you at the White House."
