Donald Trump suggests USA may need to create a 'space force'

President Donald Trump arrives speaks to service members at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar Tuesday

While visiting California on Tuesday for the first time since he was elected president, Donald Trump made a comment about the need for a new military arm: the "Space Force".

Donald Trump mused to an audience of Marines about launching an extraterrestrial branch of the military. "We have the army, the navy".

The 1967 "Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, Including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies" (real title!), sought to prevent "a new form of colonial competition" in space, which a "Space Force" sounds like it would be.

Prosecutor seeks death for Florida gunman
Prosecutors in Florida have said they will seek the death penalty for Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz . His attorneys also offered to plead guilty in exchange for a life sentence.

Republican Representative Mike Rogers told a February 28 conference at the Center for Strategic and International Studies that a separate space corps could be carved out from the air force within "three to five years".

But that didn't stop President Trump for advocating for a "Space Force" today.

He added: "Space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air, and sea". "I think he likes what you do better than what he does, but he's doing a great job".

"We will call it the space force", President Trump proclaimed.

. "We will have a Space Force".

Trump insinuated that the idea started off as joke, but that he might seriously be considering it.

"We should have a new force called the Space Force", Trump said Tuesday. Vice President Mike Pence cited America's "prosperity, security and identity" in describing the initiative past year, noting that Russian Federation was eclipsing America beyond Earth's atmosphere and cautioning that both Russian Federation and China were formulating technology that could interfere with U.S. satellites. It's unclear if Trump's Space Force would be any similar to what the Space Crops was meant to be.

Amazon recalls six AmazonBasics power banks over fire concerns
Amazon has today recalled six different models of its AmazonBasics portable power banks, including a total of 260,000 units. Amazon is now sending out emails to customers who purchased these power bans to inform them of the recall.

The Space Corps language was removed from the final version of the National Defense Authorization Act previous year. But it seems like Trump is trying to resurrect an idea that his administration originally didn't want.
