Space Force will be awesome! Such forward thinking and innovative direction from our President.

Yeah ! Space Force ! To absurdity and beyond !

Cadet Bone Spurs becomes Space Cadet Bone Spurs.

Does the space force have their own theme music?

Word has it Trump is going to pull the money for his new Space Force from the money he pulled for The Wall which he pulled from the disaster funds and from some Pentagon programs.

He got his tax cut and is now running trillion dollar deficits. He doesn't have the money nor a source for all his spending. But we already knew what he was like. He did the same thing when he was in business: Bankruptcy King of Debt Donald J. Trump.

it must be vetted and approved by Congress. Lawmakers and defense officials have reacted with skepticism, wary of the cost and added bureaucracy.

Maybe Trump will declare another national emergency if he doesn't get his way.

Almost as forward thinking and innovative as the Trump Taj Mahal.

Yas, he's so smurt. Like all his Trumpy fan base. ;)

Its kind of cute, though. Signing things is basically the only thing chump can do without screwing up.

But its okay for China and Russia to have their Space Force, eh?

How come you guys aren't critical and dismissive of their program?

I'm not Chinese, or Russian. I don't give 2 sheets what they do with their money. Why should we be critical or dismissive of their programs? Doesn't affect the deficit in America and it certainly doesn't affect the rest of the world, although Trump would try to argue so with no evidence. There are already plenty of satellites strapped with missiles in the sky, the government is worried about losing to privatized space exploration and wants their piece before its too late. Where is your argument, man? Try a little harder.

It’s the John Williams, “March of the Socialists.”

Always amazing to me how Democrats and liberals have a very short memory about everything.

You've heard of Ming the Merciless - get ready for Trump the Terrible....

Really great idea by Trump, thinking “outside the box”. I am puzzled by negative commenters. If Space Force prevents communist China from claiming/colonizing planets, moon, Sun etc, then surely its a good thing?

Every boy will now grow up wanting to be a Space Commander!

...assert US dominance in orbit.

Star Wars season 1.

Is there a good reason why the US has to be dominant everywhere?

So far US dominance has brought nothing but misery around the world.

What's the plan? Shooting the little green men or the taller gray ones?
