Trump spoke about the goals of the US space forces created by him

American President Donald Trump decided to create the US Space Force, as he feared the dominance of Russia and China in space. The President of the United States told about this on the air of the Fox News channel.


Talking about the achievements of the White House administration during his presidency, Trump said that one of them was the creation of space forces. The decision was made out of fears that Russia and China would become key players in space, pushing the United States away.

Another achievement of ours is the US Space Force. I didn’t even talk about it during the election campaign. Later, when I became president, I realized that we need this, since China and Russia were going to play a dominant role in space.

Trump boasted.

According to the American leader, after the creation of space forces, the dominant role in space passed to the United States, which Moscow and Beijing do not like very much.

Now we will play a dominant role. They are not very happy that we created the Cosmic Forces

- he stressed.

The US Space Force officially appeared on December 20, 2019 after Trump signed a decree on their creation. They became the sixth branch of the US military and the first to be created since 1947, when the current structure of the Pentagon was approved.

    The landing party decided to land on the moon. Defend the suburban areas of the Americans from UFOs with green men. Suddenly they are already there ...

      Alas, but let's be frank ... Since people divide the Earth into parts and constantly fight, will it not be the same with space? No, well, there was hope, of course, but no .... People are people. If Trump had not created, some other president would have created. Moreover, for military purposes, space has already been used in one way or another for a long time.

      Ordinary American advertising .. They transferred everything from the old command space of operations to the new and loudly named it. We have already seen Star Wars.

          We at least honestly named the Air and Space Forces, that is, aviation and space - it is clear: planes, satellites, missiles, radars. The Americans, in their own way ... how else did they not call themselves spacemarines?

      But in the Russian Federation, there are military space forces, but which of space technology there is absolutely incomprehensible, because there is no Klingon fighter, no star cruiser Galaktika, no military bases on other planets, but there are cosmic forces.

    To sign is not to create, but the impression that he himself, alone created. In general, I think that he did not even suspect about such forces, as the warriors convinced him, apparently somewhere he was interested in commercial opportunities. Funds from the budget will flow.

        They know how to self-irony there are stupid generals, money-hungry businessmen, but the country is positive, in the Russian Federation they don't know how to shoot like that, because of the dominance of liberals.

    Has he given a new name to the existing Air Force units, has something essentially changed? space fighter built? or even a death star? Or is it just banal that part of the top of the generals has spun off and the village on a separate from the Air Force drank the budget of the American? great achievement :)

      Yes, it is called X37 in space for 10 years already, while they call it an orbital plane. Dream Chaser with a small outpost has already been ordered. https://topwar.ru/173165-pentagon-zakazal-razrabotku-neobitaemogo-orbitalnogo-forposta-uoo.html

        both the micro-shuttle and the other existed without a "new name" and without funding under a new name. so the creation of these things has nothing to do with the new signboard.

      SOI 2 project launched. Technically, they already have everything, now they will justify the need to allocate money to the population and the Congress. I read comments on Thedrive there, some American uryakly have already ignited panic, others demand complete domination in space over Russia and China.

    Now we will play a dominant role.

    Genius, not otherwise. With a stroke of a pen, he brought the United States to the fore.
    In essence: He created a type of troops with a new name and a beautiful logo, transferred to them part of the property and functions of the Air Force, NASA and other offices adjacent to space. Nothing new has appeared there, no new functions have been introduced, but a new structure has been created with a staff of 16 thousand people, for which a total budget of 5 billion dollars is allocated for 13 years.
    Now imagine how we would have yelled for such a waste of funds ...

      It's not a whim. Space will be actively militarized. There are already military satellites and orbital aircraft, outposts have already been ordered with a new orbital aircraft, military inhabited and non-inhabited stations are on the way.

        military inhabited and non-inhabited stations on the way.

        In 15-20 years not earlier. No one has even thought about what functions military orbital stations will perform.
        And what do you mean by an orbital plane and an outpost? I have not heard of this.

          Much earlier.
          The Starlink system has already been launched with almost 600 satellites or 160 tons into orbit. and one company started it.

          And now imagine that these satellites will be supplied (or may already have) systems for earth remote sensing (DZZ) and systems for RTR. and now we get reconnaissance of almost all possible formats over the territory of another state 24/7.

        Military satellites and orbital aircraft already exist

        The satellite does not pull on space forces, for example, the star cruiser "Galaktika" has autonomy of 3 years, unlimited range, has a warp engine and in-system ionics, has 2 links of space fighters, laser and plasma cannons, feel the difference, this is a unit of space forces, true from the movie ... A tin can with bolts and microcircuits dangling in orbit is not troops.
