Trump announces 6th branch of the military: The U.S. Space Force
The U.S. military will soon add an additional service to its roaster. The new lineup will be:
Amy, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and... The U.S. Space Force.
Washington Post reports, "A bipartisan budget agreement for 2020 will see the creation of a new branch of the military specifically oriented towards space. The United States Space Force will be the first new service branch in more than 60 years, tasked to ensure America’s freedom to operate in outer space—or take space away from somebody else."
See below for a video of President Trump announcing the launch the new military branch, released by The Guardian, December 2019.
Trump goes on to say, "Space is the world's newest war fighting domain. Amid grave threats to our national security, American superiority in space is absolutely vital."
