Trump Campaign Asks Supporters to Choose Space Force Logo

Donald Trump's Space Force as an actual sixth branch of the USA military faces numerous bureaucratic and political obstacles.

President Trump is going back to his base over space - as in his proposed Space Force, and wants his MAGA camp to vote on their favorite logo. and then buy it.

They said the Pentagon report was the start of a "multi-year process that we think will result in a safer, stronger America".

Deborah James, who served as Air Force secretary for the final three years of the Obama administration, estimated it would be five to 10 years before a separate service would be fully formed.

"Now the time has come to write the next great chapter in the history of our armed forces, to prepare for the next battlefield where America's best and bravest will be called to deter and defeat a new generation of threats to our people, to our nation", Pence said.

Pence said the new agency would help the Department of Defense "break free from ineffective and duplicative bureaucratic structures".

"We have been warning for years of the need to protect our space assets and to develop more capable space systems", the lawmakers said in a joint statement.

They had very few three-pointers to speak of; in other words, they were the opposite of what the NBA is supposed to be today. In fact, not only do they have deficiencies, but they do not even have the tools or resources to resolve those deficiencies.

Pence cited new threats the U.S. faces in space, particularly from Russian Federation and China. In 2007, China fired a missile to destroy an aged weather satellite, demonstrating in a dramatic fashion its ability to deploy anti-satellite weapons. "In fact, China claimed to have made its first successful test of a hypersonic vehicle just last week".

"Peace only comes through strength", Pence said. Air Force officials and national security experts have spoken out against the creation of a separate Space Force.

The report to be released today represents a critical step toward establishing the Space Force, he said.

"Our nation's armed forces have always been the vanguard of advancing American leadership here on Earth and beyond", Pence said. For example, Russian Federation and China are pursuing anti-satellite weapons, including lasers, to "reduce USA military effectiveness".

One of the key functions of the new branch would be to aid U.S. forces on the ground and the air force, giving them combat superiority. Pence said the Department of Defense will reveal a more detailed report later today.

"We must have American dominance in space, and so we will", Pence said in his speech at the Pentagon. In June, Trump called for the new branch to be created, despite resistance from the Air Force, which now oversees military space programs.

Any proposal to create a new service would need approval by Congress, where the ambitious proposal might never leave the launch pad because of opposition by Democrats and fiscal hawks in the GOP.
