Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump said Tues­day he wants the US mil­i­tary to create a new “space force,” adding to the Pen­tagon’s cur­rent ground, navy and air forces.

Trump told troops at the Mi­ra­mar Marine Corps Air Sta­tion near San Diego that the new group would be able to en­cap­su­late the “tremen­dous amount” of work the mil­i­tary and gov­ern­ment are do­ing in space-re­lated de­fense.

“My new na­tional strat­egy for space rec­og­nizes that space is a warfight­ing do­main, just like the land, air and sea,” Trump said.

“We may even have a space force ... We have the air force, we’ll have the space force, we’ll have the army, the navy. (AFP)
