US President Donald Trump has allocated $738 billion for the recruitment and training of Space Force to “maintain American dominance in space”.
A historic signature. With an act signed on December 22, 2019, the President of the United States of America Donald Trump founded the USA Space Force, the first “space army” in the world. The Tycoon has allocated an annual budget of $738 billion for the recruitment of over 16,000 men for the U.S. Space Forces. In addition to the Army (Army), Navy (Navy), Air Force (Air Force), Navy (Marine) and Coast Guard (Coast Guard), the U.S. will soon be able to count on Special Forces dedicated to the defense of American dominance in space. “Space is the new world domination of combat in war,” Trump said during the signing ceremony of the National Defense Authorization Act at Andrews Base (Washington). Much of Trump’s $738 billion will be used to fund research projects, studies and innovative prototypes in the field of aerospace engineering.
USA Space Forces: Trump’s Space Army
“Our resilience based on space capabilities has grown enormously and today space has become a battlefield for its domination. Maintaining American dominance in space is now the mission of the United States space forces,” stressed Mark Esper, Secretary of Defense for the Trump government. Air Force Secretary Barbara Barrett was also on the same line: “US space forces will protect American national interests with their special focus on space. The United States has the best space acumen in the world”. The head of the US Space Force will be General Jay Raymond. “By establishing the US Space Forces,” he said, “we are elevating space commensurate with its importance to our national security interests and those of our partners and allies. Our main focus will be training, research and technological innovation: only in this way will it be possible to defend and increase American dominance in space”.
