Donald Trump’s ‘Space Force’ proposal is making headlines.
Fortunately, rising socialist star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had the perfect response for him on Twitter.
On 9 August, US Vice-President Mike Pence announced that the Trump administration will submit to congress a bill to establish a ‘Space Force’. This new branch of the military would be dedicated solely to military operations in space. Pence said he hopes the program will be operational by 2020. He also provided an operational cost estimate of roughly $8bn per year.
