Minute 12 – “Weaponry like we’ve never had before or sent before – they’ll be sent all over the world.”
We’ve increased investment in hypersonic weapon systems by 50%. And we’re accelerating development of hypersonic system that can fly five times the speed of sound. That’s pretty quick. In space, the United States is going to do Colonel Glen proud. We are finally going to lead again. You see what’s happening.? You see the rockets going up left and right. You haven’t see that for a long time. Very soon we’re going to Mars. You wouldn’t have been going to Mars if my opponent won. You wouldn’t even been thinking about it.
A new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war fighting domain just like the land, air and sea. We may even have a Space Force – develop another one. Space Force. We have the Air Force, we will have the Space Force.
We have the Army, the Navy. You know I was saying it the other day because we’re doing the tremendous amount of work in space. I said maybe we need a new force. We’ll call it the Space Force. And I was not really serious and then I said “What a great idea.” Maybe we will have to do it. That could happen. That could be the big breaking story. Look at all those people back there – ah, that fake news! They know – they understand.
Think of that – Space Force. Because we’re spending a lot and we have a lot of private money coming in. Tremendous! You saw what happened the other day – tremendous success. From the very beginning many of our astronauts have been soldiers, or sailors, airmen, Coast Guardsmen, and Marines. And our service members will be vital to ensuring America continues to lead the way into the Stars. We’re gonna lead the way in space. We’re way way behind but we’re catching up fast. So fast that no one believes it.
