Washington, D.C.: Candidate Donald Trump recognized that America has tremendous technological interests in space including key communications, GPS, and weather satellites. He also recognized that we had nearly zero defense for those interests in the rapidly expanding space age.
“These two facts no one disputes: our world is increasingly dangerous and space technology is rapidly increasing,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “President Trump knows that we must defend American interests in this new space age and he took decisive action to do so by establishing the U.S. Space Force — the sixth branch of our U.S. Armed Forces. President Ronald Reagan’s opponents mocked his Strategic Defense Initiative but he was a forward thinker who put the safety of Americans first. Future generations will thank President Trump for his strategic, far-thinking vision for the protection of American interests beyond Earth’s atmosphere. Promise made, promise kept.”
President Donald Trump made many significant promises to the American people. During the first three and a half years of his administration he has delivered. The radical left hates this agenda and the Fake News won’t cover it, but voters need to be educated before they go to the polls in November.
