US President Donald Trump Officially Confirms Funding for US Space Force to Maintain American Superiority

  • The US President Donald Trump has officially announced funding a Pentagon Force that focuses on the “the world's newest war-fighting domain” called the US Space Force. This new military service, coming under the US Air Force, is regarded as “absolutely vital”. The US President Trump while officially announcing funding for the Pentagon Force at an army base near Washington said that “amid grave threats to our national security, American superiority in space is absolutely vital”. He went on to say that “the Space Force will help us deter aggression and control the ultimate high ground”. The funding allocation for the project has been confirmed while the US President signed the annual US military budget of US$738 billion. Reports say that the celebrated US Space Force has been allocated with US$40 million funding in the first year. While the US military chiefs believe that it has become necessary to combat the advancements made in the military final frontier, Russia's President Vladimir Putin had said earlier in December that the US expansion in space is posing a threat to the interests of Russia and it needs a response from them.
