All you need to know about Trump's Space Force

Dodge said it would "free up the Air Force to focus on what it does best", as the new branch addressed issues unique to space.

Those who support creating a new branch of the military often point to China's and Russia's tests of anti-satellite missiles and moves to create their own space forces as evidence of the need for the new service.

In June, President Trump said that it wasn't enough for the U.S.to have a presence in space.

Jim Carrey has slammed Donald Trump's plans for a Space Force with a new cartoon. This means we won't be seeing any real progress toward the sixth branch of the military until 2019, when Congress, along with the Trump administration, can begin exploring new possibilities. The Space Force swill meet "the rising security threats our nation faces in space today and in the future", Pence said.

President Trump didn't waste any time in trying to raise additional campaign dollars on the back of the newly announced U.S. Space Force. He added, "America will always seek peace, in space as on the Earth". The Pentagon first will establish a Space Command to oversee and coordinate space operations and a Space Development Agency to accelerate the development and fielding of space technologies for the military.

"We are in complete alignment with the President's concerned about protecting our assets in space", said the U.S. Defence Secretary. "Creating a new branch of the military is not a simple process", Pence said during his speech. But history proves that peace only comes through strength.

The United States is a signatory to the 1967 Space Treaty, which prohibits the stockpiling of weapons of mass destruction in space and authorizes the colonization of the Moon and other celestial bodies exclusively for the objective of peaceful. It also will build up larger numbers of servicemen and servicewomen with expertise in space operations.

This hasn't stopped President Pence from outlining specifics of the new military force. It will be a first new branch of the American military since 1947. "As challenges arise and deadlines approach, there must be someone in charge who can execute, hold others accountable, and be responsible for the results".

WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump signed an nearly $750 billion defense spending bill Monday, while vowing a new "Space Force" would give America dominance over rivals in China and elsewhere.
