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 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.
