President Trump is serious about his proposed new Space Force. He has called on his supporters to vote for the Space Force logo.
Just after Vice President Mike Pence went over the administration's intentions of creating the Space Force, a mass email was sent out for the Trump campaign to vote on the Space Force logo.
“President Trump wants a SPACE FORCE- a ground breaking endeavor for the future of America and the final frontier,” the email, signed by Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale, said. “As a way to celebrate President Trump’s huge announcement, our campaign will be selling a new line of gear. But first we have to make a final decision on the design we will use to commemorate President Trump’s new Space Force- and he wants YOU to have a say”
All of the proposed logos feature the phrase “Space Force” with one logo that also includes the words “Mars Awaits.”
President Trump first mentioned his plans of creating a Space Force in June. This would be the nation's sixth branch of the military and first time there was a new one since the Air Force was created in 1947.
Pence said that the goal is to have the Space Force up and running by 2020. In order for this to happen, there would need to be approval from Congress.
Soon after the announcement, President Trump took to Twitter to express his approval for the Space Force.
Space Force all the way!
