Moonraker

Perhaps he'd just finished watching Moonraker and assumed it was a drama-documentary?

Waiting now for Donald D1ck to blow up a satellite, then tweet that his generals had forgotten to tell him that the million pieces of space shrapnel have now made every satellite up there vulnerable, even those of his Space Force. But it won't be his fault, he will just fire another staff member.

Musk expects to start test flights with the BFR as early as next year. Room for up to a hundred passengers. You know it makes sense.......

Perhaps Trump has seen a few too many episodes of Stargate SG-1?

Or perhaps we need to get Jet-Ace Logan out of retirement...

Space Force will now be part of the Department of the Air Force - an analogous arrangement to the USMC being part of the Department of the Navy.

Space Force personnel will have their own unique uniforms which already appear to be available from a number of outlets including Walmart and Amazon:
