Previous administrations all but neglected the growing security threats emerging in space. President Trump stated clearly, and forcefully, that space is in his words, a war fighting domain just like land, and air, and sea. The United States of America, under his leadership, will meet the emerging threats on this new battlefield.
Our adversaries have been working to bring new weapons of war into space itself. And the United States will not shrink from this challenge. An elite group of joint war fighters specializing in the domain of will form the backbone of the nation's newest Armed Service, Space Operations Force. It is not enough to merely have an American presence in space.
We must have American dominance in space and so we will.
