"Our competitors have begun weaponizing space", Trump warned troops at Fort Drum in NY state, as he signed a National Defense Authorization Act passed by Congress earlier this month.

President Trump announced the creation of this new sixth branch of the military in mid-June during an advisory council meeting, stating "I'm hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a Space Force as the sixth branch of the armed forces".

One of the arguments in favor of setting up an Air Force is that the great adversaries of the United States, such as Russian Federation and China, seem to be more and more ready to strike American equipment or equipment. based in space, in case of war.


The vice president mentioned four major, fundamental steps that the USA government will take to create a Space Force.

In a speech at the Pentagon Thursday (Aug. 9), Vice President Mike Pence revealed a detailed plan to create the Space Force, which Trump proposed earlier this yearn. The U.S. will meet the emerging threats on this new battlefield, he said, and carry on the cause of liberty and peace into the next great frontier. If approved by Congress, the Space Force could be ready by 2020, he added. 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. "But history proves that peace only comes through strength", he added. "And in the realm of outer space, the United States Space Force will be that strength".

This hasn't stopped President Pence from outlining specifics of the new military force. Eighteenth of June, the USA leader outlined the seriousness of his intentions when he ordered the Pentagon to create a new branch of the Armed forces.
