Here are the glorious proposed logos for Donald Trump's Space Force

US President Donald Trump's administration set a goal on Thursday of creating a sixth branch of the US military by 2020 known as the "Space Force" and said it would work to build bipartisan support in Congress for the plan.

"Our adversaries have transformed space into a warfighting domain already".

"Just as we've done in ages past, the United States will meet the merging threats on this new battlefield", he said in a speech at the Pentagon.

Critics argue that Trump's Space Force would be stepping on the toes of the U.S. Air Force Space Command, which now oversees the nation's military operations in space. The change, which would require approval from Congress, would be a dramatic change in the organization of the Defense Department. And the idea has already run into fierce opposition inside and outside the Pentagon, particularly from the Air Force, which could lose some of its responsibilities.

Trump said in June that he was moving to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the U.S. armed forces.

Initially an assistant secretary of defense for space, this position will be "key to the critical transition to a Secretary of the Space Force in the years ahead", said Pence. "We are glad that the Pentagon is finally taking these steps in enhancing our space strength", Reps. As the vice president was speaking, the Pentagon sent Congress a detailed report on the establishment of the Space Force. The Navy and Army also have substantial space forces that would likely be pulled into the new service, Harrison said.

Space warfare capabilities are now overseen by the US Air Force.

The Trump campaign has proven itself skillful at merchandising, with their red baseball cap emblazoned with the campaign slogan "Make America Great Again" becoming one of the most omnipresent symbols of the 2016 United States presidential campaign.

He has been replaced by Ollie Pope, another 20-year-old who would be looking to make an impact like Sam Curran did. I think the four-to-six region, I don't think there's a massive difference in the way you play.

To sum up, the Space Force is officially the sixth branch of military service.

Democratic Senator Brian Schatz, who is on the Defense Appropriations subcommittee, said the Space Force was a 'dumb idea'.

Trump marked Pence's announcement with a tweet: "Space Force all the way!" The United States, then, is left with two options: compete in this developing battlespace or be left at a significant disadvantage. "Unfortunately, because space is one of the 11 other missions they have, it is always going to be subordinate, but worse it's going to be a pay-for, which is what's happened over these years". The command has about 38,000 personnel and operates 185 military satellite systems, including the Global Positioning System and communications and weather satellites.

Officials plan to create a Space Operations Force - an "elite group of war fighters specializing in the domain of space" drawn from various branches of the military, in the style of existing special operations forces, Pence said.

"The Space Force will unlock our potential and lead to outcomes never before thought possible", the Pentagon document concluded.

But Trump's Space Force would add more than just a competitive presence in space or an additional focus on protection of US space assets.

One of the proposed logos (top right) looks like NASA's logo, except with a red background and the phrase "SPACE FORCE" instead of "NASA". "Until we have those same needs in space, the Air Force and the other services are doing all the things we need to do".
