Donald Trump was shooting for the stars in announcing it would be a great idea for the United States to exercise military dominance in outer space, but he’s got a lot of unfinished business here on earth.

The president directed Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford on Monday to create a standalone so-called Space Force as a separate branch of the U.S. military.
“The essence of the American character is to explore new horizons and to tame new frontiers,” Trump stated at a meeting Monday with the National Space Council. “But our destiny, beyond the Earth, is not only a matter of national identity, but a matter of national security. So important for our military.”
Is it a coincidence that Russia has also focused a lot of its energy of planning for military dominance of space and Trump is getting on the same page—perhaps to collaborate again? Whatever his reasons, the president hasn’t been taking care of business down here.
This list could go on forever, but there are many priorities on earth that clearly take precedence before trying to make “Star Wars” into a reality.
