Space Force faces hurdles in the Pentagon and Congress
from Foreign Policy
President Donald Trump's surprise announcement that he wants to establish a separate "Space Force" as a sixth branch of the U.S. armed forces may pit him against top military leaders and lawmakers. The president's remarks could influence a set of Pentagon reports on the issue due to Congress in August and December, paving the way for lawmakers to include language to create the new branch in next year's defense policy bill for 2020. It not clear that lawmakers will ultimately be swayed by Trump's directive, however.
