On Tuesday, President Joe Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki mocked a question from a reporter about Biden’s plans for the Space Force, comparing it to a question about the color scheme of Air Force One.
“I am happy to check with our Space Force point of contact,” Psaki said. “I’m not sure who that is.”
Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R., Ill.) said the Space Force is no laughing matter. China surpassed the United States in annual satellite launches in 2020. The communist regime plans to not only increase launches in 2021 but to develop its own space station. Republicans sees the Space Force as a critical tool to safeguard national security against an increasingly aggressive China.
“People laugh at the Space Force, but it puts the fear of God in China,” Kinzinger said.
