Trump’s Bizarre Statement About the Moon and Mars Rockets Across Twitter

  • Trump criticizes NASA moon mission after promoting it earlier

President Donald Trump holds a plastic astronaut figurine given to him by Apollo 17 astronaut and former U.S. Senator Jack Schmitt during a signing ceremony for "Space Policy Directive 1" in the Roosevelt Room at the White House December 11, 2017, in Washington, D.C. Trump wanted NASA to go back to the moon but appeared to change his mind in favor of Mars after watching a Fox Business Network segment.

Ironically, Trump's dismissal of lunar missions as something that was done 50 years ago echoed what his predecessor in the White House, Barack Obama, said when he chose to drop the Constellation back-to-the-moon program in 2010: "We've been there before".

Instead, Trump framed the moon program - unveiled by Vice President Mike Pence amid much fanfare less than three months ago - as being merely part of a bigger push to Mars.

The May 13 tweet came amid a flurry of announcements by NASA, the USA space agency, detailing the upcoming manned mission to the moon.

"Moon is part of Mars is going to lead to moon truthers and Qanon people joining forces", reporter Yashar Ali jokingly predicted.

"It is the stated policy of this administration and the United States of America to return American astronauts to the moon within the next five years", Pence said in March at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Alabama.

Um, it doesn't take a Very Stable Genius to know that THE MOON AND MARS ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS!

NASA announced earlier that it plans to open the International Space Station (ISS) to commercial space travel. "We're better than that".

The budget increase was on top of the initial $21 billion budget request from NASA to accelerate the return to the lunar surface.

Last month, Trump said during an appearance with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that Japan and the USA would launch a mission to Mars "very soon". NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine has said NASA's other missions won't be affected, but a top NASA official said in meetings this week that they might. In the coming years, we will need additional funds.

NASA managers had no immediate comment on the president's latest tweet.
