The latest news coming from pentagon sources it that President Donald Trump is set to sign into law a monumental piece of legislation known as the National Defense Authorization Act as well as authorizing $1.4 trillion in spending which will go to huge variety of public works causes including the much lauded American Space Force. The new spending package will create new jobs and help bolster the United States Military by allowing it to remain at the technological cutting edge. Additionally, President Trump’s new legislation will give quality of life improvements to members of our nation’s armed forces.
President Trump went on to describe the historic legislation, “I will be signing our 738 Billion Dollar Defense Spending Bill today. It will include 12 weeks Paid Parental Leave, gives our troops a raise, importantly creates the SPACE FORCE, SOUTHERN BORDER WALL FUNDING, repeals “Cadillac Tax” on Health Plans, raises smoking age to 21! BIG!”
Defense Secretary Mark Esper also had this to say about the bill, “Importantly the NDAA authorizes the establishment of the United States Space Force as the newest branch of the Armed Forces,” Esper said. “Our reliance on space-based capabilities has grown dramatically, and today outer space has evolved into a war fighting domain of its own. Maintaining American dominance in that domain is now the mission of the United States Space Force.”
The signing comes just before the President plans to leave for Florida to spend the rest of the Christmas holiday season with his family.
