It's unclear how Trump's space military will be regarded by other nations.
President Donald Trump used a term from U.S. segregationist history to describe the relationship between the Air Force and his newest military branch, the Space Force, calling it "separate but equal".

Congressional action will likely be needed to create the appointments and appropriations necessary to bring a new branch of the military into existence. But some, including two Republican members of the House Armed Services Strategic Forces Subcommittee, backed the initiative.
Trump more broadly envisioned a bright future for the USA space program, pledging to revive the country's flagging efforts, return to the moon and eventually send a human mission that would reach Mars.
