Trump campaign asks supporters to vote on logo for 'Space Force' gear

Source: The Hill



President Trump’s campaign on Thursday latched onto the administration's formal announcement of a proposed “Space Force,” asking supporters to vote on a logo that will be displayed on merchandise.

An email from the campaign asks supporters to vote on one of six logos that will be emblazoned on future Trump campaign items. Users can pick a logo, then are prompted to make a donation to the Trump campaign.

Each of the six proposed logos includes the phrase "Space Force," except for one that states "Mars Awaits" even though the administration's proposal focuses on defense and not space exploration. One option also appears to be a repurposed version of the NASA logo.

The Department of Defense released a report on Thursday detailing the specifics on how it will carry out Trump's request to establish a Space Force by 2020.

Just as the wall will be, and any other large projects.. Like the imprisoning of immigrants is.

it is all to make his donors rich with tax payer dollars.
You can imagine the quality control issues.

19. If this happens...they need to ditch the word "force".

It's belligerent and sounds like the name of a Saturday morning cartoon for children.

The rest of our military is not "Land Force" "Sea Force" "Sky Force"...

Why can't it just be "NASA"?

8. LOL

Back during the 80's I used to wander around (with permission) a defense contractor's facility in California (Hughes, I believe) marveling at all the fanciful logos and decals plastered everywhere for Reagan's proposed Star Wars programs. Lasers were a big theme. None of that @#$% ever came to fruition. Just saying...

9. This is a joke, right?

Space is a vacuum. It literally means empty.

So Trump wants a branch of the military to fight for the millions of square miles of empty space?

Nothing like bankrupting the country by funding an army to guard an empty warehouse. But it's taxpayer money.

Trump is not a taxpayer.

It doesn't appear to be, it quite clearly is stolen from the NASA logo. Who did that one, Melania? She's pretty used to stealing other people's work.

His campaign is asking his supporters to decide on naming a government property. That's got to violate a few statutes.

NASA has always been about peaceful civilian use of space.

Come on: "Space Force" makes it sound like Trump is gearing up to fight Marvin the Martian, Luke Skywalker, the Romulans and the Bug Nation of Klendathu - all of which have about the same authenticity as Donald John "Three Dollar Bill" Trump.
