Trump Score Card
SPACE EXPLORATION: A
March 21, 2017: President Donald J. Trump signed the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Transition Authorization Act of 2017, the first comprehensive NASA authorization passed by Congress in more than six years. The bill demonstrates strong bipartisan support for our Nation’s space program and helps ensure that NASA remains at the forefront of exploration and discovery.
June 30, 2017: President Donald Trump signed an executive order to re-establish the National Space Council, reviving an entity that was formed during the 1960s race between the U.S. and the Soviet Union to reach the moon first. “Space exploration is not only essential to our character as a nation but our economy and our great nation’s security,” Trump said adding, “I think privatization of certain aspects is going to play an important role.”
