In December 2019, president Donald Trump launched Space Force, the US’s first new military service since 1947, declaring space the “world’s new war-fighting domain”.
Space Force’s mission was part of a broader vision to achieve American dominance in space.
But now with Joe Biden in office, what happens to the $57 million-per-year project?
White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked about it
Specifically, Ms Psaki was asked whether President Joe Biden had made a decision on “keeping or keeping the scope of Space Force”.
Her reaction was somewhat sarcastic.
“It is an interesting question. I am happy to check with our Space Force point of contact — I’m not sure who that is, I will find out and see if we have any update on that.”
Her reaction did not go down well with some Republicans
Top House Republican Mike Rogers wants Ms Psaki to “immediately apologise”.
