The problem was not in reigniting the American strive to achieve planetary travel or even Trump’s inability to understand Buzz Aldrin’s “Toy Story” quote during his speech. The concern many found was that the president seemed to misunderstand what exactly “space” was.
“At some point in the future, we’re going to look back and say how did we do it without space?” Trump asked, as if “space” was one of the scientists on the team.
Aldrin’s response was obvious and captured on camera.

"One day we will look back and say how did we do it without space?"

Reading from his speech, Trump had a poignant comment about “discovery” and a journey that “will not only make us stronger and more prosperous but will unite us behind grand ambitions and bring us all closer together.” But the moment was short-lived as Trump ad libbed, “Wouldn’t that be nice? Can you believe that space is going to do that?”
Trump then sat down at the table to sign the executive order. “I know what this is. Space!” he announced, enthusiastically.
Aldrin again seemed uncomfortable. “To infinity and beyond!” he joked, and those at the event chuckled.
Trump missed the joke.
“This is infinity here. It could be infinity. We don’t really don’t know. But it could be. It has to be something — but it could be infinity, right?” he said and signed the order.
‘Utterly ridiculous’: Panel rips Andrea Mitchell after she claims ‘real equivalency’ between Trumps and Bidens
An MSNBC panel helped host Andrea Mitchell put things in perspective after she opined on the "swampiness" of Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden.
Hunter Biden recently became a public target of conservatives after it was revealed that President Donald Trump was pressing Ukraine to investigate him and his father. Trump critics contend that it's laughable to investigate the Bidens when Trump's family appears far more corrupt.
"There’s no question that there is a swampiness about Hunter Biden’s work given his lack of qualifications for a lot of this stuff," Mitchell said during her Monday MSNBC program. "But there's a real equivalency here because Eric and Donald Trump Jr. are involved in businesses around the world."
Black family arrested for ‘loitering’ on their own front lawn
On October 1, a black family was standing in the front yard of their home, when police approached. They were arrested for loitering even though they were on their own property, reports KYW news.
Loitering offenses have historically been used as a way to purge people seen as undesirable, such as the homeless, from public spaces.
Now, the family is demanding answers from the Chester Township Police Department in Pennsylvania.
"It's a terrifying thing. It makes me feel as though the police can knock down your door, and drag you out of your home at anytime," Rachel Briggs told KYW. "This is an incident that made me feel like I'm a prisoner in my own home," she added. Her sons and nephew were dragged off to jail, where they spent the night while the family scrambled to make their bail.
GOP consultant: Gruesome fake video of Democrats being massacred ‘endangers Trump more than anybody’
Republican analyst Rick Tyler on Monday insisted that President Donald Trump is at greater risk due to a fake video which shows him massacring members of the media and prominent Democrats.
Tyler made the remarks in reference to a video that was shown at Trump's Miami resort during a three day conference supporting the president.
In the mock video, Trump appears to murder his perceived foes, which include members of the media and public officials.
