After looking at prototypes for a wall on the Mexican border, Donald Trump addressed Marines at Miramar Air Station in San Diego on Tuesday.

In addition to touting record-breaking military spending and promising a raise to the military he also laid out plans for a space army.

“We should have a new force called the Space Force. It’s like the Army and the Navy, but for space, because we’re spending a lot of money on space,” he said. "I said maybe we need a new force, I was not really serious, then I said 'what a great idea.' Maybe we'll have to do that.”

"My new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air, and sea," he said.

The president's absurd idea was immediately mocked.

Would Trump serve?

"It’s probably where he wants to station the transgendered military or something," one joked.

Others see Hollywood potential in the form of Star Wars Episode IX: Space Force.

Others were just intrigued.

What would this Space Force look like?
