President Donald Trump announced on Monday that he wanted to add a sixth branch to the military to focus on space.

Late night show host Seth Meyers mocked President Trump for stepping into unknown territory.

"Trump doesn't know anything about space or space policies, so he can't actually explain why he thinks a pointless and expense space force is necessary," he said.

During his announcement President Trump said: "There is no place like space."

"He sounds like an actor playing Caption Kirk in a diner theater production of star trek who forgot all of his lines," Meyers said.
