President Donald Trump attempted to talk about both defense and science in an afternoon tweet where he claimed that the moon is a part of the planet Mars.

The president quizzically tweeted: "For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon - We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!"
