Trump Asks Twitter To Pick a Logo For His ‘Space Force’ And Hilarity Ensues
President Trump insists that his administration will create a sixth branch of the U.S. military known as the “Space Force” by 2020.
To get the ball rolling, Trump asked his supporters on Twitter to vote on one of six Space Force logos that will be emblazoned on future Trump campaign items.
Each of the logos features the words “Space Force.” There’s one that says “Mars Awaits,” even though the proposed military branch is about defense, not exploration.
Recipients were also asked to donate to the campaign.
NBC News correspondent Kasie Hunt posted the logos so non-Trump supporters could also see what’s being considered.
Mockery quickly ensued as Twitter users couldn’t help but offer logo concepts they felt were more appropriate.
Take a look below.
