Biden White House changes tone, upholds President Trump's Space Force

US President Biden working to undo Trump-era immigration policies; aims to reunite children with their families

"We are not revisiting the decision to establish the Space Force".

While Psaki had an answer to the Space Force question on Wednesday, she could not however address Biden's position on NASA's Artemis program to send astronauts to the moon.

"Wow. Space Force. It's the plane of today!" she said, and called the question "interesting". "I will find out and see if they have any update on that".

Psaki noted that Congress would have to initiate any dismantling of the force.

Psaki was asked at a White House press briefing whether President Joe Biden has decided whether to maintain or maintain the scope of the Space Force. A media question suggested cross-checking the list of White House visitors with the names of confirmed 6 January rioters, who stormed the Capitol following a pro-Trump rally and speech by the now ex-POTUS at the event.


"Thousands of men and women proudly serve in the Space Force", Psaki said.

Psaki said she was not aware of any assessment of Trump's visitor logs and was not sure whether it is "technically possible" but would ask her team if they have access to the records and if they plan to look at them. Psaki may be asked for previews on what Biden will say about foreign policy and global issues like the Myanmar coup.

Psaki's response raised the ire of Republicans, including House Armed Services Committee ranking member Mike Rogers, R-Ala., who criticized it as being disrespectful to members of the service and demanded an apology. In a statement to the outlet, he said, "This is just another example of the Biden administration not taking China seriously while demeaning the incredible work of Space Force personnel".

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg claimed that anyone waving "red flags" about the Biden administration's practice is being absurd. "We need the professionals, @SpaceForceDoD, to keep Americans safe".

In 2020, the Department of Defense released a strategy for how to maintain USA superiority in space. The Pentagon identified China and Russian Federation as its most immediate threats.
