Space Force Recruitment Slogans: 'Making Uranus Great Again' and Other Taglines For Trump's New Project

Earlier this week, President Donald Trump announced that he intends to create an official "Space Force" which will effectively be the sixth independent branch of the U.S. Armed Forces.

“We are going to have the Air Force and we are going to have the ‘Space Force’—separate but equal, it is going to be something so important,” Trump said at the White House National Space Council meeting on Monday afternoon.

Since then, Twitter has exploded with recruitment slogan suggestions for the new military branch. “Make Uranus Great Again,” one user tweeted on Thursday, alongside the trending hashtag #SpaceForceRecruitmentSlogans. “The Rebels will pay for it!” wrote another.

On Thursday morning, #SpaceForceRecruitmentSlogans became the top trending Twitter topic in the U.S., with thousands of Americans using the hashtag to make suggestions or comment on Trump’s new idea. A large portion of the posts poked fun at some of the president’s most infamous catchphrases.

“Aliens are bringing space drugs. They're bringing intergalactic crime. They're probers. And some, I assume, are good extraterrestrials,” one user tweeted.

“Wait til you meet some alien chicks! When you’re an Earthling, you can grab ’em by the pussy. They let you do it. You can do anything,” another wrote.

“The best people are saying it will be the greatest force we've ever seen folks, believe me,” one user tweeted.

"Make Black Holes White Again!" another user suggested.

During his announcement, Trump claimed that the new Space Force would allow the U.S. to, once again, be the “world’s greatest space-faring nation.”

“When it comes to defending America, it is not enough merely to have an American presence in space; we must have American dominance in space,” he said. “I am hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a Space Force as the sixth branch of the armed forces.”

“We are going to have the Air Force and we are going to have the Space Force—separate but equal. It is going to be something,” Trump added. “We don't want China, and Russia, and other countries leading us. We've always led.”
