Trump attacks Nasa and claims the moon is 'a part' of Mars

09 June 2019

"They must be centered on the remarkable bigger things we're doing, at the side of Mars (of which the Moon is a half), Protection and Science!"

At least that's what he meant to say.

While Trump's tweet on Moon being a part of Mars is unclear, he was talking about NASA's space exploration project, Moon to Mars, of which moon is a part.

President Donald Trump - person who loves himself a Twitter rant, often of the slightly unhinged and regularly falsely accusatory type - has aimed his latest one at NASA and the way it's spending its money.

Trump also tweeted previously about going "back to the Moon". According to Mashable, Trump was recently flamed to bits for a tweet which concerned lunar missions.

Beneath my Administration, we're restoring @NASA to greatness and we're going aid to the Moon, then Mars.

Donald Trump, the man in charge of the United States nuclear arsenal and the country's Commander-in-chief, says the moon is "a part" of Mars. "Right now, @MarsCuriosity and @NASAInSight are on Mars and will soon be joined by the Mars 2020 rover and the Mars helicopter".

Vice President Mike Pence announced plans in April to return to the Moon by 2024 although some space experts doubt whether the deadline can be met.

That counters his administration's policy that NASA should focus on returning to the Moon for a landing in 2024.

He further commented saying that "moon is a part of Mars" and was trolled on the internet. "This time, we will not only plant our flag and leave our footprints - we will establish a foundation for an eventual mission to Mars, and perhaps someday, to many worlds beyond".
