Trump: New age of US ambition in space begins

After the successful launch of the first crewed spaceflight by private company SpaceX, United States President Donald Trump said that a "new age of American ambition has begun."

Speaking in Florida, Trump lamented the "lost decades" of inaction by previous administrations to advance space exploration before congratulating SpaceX CEO Elon Musk on the successful launch. From now on the US will leverage the fast-growing capabilities of the commercial sector as "the commercial space industry is the future," Trump proclaimed.

"We’ll soon be landing on Mars and we’ll soon have the greatest weapons ever imagined in history, I’ve already seen the designs and even I can’t believe it," Trump told the audience at the Kennedy Space Center.
