Just The News: White House press secretary Jen Psaki is facing backlash for what congressional Republicans and others consider a dismissive response to a reporter’s question about the future of Space Force – part of the U.S. Armed Forces that protects the country and its allies’ interests in space.
“Wow. Space Force. It’s the plane of today,” Psaki said Tuesday, apparently referring to a question in the first days of the Biden administration about Air Force One’s color scheme.
“It is an interesting question,” Psaki said in response to the reporter’s followup question about the military branch formed under the Trump administration and approved by Congress in 2019. “I am happy to check with our Space Force point of contact. I’m not sure who that is. I will find out and see if we have any update on that.” more
