Trump Says ‘NASA’s Back’ Thanks to ‘Rich Guys’ Paying U.S. Rent

Trump Says ‘NASA’s Back’ Thanks to ‘Rich Guys’ Paying U.S. Rent(Bloomberg) — President Donald Trump pledged to re-establish U.S. dominance in space, a day after he welcomed the surviving Apollo 11 astronauts to the White House to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.“Sustained exploration that extends from our Earth to the Moon and on to the Martian surface will usher in a new era of American ingenuity,” Trump said in a message on Saturday, which he declared Space Exploration Day.Trump on Friday invited retired astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, and the family of Neil Armstrong — the first man to walk on the moon — to the White House to mark the space milestone. “NASA’s back,” Trump said. “We’re having rich guys use it and pay us rent.”The U.S. lost its domestic capability to put humans in orbit after the shuttle program was shut down in 2011 without a replacement, and relied on Russia to send astronauts to work in the International Space Station. Trump has waffled on NASA’s priorities. In December 2017, he directed the space agency to return astronauts to the moon by 2025, then in a June tweet made Mars the priority.On Saturday, he said few moments “spark more pride” than the Apollo 11 mission, which helped inspire generations of scientists and engineers and was the catalyst for a technological revolution.“My administration is committed to reestablishing our Nation’s dominance and leadership in space,” he said, adding that NASA was directed to “send the next man and first woman to the Moon and to take the next giant leap — sending Americans to Mars.”The space agency recently announced it would allow “private astronauts” to pay to visit the International Space Station.At the White House on Friday, the president said: “We are going to the moon and then we’re going to Mars.”“We don’t know what we’re going to find on Mars but it’s certainly a trip that’s going to be very interesting,” he said.NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine told Trump they’ll eventually get to Mars from a space station orbiting the moon.Vice President Mike Pence said that “within the next year” American astronauts will return to space on rockets launched from U.S. soil.Trump in February signed an order to clear the way for creation of a new branch of the military called Space Force. He said the administration is “very close to getting that completed and operating.”To contact the reporters on this story: Margaret Talev in Washington at mtalev@bloomberg.net;Josh Wingrove in Washington at jwingrove4@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Alex Wayne at awayne3@bloomberg.net, Steve Geimann, Andrew DavisFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

North Korean leader warns of return to tension; Trump thanks Putin

North Korean leader warns of return to tension; Trump thanks PutinKim’s remarks during talks with Putin on Thursday appeared aimed at pushing Washington to be more flexible on North Korean demands for an easing of international sanctions. U.S. President Donald Trump, who ended a second summit with Kim in February without a deal for North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons, seemed unperturbed, saying a lot of progress was being made toward an agreement and welcoming Putin’s support. Putin said after holding his first face-to-face talks with Kim in the Russian Pacific port of Vladivostok on Thursday that U.S. security guarantees would probably not be enough to persuade Pyongyang to give up its nuclear program.

Kellyanne Conway thanks Trump for defending her after president calls her husband a 'stone cold loser'

Kellyanne Conway thanks Trump for defending her after president calls her husband a 'stone cold loser'White House aide Kellyanne Conway publicly backed Donald Trump on Wednesday after an extraordinary 48-hour Twitter row between the president and her husband came to a head. Mrs Conway used a cable news interview to insist she would not resign and rebuked her husband George for airing his views in public. It follows two days during which Mr Conway and Mr Trump have traded blows on twitter in a war of words that has generated a slew of headlines. It began earlier this week with Mr Conway, a prominent conservative lawyer, suggesting the president suffered from a narcissistic personality disorder in a string of tweets, adding "his condition is getting worse every day". It led Mr Trump to issue a scathing response on Wednesday, tweeting: "George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted. I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!" George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted. I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 20, 2019 In front of the cameras later Mr Trump added: "I don’t know him. He’s a whack job, there’s no question about it. I think he’s doing a tremendous disservice to his wonderful wife. Kellyanne is a wonderful woman". Asked to untangle the situation on Wednesday, Mrs Conway told Fox Business: "I appreciate the president defending what he thinks is unfairness. I’ll leave that up to him. I was raised, though, in a household of strong Italian Catholic women who taught me that you air grievances like that in private, so it is very surprising to see it be so public". She also ruled out leaving her position, although she said her husband would like her to step down. "I’m not being asked to choose between my marriage and my job. The president has never made me feel that way". You seem determined to prove my point. Good for you! t.co/ZSpb3UXVPC— George Conway (@gtconway3d) March 20, 2019 "What message would that send to the feminists everywhere who pretend they’re independent thinkers and men don’t make decisions for them?" she said. "They can talk it, and I can walk it. I can live it." She added that Mr Trump had largely avoided retaliating to her husband’s barbs in the past because he is "protective" of her. Mr Trump relied heavily on Mrs Conway, a longtime Republican pollster and strategist, to help steer his presidential campaign to victory in 2016 and she remains a trusted member of his inner circle. Mrs Conway has so largely avoided commenting on her marriage and said she wants to protect the couple’s four school-age children. Appearing pained at times during the interview, she said: "My husband has been very critical of the president publicly, which is unlike him because he’s usually a very private person." "I don’t know when the feminists are going to write this story about the unusual situation of a man getting power through his wife but that’s what we have here," she added. Mr Conway had at one time been friendly with Mr Trump and contemplated taking a job within the administration’s Department of Justice. He later said he withdrew himself from consideration for the role because he watched Mr Trump attack the department’s leaders and then fire then FBI director James Comey in May 2017. In recent months he has been a frequent critic of the president in recent months, even while his wife goes on television to defend her boss. His attacks on the president increased in the last few days in response to a weekend "tweet storm" by the president in which he attacked the late senator John McCain, Google and the Russia investigation. In an interview with the Washington Post this week, Mr Conway said he tweets about Mr Trump in order to avoid taking his frustrations out on his wife. "The tweeting is just the way to get it out of the way, so I can get it off my chest and move on with my life that day. That’s basically it. Frankly, it’s so I don’t end up screaming at her about it." Sign up for your essential, twice-daily briefing from The Telegraph with our free Front Page newsletter.
