Trump, speaking at a meeting of the National Space Council, ordered the establishment of the Space Force.
“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,” Trump said. “Our destiny beyond the Earth is not only a matter of national identity, but a matter of national security.”

Who cares if this is totally illegal, immoral, and violates all international treaties that previous Presidents signed with multiple other nations.
45 wants space soldiers and space weapons, so By God he is going to order it done. Dam the treaties and international agreements!
