Russian Federation has linked the proposed formation of the US Space Force and its intended withdrawal from the Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty to the Trump administration's intention to dominate space. Pence promised that the new troops will be established no later than 2020.
The new positioning comes as the Trump administration moves to potentially exit a major nuclear weapons pact with Russian Federation and possibly bolster USA military operations in the heavens by forming a "Space Force".
"Space is a war fighting domain just like the land, air, and sea", he said, "And America will be as dominant there as we are here on Earth".
Pence said the Trump administration was already working closely with congressional leaders on "both sides of the Capitol building" to include funding for the Space Force in next year's defense budget.

The head of the U.S. Air Force said last month that creating a space force would cost about $13 billion for a force of 13,000 people in the first five years. "And there are a number of steps that will be launched in the very short term but that will ultimately lead to the launch of a Department of the United States Space Force in the next national Defense Authorization Act", Pence said.
Pence said all of this informs the fact that "we have to have the capacity to protect our existing infrastructure in space".
In creating the Space Force that President Donald Trump wants, one of the first steps should be to make an agency that buys cutting-edge space technology for all branches of the US military, the National Space Council said Tuesday.
U.S. President Donald Trump's planned U.S. Space Command should seek to develop ways for the country's military to operate in outer space, White House advisers recommended on Tuesday, with the government hoping to secure approval for it by 2020. The US President promised to return the United States to the moon and to reach Mars.
