If nothing else, Donald Trump is a master of distraction.
Whenever a negative story starts to emerge about the President (i.e. every single hour of every single day), he launches into an incoherent and downright offensive Twitter rant that buries the story deep within the day's news cycle. That, or he enacts some kind of policy change that destroys peoples' lives the world over. Either/or.
But as the pressure starts to mount on his presidency, The Donald is clearly panicking over his legacy. But don't worry: he's got the perfect plan.
He's going to do a Kennedy. He's going to put a man on the moon.
And then he's going to beat Kennedy by putting a man on Mars, too.
"We are the leader and we're going to stay the leader, and we're going to increase it many fold," Trump said while signing "Space Policy Directive 1", at the White House yesterday. 'Directive 1' establishes a foundation for a mission to the moon, with intention of exploring mars, too.
"Today we pledge that he will not be the last, and I suspect we will be finding some other places to land other than the Moon.
Back in June, China's space official announced that the country was preparing to send a man to the moon. Just the moon, China? SAD.
"The directive I am signing today will refocus the space programme on human exploration and discovery. It is an important step in returning American astronauts to the Moon, for the first time since 1972 for long time exploration and use.
"This time, we will not only plant our flag and leave our footprint, we will establish a foundation for an eventual mission to Mars," Trump said. "And perhaps, someday, to many worlds beyond."
Sounds exciting! We think Trump should go. Across all the planets. It might take a while.
