Trump’s Bizarre Statement About the Moon and Mars Rockets Across Twitter

President Donald Trump reeled off a Tweet Friday afternoon as mysterious as the dark side of the moon. He suggested NASA should instead focus on "the much bigger things", including Mars, defense and science.

"For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon - We did that 50 years ago".

Hours after NASA announced it will allow private companies and astronauts to use the International Space Station as the agency continues to focus on returning Americans to the moon in the coming years, President Donald Trump blasted the agency in a strongly worded tweet.

During a March 27 meeting with NASA managers and aerospace officials at the agency's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, Pence said the Trump administration was ordering NASA to send astronauts back to the moon by 2024, four years earlier than had been planned.

It did not appear that Fox can be blamed for the odd comment about the moon being part of Mars.

"As JFK famously said, "We choose to go to the Moon not because it is easy, but because it is Mars, '" 'Daily Show" employee Jason O. Gilbert joked. "We'll be going to Mars very soon".

Last month, Trump said during an appearance with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that Japan and the United States would launch a mission to Mars "very soon". NASA has been energized by the lunar return mission, but the price now seems a possible threat to other NASA programs.

"Moon is part of Mars is going to lead to moon truthers and Qanon people joining forces", reporter Yashar Ali jokingly predicted.

With 2024 the new target for "boots on the moon", the Trump administration added $1.6 billion to NASA's 2020 budget request on May 13.

Cavuto reportedly told the TV cable network that Nasa is "refocusing on the moon, the next sort of quest, if you will, but didn't we do this moon thing quite a few decades ago?"
