The Russian Embassy in the United States early Friday morning seemingly mocked President Donald Trump’s campaign for a logo for the administration’s newly announced “Space Force.”
Using Trump’s favorite mode of communicating, the embassy tweeted “Good Morning, Space Forces!” along with a graphic of a rocket being launched and features the Russian flag.
The tweet also links to a Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation’s Space Forces website.
The Space Force, which was announced Thursday, will establish a standalone military Space Force by 2020.
Vice President Mike Pence said during the revealing at the Pentagon that weapons being developed by Russia and China, which include anti-satellite weapons, lasers and hypersonic missiles, could threaten U.S. reliance on space systems.
The force would include creating an elite group of space troops in the same vein as current special operations forces.
