Former White House Aide: Trump Offered NASA Unlimited Funding To Go To Mars

3

President Trump in 2017 offered unlimited funding to NASA to send a manned flight to Mars, according to an upcoming book.

“Is there any way we could do it by the end of my first term?” Trump reportedly asked Lightfoot, who explained to the president that NASA planned to try a manned spaceflight by the 2030s and that there were logistical challenges of doing so before then.

Trump then offered Lightfoot “all the money you could ever need,” according to Cliff Sims’s upcoming book “Team of Vipers.” “But what if I gave you all the money you could ever need to do it?” Trump asked. “What if we sent NASA’s budget through the roof, but focused entirely on that instead of whatever else you’re doing now. Could it work then?”

Lightfoot reportedly responded to the president by telling him he didn’t think that was possible. That left Trump “visibly disappointed,” wrote Sims, a former White House communications staffer.

  1. One giant leap for mankind.

    Hopscotch? Galaxy has the next. Young foggy Earth to never forget.

    Lock it brown sail high. Mind the man on the moon and the guy on Mars. Maybe someday they can rove the heavens.

    Guys on earth in bars. Men in synagogue. The words will be different.

    Grade me mine. I’ll keep my gay walk to the young planet we have. You keep kosher here and our King helps you your next.

    A bum baby moon. Lock ahead.
