Russia Trolls Trump’s Space Force Announcement with a Space Force Logo of Their Own.
President Trump didn’t waste any time in trying to raise additional campaign dollars on the back of the newly announced U.S. Space Force.
It was just two days ago that Vice President Mike Pence announced plans to create a U.S. Space Force by the year 2020, and within hours the Trump campaign had sent out an email asking his subscribers to help choose a logo for the new Space Force.
“President Trump wants a SPACE FORCE- a ground breaking endeavor for the future of America and the final frontier. As a way to celebrate President Trump’s huge announcement, our campaign will be selling a new line of gear. But first we have to make a final decision on the design we will use to commemorate President Trump’s new Space Force- and he wants YOU to have a say”
After this, the Russian embassy in the U.S. mocked President Trump by making a tweet of their own, with their very own “Space Force” logo.
Good Morning, Space Forces!

The link in the tweet directs to Russia’s own “Space Forces” website. The logo itself takes the Russian flag and incorporates designs similar to Trump’s own logos.
