He is talking about the space program -- moon and Mars are both part of it.

They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing....

(1) including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), < space program dim wits
(2) Defense and
(3) Science!

Well that conclusion is wrong too.

A mission to Mars does not require a moon base or going to the moon first.

That would actually delay a mission to Mars further.

The Milky Way does not approve of mixed marriages. What would their asteroids look like?

My conclusion was that either he doesn't have any more of a clue about government agencies and the solar system than he does about anything else, or his English isn't very good. What other conclusion can be drawn?

Any chance the President meant that a mission to Mars should be a part of our currently-planning mission to the moon?

Naw. The rabid Trump-haters must be correct in thinking (wishing) that Donald Trump believes the moon and Mars to be the same celestial body.

Maybe next time the right-wingers can elect a president who isn't illiterate and can compose a readable English sentence.

Or that a mission to Mars would require much the same research, preparation, testing, effort etc. as a mission to the moon, and therefore the two are similar.

And his statement that we already went to the moon 50 years ago, probably indicates that the mission should be focused on Mars this time.

Do you rabid Trump-haters begin to understand now?

Or do you still intend to continue your ludicrous lies in hopes that you can get somebody to believe you somewhere?

Can't be any worse than that cupcake thing that passed by us recently.

I'll bet the moon/Mars pairing could produce the cutest little Mar-moon kiddies.

The Prez's tweeting never disappoints.
