President Trump Comes Out Against NASA’s Plans to Return to the Moon

President Trump Friday stated that he believes NASA should not be focusing on returning to the moon, but rather directing their efforts towards “much bigger things.”

“For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon — We did that 50 years ago,” the president tweeted from aboard Air Force One.

The tweet comes in direct conflict with previous signs from the administration, including a directive from President Trump in 2017 that directed NASA to focus on a return trip to the moon. Vice President Pence also stated in March that the Trump administration was committed to returning to the moon within the next five years.
