Trump Jokes To Reporters About SpaceX Rocket Launch: “I’d Like To Put You On The Rocket”
President Trump told reporters he is “thinking” about attending a SpaceX rocket launch next Wednesday at the Kennedy Space Center. This will be the first space crewed launch from U.S. soil since 2011 and the first attempt by a private company to fly astronauts to orbit.
Trump will travel to Ypsilanti, Michigan today to tour a Ford components plant and deliver remarks to employees.
“I’m thinking about going next week to the rocket launch,” Trump said outside the White House. “I hope you’re all going to join me. I’d like to put you on the rocket and get rid of you for a while!”
