Report: Most Americans Want Trump to Go to Mars

Jul 23, 2019

Make Mars Great Again

It’s been over 50 years since Apollo 11 landed on the moon.  Recently, talks have resurfaced about the possibility of going to Mars.  

President Trump jumped into the conversation and agreed with Barack Obama that our focus should be on sending astronauts to Mars.

On July 4th, Trump spoke directly to Gene Kranz, the Apollo program flight director, saying “Gene, I want you to know that we’re going to be back on the moon very soon, and someday soon we will plant the American flag on Mars.” 

For some Americans, such a plan is seen as a frivolous expense.  They cite the US debt at a record $22 trillion and prioritize many pressing domestic concerns.

But for most Americas, the choice is clear: Trump must go to MARS.

“I don’t care what it costs,” said Minnesota resident Dawn Redkins at a recent NASA convention.  “You can save money and not fly him back.  He can just stay out there and test a longterm colony or whatever.”

“Do it in the name of science, goodwill, or even narcissistic bragging rights,” added Pittsburgh resident Walter Gripp.  “The point is to just go.  Please.  If he's worried about being lonely he can take his whole family.  They’ve already left this planet years ago so it should be real easy for them.  Now please: GO.”

Trump has not replied to our comments on his plans.  But based on his commitment level to passing bills to help Earth, all signs indicate his priorities are 50 million miles away.
