US president Donald Trump has announced the nation will have a new “Space Force” branch to their military.

Mr Trump said it would be a “separate but equal” to the US Air Force, Navy and Army and talked of the need for “dominance” in space.

Whether the announcement comes to fruition or not, on the Internet it has been met with a series of unsurprising but creative reactions – memes.

Twitter, doing what it does best.

Sterling work.
