You know the Space Force is getting real when the T-shirts have arrived. The Nevada GOP just launched its new Space Force merchandise on Monday, in preparation for the eventual sixth branch of the military.
In addition to the tees, the state GOP is also offering Space Force lapel stickers. They are being sold in conjunction with a new Greenland T-shirt, as a nod to recent reports that President Trump is considering buying the Danish-owned region.
Nevada GOP Chairman Michael J. McDonald said in a statement on Monday that the new Space Force products are intended to commemorate the party being on WinRed:
“The Nevada Republican Party is thrilled to be on the WinRed platform," he said. "Something like this has been long overdue. We can’t wait to offer Republicans in Nevada, and around the country, an opportunity to easily contribute to our success up and down the ballot with products like our new Space Force products to showcase their support for President Trump’s 2020 campaign. We are excited to be a model for how state parties can maximize WinRed.”
WinRed is described as "a conduit PAC coupled with proven fundraising technology." Or, "Conservatives' #1 fundraising technology."
President Trump announced in June 2018 that the Space Force would be the first new branch of the military in more than 70 years. It is expected to officially launch in 2020.
"America must be fully equipped to defend our vital interests," Trump said after signing the Space Policy Directive 4 in February to make the Space Force an armed service within the Air Force. "Our adversaries are training forces and developing technology to undermine our security in space."
