Former President Trump in an interview on Sunday took credit for the space race between billionaires Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos, claiming the creation Space Force sparked it.

During an appearance on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” host Maria Bartiromo noted that Branson became the first billionaire to venture into space on Sunday and asked Trump what he had to say in response, adding that Space Force was the first new military branch created since 1947.

The article goes on to state the following:

“So, we’re very proud of that,” Trump said. “It was close to 75 years. It was the Air Force. And now we did Space Force, which is going to be so vital. And we not only did it. I mean, it’s up and running and really great.”

‘I made it possible for them to do this,’ Trump said, taking credit for the revival of space programs and the private sector investment in forward movement.

‘I actually said to my people: Let the private sector do it,’ he said during the phone-in interview. ‘These guys want to come in with billions of dollars. Let’s lease them facilities because you need certain facilities to send up rockets, and we have those facilities.’

‘And we’re seeing advancement now that I don’t believe we would have ever seen had we done it the old-fashioned way,’ Trump added.

WATCH:

Branson, an English business magnate with a net worth of $5.9 billion, went to space in his own spaceship.

At 70 years old,  Branson beat out Amazon founder Jeff Bezos in making it to space. He became the first person to blast off in his own spaceship, beating Bezos by nine days.
