White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that the United States Space Force has the full support of the Biden administration, following criticism that she had mocked the service branch in her briefing Tuesday.
Psaki also told reporters that the administration is “not revisiting the decision to establish a Space Force.”
“The desire for the Department of Defense to focus greater attention and resources on the growing security challenges in space has long been a bipartisan issue,” Psaki said Wednesday.
Some background: In the briefing Tuesday, Psaki appeared to mock the Space Force telling reporters: “Wow, Space Force. It’s the plane of today."
When asked whether she would apologize for her earlier comments, Psaki pointed to a tweet she sent Tuesday inviting the members of Space Force to the White House and briefing room.
