President Trump says his ‘Moon is part of Mars’; NASA comes to rescue

Washington | In his latest internet gaffe, US President Donald Trump yesterday wrote a very confusing thing on Twitter and called ‘Moon’ a part of the planet ‘Mars’.

“For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon – We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!”, wrote President Trump on Twitter.

As predicted, this gained a lot of heat, with users quickly trolling for his comment. Some put elaborate diagrams of the planet and the satellite to show him the distance between the two.


However, NASA’s administrator Jim Bridenstine clarified Trump’s statements by offering an explanation.

“As @POTUS said, @NASA is using the Moon to send humans to Mars! Right now, @MarsCuriosity and @NASAInSight are on Mars and will soon be joined by the Mars 2020 rover and the Mars helicopter”, he wrote.

Again, Twitter lauded Bridenstine and called him a very good administrator.

Meanwhile, The President himself has offered no explanation yet.
