Donald Trump’s goal isn’t just to return to the White House – he wants to go to Mars.

After announcing his bid for leadership earlier this week, the former president has ramped up his rhetoric about what Americans can expect from a second term.

And that includes planting the American flag in the dusty red soil of Mars.

Speaking at his resort town of Mar-a-Lago, Trump said, “We will push the frontiers of human knowledge and broaden the horizons of human achievement.

“And we will be raising our beautiful American flag on the surface of Mars very soon.”

NASA is currently preparing to send humans to Mars. The Artemis missions will include returning to the moon before eventually sending humans 140 million miles to Mars.

Due to the different orbits between the two planets, there are finely tuned launch windows that must be met for maximum efficiency.

Trump no doubt hopes these will coincide with his second term in charge of the United States.

In addition to sending the Stars and Stripes to Mars, Trump also said he will create a huge nuclear weapons shield to protect the country from incoming attacks. This idea was first discussed by Reagan in the 1980s.

“To protect our people from the unthinkable threat of nuclear weapons and hypersonic missiles, the United States must also build a next-generation, state-of-the-art missile defense shield — we need it,” Trump said.

“The power of these missiles and the power of a word I don’t want to say – nuclear – we must have.”

Thanks to a new interactive map from NASA, aspiring astronauts can now experience the sights and even the sounds of Mars as they'walk' over the red planet. See SWNS story SWSChike. Users can walk over and around the red planet's Jezero crater using virtual reality, a regular laptop, or their phone, and if they stand next to the Mars rover, they can even hear it working. The giant map includes the areas surrounding the landing site of NASA's Mars 2020 Perseverance rover. Steep slopes can be traversed and views can be captured from large scales to centimeter-level detail.

Trump named his successor, President Joe Biden, several times during his speech and said the nation has experienced “pain, hardship, fear and despair” under his leadership. He said inflation is at its highest in 50 years and Americans are facing the highest gas prices.

“Two years ago we were a great nation and soon we will be a great nation again,” Trump said.

“I will fight like no one has fought before.”

Shortly before his announcement speech, he submitted his papers to the Federal Elections Committee to justify his candidacy for the presidency.

This is Trump’s third presidential campaign, having won in 2016 and lost to Biden in 2020.
