WATCH: Trump Unveils EPIC Joint USA-Japan Plan for Moon and Mars Trip

On Monday, while meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo, President Trump announced that the US and Japan will be joining forces to cooperate together on future missions in outer space.

“I am pleased to confirm that Prime Minister Abe and I have agreed to dramatically expand our nations’ cooperation in human space exploration,” said Trump. “Japan will join our mission to send US astronauts to space.”

Trump continued explaining that the joint operation plans to see US and Japanese astronauts visit the moon, as well as Mars, which he said was “very exciting.”

Trump supporters took to social media to praise the president’s international efforts, with several noting that, until Trump’s presidency, the United States has appeared to lose interest in its space exploration programs.
