Trump Takes Credit For Space Launch That Got Its Start A Decade Ago.

“The groundwork for sending NASA astronauts up on a commercial space vehicle. . . goes back more than a decade. It proceeded steadily under both Republican and Democratic administrations.

‘This is a program that demonstrates the success when you have continuity of purpose going from one administration to the next,’ said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine in a recent preflight briefing.

In 2006, under President George W. Bush, the space agency started a program to get commercial companies to begin delivering cargo to the International Space Station.

. . . Having companies take astronauts to the outpost was a natural extension of this cargo program. NASA announced its commercial crew program in 2010, under President Barack Obama.”

And so it goes.
