Trump says he’ll be back for delayed SpaceX rocket launch


President Trump has confirmed he will be back in Florida on Saturday after Wednesday’s highly anticipated SpaceX rocket launch was canceled due to bad weather.

“Thank you to @NASA and @SpaceX for their hard work and leadership. Look forward to being back with you on Saturday!” Trump wrote.

The president and first lady traveled to Cape Canaveral on Wednesday with a large crew for the launch, including Vice President Mike Pence as well as Trump’s children, who brought their spouses and kids.

The trip to the Kennedy Space Center was Trump’s first non-coronavirus-related travel after two months of confinement at the White House during the pandemic which has killed 100,000 people in the US.

NASA scrubbed the historic rocket launch with less than 16 minutes to lift-off, blaming thunderstorms.

Astronauts Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken will try again on Saturday afternoon, with a second launch scheduled for 3.22 p.m. ET.
