Ted Cruz calls Trump effort to phase out International Space Station ‚irresponsible‘

Despite his resistance to Trump’s plans for the space station, Cruz has been a supporter of commercializing space efforts since taking over the Commerce Committee panel that deals with NASA.

On Tuesday, he said that efforts to reach Mars can’t only be done with government dollars. Instead, he argued, Washington should fund NASA while also incentivizing the private sector to expand investments in space.
