Jen Psaki, a spokeswoman for the White House, said President Biden will not abolish the U.S. Space Force, Defense News reported Wednesday. Psaki told reporters Wednesday during a briefing the Biden administration fully supports the new service branch and is “not revisiting the decision.”

Gen. John Raymond, chief of space operations and 2021 Wash100 Award recipient, said he would “welcome the opportunity” to discuss with the Biden administration the Space Force’s ongoing work.

The new service is overseeing the country’s GPS constellation, monitoring space debris and managing communications satellites, among other responsibilities.

“I’m very proud of the guardians in the Space Force,” Raymond told reporters Wednesday during a morning roundtable. “I see the value of this force each and every day, and I’m happy to talk to anybody about the great work [it’s doing].”
