Retired astronaut Karen Nieberg, who is married to Doug Hurley, an astronaut aboard the SpaceX rocket that was launched this week, also complained about appearing in the ad without her consent.
He tweeted, “I think it is wrong to disturb a video image of me and my son being used in political propaganda without my knowledge or consent,”
Trump traveled to Florida on Saturday to deliver a speech at the Kennedy Space Center and the successful launch of the NASA / SpaceX rocket on Saturday, saying, “The United States has regained our place of honor as a world leader.”
The President continued: “If you are number two in the world, you cannot be number one in the world, and we will not be number two anywhere.” “
The video will no longer be shown on the promotional YouTube channel. Trump’s campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
It’s not clear if NASA Administrator Jim Brydenstein, who came with Trump at the start of last Saturday, knew about the ad in advance.
