President Donald Trump called the two astronauts on Oct. 18 while they participated in NASA’s first all-female spacewalk. Trump congratulated Christina Koch and Jessica Meir on their achievement. “You’re both brave, brilliant women, and you represent this country so well,” Trump said. Meir responded by crediting the female astronauts who came before her and said she and Koch hoped they could be an inspiration to future astronauts. Trump also addressed questions over his impeachment inquiry, a cease-fire deal with Turkey in Syria and trade relations with China.
