Kennedy got the US to the Moon could Trump get the US to Proxima b? Trump thinks out of the box. It is feasible using current technology to build a space probe that would travel to Proxima b. Building such a vehicle would spur scientific advances and stimulate people's imagination.

Proxima Centauri b (also called Proxima b) is an exoplanet orbiting within the habitable zone of the red dwarf star Proxima Centauri, the closest star to the Sun. It is located about 4.2 light-years (1.3 parsecs, 40 trillion km, or 25 trillion miles) from Earth in the constellation of Centaurus, making it the closest known exoplanet to the Solar System. It is unlikely to be habitable, as the planet is subject to stellar wind pressures of more than 2,000 times those experienced by Earth from the solar wind.

Why bother?

Just get his army of fake news websites to say he has for none of the cost.

Apparently if they go 500 AU in the opposite direction to proxima b on the other side of the sun it's possible to use the gravitational lensing of both the sun and proxima centauri to achieve an optical effect that will allow observation of proxima b down to a resolution of 10km.

We can use the sun to bend light to make a big telescope that can see the surface of proxima b.
