As far as mars NASA wa planning on 2025 that would be within his second term if he gets one.
I haven't seen that plan.
But ok, he would have a month (part of January) in 2025 if reelected.

With a project of this size, what does it mean to rush it? What does it mean to not rush it?
Nothing will be done, or get done without many cords of flaming wood being placed directly under the correct asses. NASA is a huge bureaucracy and they saw what happened to Apollo when they reached their supposed goal of man on the moon.
NASA considered a manned fly-by of Venus in the mid-1960s as part of the Apollo Applications Program, using hardware derived from the Apollo program. Launch would have taken place on October 31, 1973, with a Venus flyby on March 3, 1974 and return to Earth on December 1, 1974.
