I think it's no small influence on him and he would like nothing better than to be the one to initiate a very bold space exploration plan for the future. Call it glory-mongering (maybe it is a bit), or call it an outgrowth of is own interest in the field, I think this announcement is genuinely a plan he's had for a while.

I think this is just a whole lot of PR spin & hot air to deflect criticism of his current shorter term space plans.
I also think it is intended to distract the media & voters from all the other problems he is causing.
Let's hope proper focus is applied to what he is saying, so that if he's a being total fraud he will be exposed as such.
