When Trump starts tweeting about a weird thing for no apparent reason...

Left, Fox Business, 12:26 p.m.

Neil Cavuto: NASA is "refocusing on the moon, the next sort of quest, if you will, but didn't we do this moon thing quite a few decades ago?"

Right, Trump, 1:38 p.m.
Fox is not responsible for the part about the moon being part of Mars, though the network has had some pretty weird moon theories! mediamatters.org/blog/2011/07/2…
Actually, Trump's "Mars (of which the Moon is a part)" line is probably referring to the NASA flack's point that going to the moon would help us get to Mars later on.
The president's tweet seems to largely be commentary on how Jeff DeWit, the NASA chief financial officer who Trump was watching on Fox Business, frames his discussion of the agency's plans.
Working backwards.

We need "action by Congress" to fix immigration.

Right, Trump, 1:27 p.m.
Cavuto's entire A-block was about whether Trump is going to impose tariffs on Mexico.

Trail goes cold there, Pelosi tweets don't seem related (and they're threaded, so could have been a more planned statement of some sort).
