In New Interview, Trump Opens Up About His Ideas on the Truth of UFOs: ‘Do I Believe It?’

President Donald Trump isn’t exactly known for keeping his secrets and ideas close to his chest, but the president hasn’t opened up about unidentified flying objects — at least not until a new interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos this week.

Trump said he has been briefed on UFOs, telling Stephanopoulos, “I want them to think whatever they think. They do say — I’ve seen and I’ve read and I’ve heard and I did have one very brief meeting on it — but people are saying they’re seeing UFOs. Do I believe it? Not particularly.”

When asked if he thought he would know if there were evidence of extraterrestrials, Trump told Stephanopoulos, “I think my great, our great pilots would know. And some of them really see things that are a little bit different than in the past, so we’re going to see. But we’re watching — you’ll be the first to know.”

Watch below:

Presidents have been talking about UFOs for about just as long as the American public has been talking about the mysterious sightings. Former President Jimmy Carter famously insisted that he spotted one, calling it “the darndest thing I’ve ever seen.”

Former President George W. Bush, however, was famously tight-lipped about UFOs during an interview, but Hillary Clinton gave UFO enthusiasts a bit of hope before the 2016 election when she said she intended to open up the files on extraterrestrials.

When asked what she believes, Clinton was a bit less skeptical than Trump. The former First Lady said, “I don’t know. I want to see what the information shows.” Later, she added, “There’s enough stories out there that I don’t think everybody is just sitting in their kitchen making them up.”

So far, the 2020 Democratic candidates have been pretty quiet about what they think about UFOs and the possibility of extraterrestrials. But with over a year left until the election, there’s a pretty good chance that the question comes out.

What do you think?

I’ve got to say that I am one who has seen an actual UFO in flight. During the mid-1980’s in the Putnam/Marion County areas of Florida, there was extensive UFO activity in which CB radios were made useless and the electrical grid near the town of Salt Springs, FL became (what was claimed to be) a “refueling” stop for the UFO’s resulting in outages and brown outs. Two UFO’s were in that area of the Ocala National Forest during the late evenings and night times for several days. My wife, daughter and I saw a single UFO in Satsuma, FL… Read more »

Saw one in the late 40’s when I was about 9. Thought it was the sun but moving faster. Could have not been the sun because I could look straight at it and it was moving SE to NW. Never thought much about it until later in my life when I read about a “saucer flap” in southern Michigan at the time. The Government said it was “swamp gas”.

I want George to do an expose on Trump’s favorite color.

So Trump admits to skepticism. Break out the international headlines.

I’ve participated in parapsychological, Sasquatch, and other investigations. Color me skeptical, but open-minded.

Is this news? No.

Is this news? Doubtful.

Vertically-challenged George, were he an akshul journalist and not a partisan tool, might question beliefs in Islam, Bigfoot, the Russian collusion/obstruction delusions, or warmism.

But he will never do so.

Perhaps UFOs explain the “pod people” mentality seen more and more frequently on Capitol Hill.
