Now that Donald Trump looks set to leave the White House in January, many are pointing to the possibility that the president will declassify intelligence files on many mysterious issues, including UFOs.
Conservative commentator Mike Cernovich tweeted:
Trump is still POTUS *. He can post any information he wants via Twitter. It’s literally legal for him to leave anything – UFO files, stuff from Russia, total discretion,
*President of the United States
The possibility seems to be on many people’s minds after several media outlets called for the 2020 presidential election for Democrat Joe Biden.
Trump should tell all the secrets of the world on his way out
I need everything the White House has about UFOs
I would definitely start talking about UFOs and aliens from the past if I were Trump now
Trump touched on the topic of UFOs on several occasions. As reported by ABC News, he talked about Roswell during a Father’s Day themed interview with his son, who put pressure on New Mexico City, which is known for its proximity to one of the most famous UFO events in popular culture.
The president spoke about Roswell:
I’m not going to talk to you about what I know about this, but it is very interesting.
Trump was also pressured about the existence of UFOs during a interview in October with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News, informed the Insider:
I mean, I already heard that. I heard that two days ago, so I’ll check it out. I’ll take a good look at this.
Trump pointed to the U.S. military and suggested that he take advantage of them to examine the existence of extraterrestrial life.
Elsewhere, Trump has been skeptical. During a interview with George Stephanopoulos in June 2019, he pointed to pilot sightings, but he didn’t seem convinced.
They say, and I saw it, and I read it, and I heard it, and I had a very brief meeting about it. But people are saying that they are seeing UFOs. Do I believe that? Not particularly.
Trump’s ally, Tucker Carlson, stated last month that there is plenty of evidence to prove the existence of UFOs. The presenter of Fox News spoke to James Fox, director of the documentary called The Phenomenon, which addressed former Democratic Senator Harry Reid’s claim that UFOs have interfered with American nuclear capabilities throughout history.
Carlson also spoke to the former Defense Department officer, Christopher Mellon, who praised the Dr. Jacque Vallee, which collected metal debris that allegedly came from a UFO.
Last April, the Pentagon disqualified three videos of what are believed to be UFOs captured by US Navy infrared cameras. The videos were unofficially published for the first time in December 2017 and March 2018 by To The Stars Academy, which was founded by former Blink-182 member Tom DeLonge.
