President Trump said he’s been briefed on Navy pilots reported sightings of unidentified flying objects, but remained skeptical of the existence of UFOs.

George Stephanopoulos of ABC News raised the issue during an interview with Trump released Saturday.

“I was struck in the last few couple of weeks, we’re reading more and more reports of Navy pilots seeing lots and lots of UFOs,” Stephanopoulos said to a smiling Trump. “Have you been briefed on that? What do you make of it?”

“I want them to think whatever they think,” Trump replied, referring to the Navy pilots. “I did have one very brief meeting on it. But people are saying they’re seeing UFOs. Do I believe it? Not particularly.”

The Navy recently announced it would update guidelines for how its pilots report “unidentified aircraft” in response to reports of strange sightings. Navy strike group pilots reported seeing strange objects flying above 30,000 feet at hypersonic speeds with no visible engine or infrared exhaust fumes, according to the New York Times.

The new protocol doesn’t mean Navy officials believe in UFOs, but “rather that the strange sightings warrant an investigation and need to be formally documented.”

Asked if he knew if there was evidence of extraterrestrial life, Trump said “I think our great pilots would know. And some of them see things a little bit different from the past. We’re watching, and you’ll be the first to know.”

    That would be a “Damned if you do, damned if you don’t” answer.

      Agreed. This does seem to fall in that line
      …especially with Stephanopoulos asking!!

    Why did the President let this jerk in his office in the first place? He is a Clinton has been and walking around the Presidents desk like he was totally in charge. He is nothing but trouble.

      He likes a good challenge, wants to show he is fair,
      wants to be transparent, and wants to show he is
      smarter than someone with an obvious agenda.

    A UFO is just that.It’s an object, it’s flying and we don’t know what it is. That does not automatically mean it is an alien spacecraft that came from another world. It could be a great number of things from right here on earth. Of course that doesn’t mean it’s not an alien spacecraft either.

    If Trump had said he believed in aliens, I’m sure the Dems would have gleefully said, “Now we got him… see, he is crazy, now we can impeach him!” Poor Dems, it must be so hard having to work day in and day out trashing and spreading lies and falsehoods about him, but I suppose it is easier than having to actually do your job…

    Actually, we all know there are UFOs. They came from their galaxies far, far away and deposited insane Democrats in the US. The ETs couldn’t stomach them either.

    I’m sure half of the country knows, all snuffleupagus is doing
    is trying to find material to use on his show and station, to
    show more disrespect to the President.

    The disgusting part of it all is how the leftist media
    is shaping and molding our youth and students…

    I see proof every time I see students interviewed.
    They are asked racist or terrible questions, or
    told about racist or terrible statements or quotes,
    and when asked, they all say, “Sounds like Trump”…

    THEN, the interviewer actually says, “What would you say,
    if I told you Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, or Clinton
    said that”?

    Of course, the student instantly turns into an idiot.
    They giggle, they look like a deer in the headlights.

    Do you know why?
    It’s because they are being molded and shaped and formed
    by the very educational system we all pay into.
    Which is Liberally controlled…

    Nice, huh?
