Buried in a recent interview between ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and President Trump was an overlooked and extremely weird discussion on the existence of extraterrestrials and the recent surge in reported unidentified flying objects (UFOs), which paints a telling portrait of a president entirely uninterested in anything that doesn’t particularly concern him or has anything he can twist to his own benefit and self-promotion.
A recent New York Times expose revealed that over the past decade or so, Navy pilots have reported visual sightings of mysterious flying objects, some of which could “[acclerate] to hypersonic speed, making sudden stops and instantaneous turns — something beyond the physical limits of a human crew.” One pilot reported a near collision with one such object.
Given the mystery surrounding the incidents and the monumental significance that the discovery of extraterrestrial visitors would have on human civilization, one might think that the President of the United States would show a tad of interest in it.

But Trump, who clearly had either not been briefed on the matter or simply wasn’t paying attention that day, showed a stunning lack of curiosity about the possible existence of aliens.
Instead, he made it clear that he thinks of the United States military as “his,” referring to “my” pilots before quickly correcting himself and saying “our pilots.” That kind of talk is unsurprising from the increasingly authoritarian Trump but still disturbing to hear from the leader of one of the world’s proudest democracies.
It’s also frankly disappointing to hear Trump say that he doesn’t believe in the existence of UFOs, since he apparently believes such wild conspiracy theories as “windmill noise cause cancer” and “asbestos is a “hoax invented by the Mafia.” If anything, Trump was going to be the UFO truther president who took it seriously, but it appears we can’t even count on him for that one little thing.
