Donald Trump Says He Will 'Take A Good, Strong Look' At Whether UFOs Exist

Donald Trump Says He Will 'Take A Good, Strong Look' At Whether UFOs Exist

There's no denying there is a lot on Donald Trump's lap at the moment: the November election, the coronavirus pandemic, ensuring America is made great again.

But he's revealed he wants to take on another mission and it's something rather niche for a sitting US President.

During an interview with Fox News, the Commander in Chief was asked by host Maria Bartiromo 'are there UFOs?' following reports the US department of defense had created a taskforce to investigate reported UFO sightings.

The seemingly left-of-field question came from reports the Defense Department had formed a new body to investigate, monitor and track reported sightings of unidentified flying objects.

Trump replied with: "Well I'm gonna have to check on that. I mean, I've heard that. I heard that two days ago, so I'll check on that. I'll take a good, strong look at that.

"But I will tell you this. We now have created a military the likes of which we have never had before, in terms of equipment, the equipment that we have, the weapons that we have."

Some interpreted that this was meant as a threat to any aliens listening to Fox News on Sunday (11 October) that if they tried to meddle with Earth they would have an Independence Day-level response from America.

But Trump double-downed on his military might claim to also warn potential human enemies.

Donald Trump Says Getting Coronavirus Was A 'Blessing From God'

"Russia, China, they're all envious of what we've had. All built in the USA. We've rebuilt it, $2.5 trillion. As far as the other question, I'll check on it. I heard about it two days ago actually," he said on Fox News.

The Pentagon declassified three Navy videos earlier this year showing unidentified flying objects hurtling through the sky.

In a statement, the Department of Defense (DOD) says the videos were taken in 2004 and 2005 and had been leaked by an unknown source between 2007 and 2017.

After reviewing the footage, authorities reckon it's now safe for everyone around the world to gaze and wonder what the hell has been captured in the footage.

Trump has previously doubted whether aliens exist.

During an interview with ABC News last year, he revealed he had a meeting to discuss the US Navy reports of UFOs.

He told the news outlet: "I think it's probably - I want them to think whatever they think. They do say, and 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."
