In an unexpected interview by his son, President Trump acknowledges that there is some information still classified about the Roswell incident, 73 years after the event.
To distill this short conversation down to the parts that are significant:
His response to the question “What’s going on with Roswell?”
“… I won’t talk to you about what I know about it but it’s very interesting. But Roswell is a very interesting place…”
And more importantly “So you’re saying you may declassify…?”
Trump: “Well, I’ll have to think about that one…”
The reason this is significant is that this response is in stark contrast to other presidents’ responses. Historically, there has been “interest” by other presidents and presidents-to-be, but always without acknowledgement of Roswell. This may seem like a subtle and insignificant difference, but it isn’t.
Compare it to the response of other presidents and you will find they neither confirm nor deny anything:
Obama: “I can’t reveal anything.”
Bush Jr.: “But I’m not tellin’ ya…. I’m not tellin’ ya nothin'”
Kimmel: Are there any great secrets that you know that you can’t share?
Bush Jr.: “Yeah, there are.”
Oddly, I can’t find the Jimmy Kimmel interview with president elect Hillary Clinton, but I did document this ABC report:
It behooves me to include here that this statement by Trump contradict the idea of anything “interesting” with respect to the UFO issue, saying he “doesn’t particularly believe in UFOs”:
A pattern I have found is that these presidents and presidential candidates often seem to hint at UFOs or Roswell when there’s an election within the year. So this is probably nothing more than a political play to appeal to the UFO enthusiast demographic.
Trump Jr: “So last question. Before you leave office, will you let us know if there’s aliens, because this is the only thing I really want to know. I want to know what’s going on. Would you ever open up Roswell and let us know what’s going on there?”
Trump: “So many people ask me that question.”
Trump Jr: “I know it sounds almost ridiculous, but it’s actually the real question I want to know.”
Trump: “It sounds like a cute question but it’s actually… There are millions and millions of people that wanna go there. That want to see it. I won’t talk to you about what I know about it but it’s very interesting. But Roswell is a very interesting place with a lot of people that would like to know what’s going on.”
Trump Jr: “So you’re saying you may declassify… you’ll take it?”
Trump: “Well, I’ll have to thing about that one… I’ll have to think about it.”
