When it comes to UFOs, President Trump says you can count on him to keep America in the loop.

Trump says in a new interview that he has had a meeting about a unexplained surge in reports of possible extraterrestrial objects — but he doesn’t “particularly” believe them.

““So we’re going to see. We’re watching, and you’ll be the first to know,” the president told ABC’s George Stephanopolous in an interview airing Sunday night.

“People are saying they’re seeing UFOs. Do I believe it? Not particularly,” Trump said.

“Well, I think my great pilots would know," Trump said. "Our great pilots would know.”

Some on Twitter had an alternative explanation.
