Donald Trump commented on the three declassified Pentagon videos taken by US Navy pilots that show “unidentified aerial phenomena”, which some say are UFOs. The President wondered if the images were real. He called it “a video hell”. The videos included the famous clip “Tic Tac”, shot by pilot Chad Underwood in 2004.
“It’s a hell of a video. “
The clips show three separate incidents involving “unidentified aerial phenomena”, one from November 2004 and two from January 2015.
Trump said just a year ago that he did not believe in the existence of UFOs.

He told George Stephanopoulos in an interview with ABC News: “They say, and I saw, and I read, and I heard, and I had a very brief meeting on this subject. But people say they ‘see UFOs.
“Do I believe it?” Not particularly. “
A Defense Department spokesperson said on Monday in a statement: “The US Navy has previously acknowledged that these videos in the public domain are indeed Navy videos.
“The DOD distributes the videos in order to dispel any misconceptions from the public as to whether the images that circulated were real or not, or whether the videos contain more.
“I see this little white object. It moves randomly.
“It initially looked like a 7-47 aircraft, in size, pointing east. It looked like it had wings.
“The little white ticking is what we called.
“He didn’t change direction. The first thing we thought of was, “Oh, it’s a helicopter.”
“I say,” What is that ?! It literally looked like a ticking. ”
