In Dan Bongino’s new radio show debut he started things off right by making his first interview with President Trump.
Bongino and Trump talked about a slew of topics but with all the recent hype surrounding the Pentagon’s upcoming report to Congress on the topic of UFOS, Dan Bongino couldn’t resist and asked President Trump whether or not UFOs exist.
President Trump replied by saying “I’m a believer in what you see, but there are a lot people out there who are into that”.
Bongino didn’t let up and asked again “Is it true, sir?”.
In which Trump replied “I’m not such a believer, but some people are, so I don’t want to hurt their dreams or their fears. It could be fears more than dreams.”

The Independent covered the story and had this to say:
During an interview on Dan Bongino’s new radio show, Donald Trump was asked about the existence of UFOs in light of the upcoming release of a report on the phenomena.
In the first episode of Mr Bongino’s show in what was Rush Limbaugh’s timeslot, the conservative host asked the former president if there was something that the government wasn’t telling the public about unidentified flying objects.
“I’m a believer in what you see, but there are a lot people out there who are into that. I get that do much: ‘is it true, sir?” said Mr Trump.
“I’m not such a believer, but some people are, so I don’t want to hurt their dreams or their fears. It could be fears more than dreams.”
In June, the Pentagon is scheduled to release a report to Congress compiled by the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force.
More credence has been given to the phenomena in recent years since the release of military footage of fast-moving airborne objects off both the east and west coasts of the US.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio, the most senior Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, is leading the push for more investigation into the sightings.
This was not the first time that Mr Trump has been asked about UFOs.
In October 2020, Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo asked the then-president why the Department of Defense had set up a UFO task force and whether this implied that the government acknowledged their existence.
“Well, I’m going to have to check on that,” he replied. “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.”

The Express reported the story too:
The former President ordered the Department of Defence to publish all findings on “unidentified aerial phenomena” in his December coronavirus relief bill. The Pentagon are set to hand their findings to Congress in June, with Mr Trump finally addressing his ordered-report into possible alien sightings.
Mr Trump appeared on the first episode of US conservative Dan Bongino’s radio show to discuss the alien report.
The former President told the radio host: “I’m a believer in what you see, but there are a lot of people out there who are into that.
“I get that so much: ‘is it true, sir?’
“I’m not such a believer, but some people are, so I don’t want to hurt their dreams or their fears.
“It could be fears more than dreams.”
