Trump says he's heard 'interesting' things about Roswell
President Donald Trump says he has heard some interesting things about Roswell, but he doesn't even share it with his oldest child.
Trump made the comments Thursday in an interview on Father's Day with his son Don Trump Jr., which was hosted by the President's re-election campaign. Don Jr. ended his interview by jokingly asking his father / president if he would ever disclose more information about Roswell, the city in New Mexico known for its proximity to the most famous UFO event - "and leave us know what's really going on. "
Trump replied, "I'm not going to talk to you about what I know about it, but it's very interesting."

In 1947, a rancher discovered unidentifiable debris on his sheep pasture outside of Roswell. Air force officials said it was a crashed weather balloon, but skeptics asked if it was actually an alien flying saucer. Decades later, the U.S. military admitted that the debris was related to a top-secret nuclear project. Nevertheless, the UFO theory has flourished.
The President has been skeptical about the possibility of something out there in the past. Last year, Trump said he had received a brief briefing on the UFO sighting, but also offered, "People say they see UFOs. I don't particularly believe it."
After his father offered to hear some "interesting" things about Roswell, Trump Jr. asked the president to release this information one day.
"Well, I have to think about it," replied the President.
Trump also announced that he had seen "a few" episodes of Netflix's "Tiger King." Joseph Maldonado-Passage, known as Joe Exotic, the star of the popular documentaries, is serving a 22-year prison sentence after being convicted of hiring a killer to murder a rival, the animal rights activist.
Trump said during a press conference in April that he was unfamiliar with the "Tiger King" when asked about Don Jr., who jokingly said on a radio show that he apologized to the President for the Maldonado passage.
The president didn't say when he was considering a pardon on Thursday, but sounded intrigued by the Maldonado passage.
"It's a very strange thing," said Trump. "I will tell you that this is a strange guy and a lot of strange people surround him."
