In a new interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, President Donald Trump weighed in on the existence of unidentified flying objects in our planet’s skies.

His comments came on the heels of recent reports by Navy pilots who said they saw “strange objects” flying at supersonic speeds and heights topping 30,000 feet.

“I think it’s probably — I want them to think whatever they think,” Trump said of such reports. “They do say, and I’ve seen, and I’ve read, and I’ve heard.”

He went on to confirm that he “did have one very brief meeting” on the subject, but added that he is not convinced of their existence.

“Do I believe it?” Trump asked. “Not particular.”

As for whether he would know if such unexplained craft were real, he signaled that he believes so.

“Well, I think my great pilots would know,” he said. “Our great pilots would know. They see things a little bit different from the past. So we’re going to see. We’re watching and you’ll be the first to know.”
