DESERET NEWS: "Is There a Conservative Position on UFOs and Aliens?"

From Jennifer Graham's 6-4-21 DESERET NEWS article entitled "Is There a Conservative Position on UFOs and Aliens?":

Is there a partisan divide when it comes to ET?

While there’s no official party line on the subject, some big names have been talking about UFOs lately, including Harry Reid and Donald Trump, and even a prominent journal of conservative thought has taken on the topic.

Reid, the former Democratic leader of the Senate, has said he is fascinated by UFOs, having grown up in rural Nevada, a few hours’ drive away from the Extraterrestrial Highway that leads to Area 51, a classified U.S. Air Force facility. In 2007, Reid was one of three lawmakers (two Republicans and a Democrat) who helped to secure funding for the study of UFOs.

Trump, the former president, recently sounded skeptical of extraterrestrial visitors in an interview, saying that he doesn’t want to ruin anyone’s fun, but that he is “not such a believer.”

“I’m sort of a believer in what you see,” Trump said recently on the “Dan Bongino Show.” “But some people are. I don’t want to hurt their dreams or their fears.”
