With Trump's presidency nearing an end, could now be the ideal time for him to disclose America's UFO files ?
To say that things didn't go according to plan for President Donald Trump in the election would be an understatement, and while his days in the White House may be numbered, some have speculated that one of the things he could do before he goes is declassify sensitive government documents pertaining to the UFO phenomenon.
"Trump is still POTUS," conservative commentator Mike Cernovich wrote on Twitter.
"He can release any information he wants via Twitter. Literally it's legal for him to drop anything - UFO files, Russia stuff, total discretion."
It's an idea that has been doing the rounds on social media today with several people suggesting that now would be a good time for Trump to spill the beans on what the government knows about UFOs.
"Trump needs to go on Rogan and start dropping all the Real X-Files info. UFOs, 911, JFK.....leak it ALL," one Twitter user - @ManuvSteele - wrote yesterday.
"I'd definitely start talking about UFOs and ancient aliens if I was Trump right now," added @Donald_JL00.
Trump has previously spoken several times about the topic - in particular when questioned about it during interviews - but has never confirmed or denied anything specific.
Back in June, he had been participating in a Father's Day-themed interview with his own son, Don Trump Jr., when he was asked about the alleged UFO crash at Roswell, New Mexico.
"There are millions and millions of people who want to go [to Roswell], who want to see it," Trump replied. "I won't talk to you about what I know about it, but it's very interesting."
"Roswell is a very interesting place with a lot people who would like to know what's going on."
When asked if he would ever consider declassifying information on the matter, he replied: "Well, I'll have to think about that one."
