President BidenJoe BidenHaiti prime minister warns inequality will cause migration to continue Pelosi: House must pass 3 major pieces of spending legislation this week Erdoğan says Turkey plans to buy another Russian defense system MORE on Friday laughed off a question about unidentified objects in the sky when asked about former President Obama's comments earlier in the week about UFOs.

Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy brought up Obama's comments at the end of a press conference with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

"What is true, and I'm actually being serious here, is that there are, there's footage and records of objects in the skies, that we don't know exactly what they are. We can't explain how they moved, their trajectory," Obama said on "The Late Late Show" earlier in the week. "They did not have an easily explainable pattern. And so, you know, I think that people still take seriously trying to investigate and figure out what that is."

Asked what he made of the flying objects, Biden laughed and said, "I would ask him again," before walking off the stage.

The topic of UFOs has reappeared in the news after a "60 Minutes" piece in which a retired Navy lieutenant described seeing unidentified aerial phenomenon "every day for at least a couple of years."

The Office of Director of National Intelligence and Secretary of Defense are required to provided congressional committees next month with an unclassified report on UFOs.
