NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) At a news conference promoting his new film "Independence Day: Resurgence", Hollywood director Roland Emmerich jokingly compared presumptive Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump to an alien. A journalist made reference to Trump being an 'allged extraterrestrial' and then asked Emmerich if he would leave the country if Trump were to become President. In response Emmerich said: 'Well, it could happen. It would explain so much. Underneath that hair is an extraterrestrial.' The plot of "Independence Day: Resurgence" picks up 20 years after the original 1996 space invasion adventure 'Independence Day'. The new film is scheduled to be released later this month.
