This is simply an orchestration of tactical advantage to the Extraterrestrial Alliance. They are seeking, now, after this year-long controversial presidency on the heels of the shocking defeat of the Democratic candidate, to burnish his image a bit to make him more palatable to a wider array of figures. This is tactical because it will be a prelude to a more severe global disruption for which they need the population to buy-in with the presidential response and strategy that comes forward. Their current thinking is to brew up a different calamity of even greater potential threat. This will require a correspondingly greater military response if it reaches that threshold. So this is the reason why things have cooled down.
