HRMS, the late NASA SETI program, was cancelled by congress. The president has very little input on such deicision. Nevertheless, a pro-SETI president can exert lhat little influence he or she yields. I no of no presidential candidate who has issued a position paper on SETI -- frankly, it would probably be politically unwise to take a stand on controversial (and expensive) science.
