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.
