The President himself wasn't too elated. he was elated more with the artifacts in the cave.

In the New Mexican desert appeared one day President John F. Kennedy. The exact date was June 5th, 1963. His trip to the White Sands Missile Range, in the aftermath of the Cuban Missile Crisis, meant to publicly show his continued support towards defense. John Clarence and Tom Whittle, authors of the Gold House Trilogy, believe it also meant to cover up the removal of gold from the infamous Victorio Peak gold treasure.

"We have Kennedy arrive, give speeches, and shake some hands while checking out missile demonstrations. Then he goes over to the site that army records indicate was to be a proposed landing area for returning spacecraft," says John Clarence, "the landing area was Victorio Peak." A source in the Gold House Trilogy (Book II: The Lies, the Thefts) is identified as a Central Intelligence Agency officer having served the President during these visits to White Sands Missile Range. He allegedly visited the site prior to Kennedy's arrival and inspected it for gold. John Clarence interviewed this man, here is part of the transcript from the book:

"Clarence: Did anyone say anything that referred to the treasure that you described?
Mr. H: The President himself wasn't too elated. He was elated more with the artifacts in the cave."

After Kennedy's assassination in Texas, the authors argue, Lyndon B. Johnson became involved with the removal of the ancient gold treasure. "Once the top levels of the federal government learned about Victorio Peak, the area became quite inaccessible" comments John Clarence. The Noss family, who have claimed the treasure since the 20th century, allege in the series a secret meeting between Ova Noss and JFK was to take place in Denver after his Dallas tour. However, President Kennedy never made that meeting. The fate of the treasure can be found in the Gold House Trilogy.
