President Donald Trump announced via Twitter this morning that he will, subject to new information, release the “long blocked and classified” files on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy
Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened.

The release by the National Archives would be October 26th, according to CBS News.
There are reportedly more than 3,000 yet unseen files from the 30,000+ in total.
Speculation, conspiracy theories and a plethora of documentaries have been made about the events surrounding Kennedy’s killing.
Many unanswered questions focus on Lee Harvey Oswald’s trip to Mexico City prior to the assassination during which he reportedly visited Cuban and Soviet Union embassies.
