President Donald Trump has made a pledge to the American people in an interview with The Messenger published on Monday. He has promised to release the “remaining portion” of the classified files surrounding the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy, but only if he is elected for a second term. Trump had already released approximately 2,800 records back in 2017. However, he extended the retention of some of the documents, claiming he had “no choice”. Trump then established a new deadline of three years for the files to be released in 2018. Presently, President Joe Biden released more than 12,000 files in 2021 and 2022.

But Trump has promised that he will release the remaining files of JFK should he win his second term in 2024. “I released a lot, as you know. And I will release everything else,” Trump stated during the interview. “I will release the remaining portion very early in my term.” Trump declined to answer whether or not these files would make the U.S. “appear awful” or scare the public.
The files that Trump and Biden have released have shown that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had monitored alleged Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald when he was in Mexico City in the weeks before the murder. It was also shown in the documents that Oswald was planning to defect to Cuba. The papers also indicated that top officials had thought about orchestrating a false flag attack on American or allied bases to prompt war with the Soviet Union.
One longstanding fan of alternative Kennedy assassination theories is Trump, who accused Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s father Rafael of being an Oswald associate. “His father was with Lee Harvey Oswald before Oswald’s being — you know, shot. I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous,” Trump told Fox News. “What is this, right prior to his being shot, and nobody even brings it up? They don’t even talk about that. That was reported, and nobody talks about it. I mean, what was he doing with Lee Harvey Oswald shortly before the death? Before the shooting?” The Cruz campaign has stated that the allegations are “garbage in a tabloid full of garbage”.
President Donald Trump stands firm in his mission to reveal the truth to the American people. In 2024, if elected for his second term, the remaining JFK files will be released, bringing transparency and clarity to one of America’s greatest mysteries.
