President Donald Trump is the only authority that has the power to decline thousands of classified JFK files from being opened. However, Trump turned to his Twitter account to inform the public that he is not going to deny the truth to the people. Therefore, Americans will finally be close to learning more details about the assassination of the 35th President of the United States.
3,000 Classified JFK Files Have High Chances to Be Made Public This Thursday
This Thursday, the law will require authorities to make around 3,000 classified documents public. All these reports have hundreds of thousands of pages that describe each known detail about the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
The bill in question appeared in 1992 under the name of JFK Assassination Records Collection Act. The text forces officials to disclose the collection of documents on its 25th anniversary, which is 26th October.
The President of the United States is the only person in the country that can deny this imperative. While Donald Trump admitted on Twitter that he has no objection so far to this law, he can still choose to withhold certain files from the public eye.
“Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened.”
Historians Believe the Documents Would Offer More Details but Not the Entire Truth
On Saturday, a White House representative gave further explanations to Trump’s direction regarding this event. The President embraced transparency in this case.
However, federal agencies still have time to present their case and persuade Donald Trump that some piece of information should remain classified. These justifications need to invoke law enforcement infringement or national security concerns to be taken into consideration.
On the other hand, national historians don’t believe that the thousands of hundreds of pages are going to reveal the ultimate truth. Instead, the classified JDK files will help them learn and perceive the nuances of the events that led to the assassination of the 35th President.
One of the most ardent matters that need clarification is the nature of Lee Harvey Oswald’s trip to Mexico only weeks before he committed murder. Some believe the answer to this question is going to widen even more the problems between Mexico and the United States.
