WASHINGTON (Reuters) – US President Donald Trump said on Saturday that, subject to receipt of further information, he planned to allow the opening of long-secret files on the 1963 assassination of President John F Kennedy due for release this week. Politico magazine earlier quoted Trump administration and other US government officials as saying the president would almost certainly block the release of information from some of the thousands of classified files, which the US National Archives is scheduled to make public by Thursday. “Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened,” Mr Trump said in a tweet. Surveys have shown a majority of Americans still distrust official evidence pointing to Lee Harvey Oswald as the sole killer.
