Former President Donald Trump pledged to make public all files on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy if he is re-elected in November.

“This time I’ll just do it,” Trump promised during a taping of an episode of the All-In podcastwhich was released on Thursday.

Co-host Chamath Palihapitiya asked the former president and presumptive Republican nominee what was in the JFK files that Trump didn’t make public during his first term.

The former president said he was encouraged to keep some of the information about the Kennedy assassination secret, and then made a bold claim about who was responsible for any cover-up.

“Well, it wasn’t the CIA that asked me, but I think the CIA was probably behind this,” Trump said. “They wouldn’t have preferred me not to publish the rest.”

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is running against Trump and President Joe Biden as an independent presidential candidate, has claimed that the CIA was involved in his uncle’s assassination.

Podcasters asked Trump about RFK Jr.’s claims when he mentioned the CIA.

That same month, the National Archives released some 19,000 records.

‘Actually I did. I threw a lot, as you know, but when it came down to it, I got hit by some people who work for me, who are great people who you would respect. They asked me not to do it,’ Trump recalled.

And I say, “Why? Tell me why?” and they told me: “Sir, I think you need a little more time,” the former president continued.

“And I released a lot, but I said, if they feel it that strongly, I respect people and I would have done it again,” he said.

He then promised that, if re-elected, he would make the rest of Kennedy’s files public.

“This will be done from the beginning,” he added. “A lot of people want to see that and whatever I say – I won’t say it, I have an idea – but whatever it is it will be very interesting for people to see and we are going to have to learn from it.” he.’

As the podcasters began to change the subject, Trump chimed in: “There’s other things we’re going to put out there, too.”

“We’ll talk to you about this off camera,” he joked.
