One of the biggest mysteries over the last 50 years has been the events surrounding the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy. While the United States government has long stood by the results of the Warren Commission, many don't believe the findings and came close to possibly finding out more information.

Trump and JFK

On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Caroline Kennedy rode in the back of a 1961 Lincoln Continental with Texas Gov. John Connally and his wife sitting up front. The president was campaigning in the Lone Star State as he prepped for his re-election bid taking place the following year.

What started out as a beautiful Texas day quickly changed course when three shots were fired at the vehicle. Gov. Connally and Kennedy were both hit, though the president was the only one who's injuries were fatal. Over the course of the next year, a committee was put together to investigate the assassination, lead by its chairman Chief Justice Earl Warren. The committee's conclusion found that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone gunman responsible, though various reports and studies have attempted to disproof the government's final say. While some so-called "conspiracies" have been debunked and dismissed, others continue to raise questions with over 60 percent of the American people doubting the Warren Commission in a poll by Gallup.

In 1992, thousands of documents were kept hidden in regards to the assassination, though a 25-year expiration date was applied which was set to be lifted on Thursday. Current President Donald Trump promised to release them all, but ended up keeping the majority of the documents private, as reported by NBC News on October 26.

Earlier this week, Donald Trump announced that he would allow the release all of thousands of previously hidden documents that could shed light on some of the questions surrounding the assassination of John F.

Kennedy. On Wednesday, Trump took to Twitter to confirm the release, tweeting, "The long anticipated release of the #JFKFiles will take place tomorrow. So interesting!"

Despite this, Donald Trump had a last minute change of heart after reported pressure from the CIA and others who warned that the release of the documents could put the United States' national security at risk. As expected, social media wasn't pleased.

Twitter reacts

As the news broke that Donald Trump had reneged on his promise to release the Jfk files to the public, social media went viral in their displeasure.

"White House is not releasing all the JFK files. Looks like Trump is a CIA cuck," Washington bureau chief of Mother Jones David Corn tweeted out.

"Why is Trump hiding the JFK files? Did Rafael Cruz pay him off?" Daily Wire founded Ben Shapiro sarcastically posted. "The president teased what sounded like a full release of the JFK files.

That's not what we are getting," CNN's Jim Acosta tweeted out.

"I find it hard to believe that there’s a compelling national security threat 54 years after the fact," Josh Billinson added.

"Donald Trump couldn't even handle getting JFK documents released. How is he suppose to handle something big, like North Korea?" another social media user wrote. As the negative reaction continued, the questions surrounding the death of JFK remain unanswered.
