President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he will release the long-blocked government documents on the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy on Thursday, describing it as "so interesting."

Here is Trump's tweet:

Trump tweeted Saturday that he would allow the release of the documents, as prescribed by the 1992 Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act, "subject to the receipt of further information."

The law, inspired in part by Oliver Stone's movie "JFK" from the year before, specified that the final pages of the records be made public Thursday unless a current president decided otherwise.

They are held by the National Archives and Records Administration.

The National Security Council had objected to the files being released, citing concerns about sources and investigative techniques.

Experts say that 3,100 files remain to be released, containing tens of thousands of pages of material that have never been viewed by the public.

The National Archives has 30,000 more pages that were only partly released in the past.

The documents to be issued Thursday involve Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald's six-day trip to Mexico City two months before the president's assassination on Nov. 22, 1963, in Dallas, according to experts.

In addition, the papers are expected to show that the CIA was monitoring Oswald in Mexico and that the agency knew about his contacts with Cuba and the former Soviet Union.
