Trump fired the head of the US cybersecurity agency for speaking about fair elections
US President Donald Trump dismissed the head of the US cybersecurity agency Chris Krebs over the words about fair vote count in the last elections. The corresponding post appeared on the Twitter account of the American leader.
“Chris Krebs’s recent statement on the security of the 2020 elections was extremely inaccurate, as there were massive violations and fraud, including voting of“ dead souls ”, observers were not allowed to polling stations, there were glitches in voting machines that changed votes from Trump on Biden. (…) Therefore, from today, Chris Krebs was fired, ”the head of state wrote. At the same time, he confirmed that the agency coped with the task of protecting the elections from interference from other states.
The cybersecurity agency is known to have created a Rumor control page to combat fake information. In particular, they refuted theories of voter fraud. CNN clarifies that this worried the White House.
On November 7, Democratic candidate Joe Biden, with 290 electoral votes against 270 required, declared himself elected President of the United States. Trump, in turn, said he hopes to regain his leading position in several states through the courts. He believes that Biden hastened to call himself the new leader of the country, since the elections are not over yet.
