US President fires Homeland Security Cybersecurity chief

Vastavam web: US President Donald Trump fired the country’s top cybersecurity official on Tuesday over a statement he made about the Nov. 3 presidential election. In a tweet, Trump said that Chris Krebs, the director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), had been terminated “effective immediately.” “Therefore, effective immediately, Chris Krebs has been terminated as Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency,” he added. His dismissal came days after CISA said the presidential race was the most secure in US history, a statement that Trump has long disputed since the beginning of vote counting. The statement said there is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.
