Trump fires top election official after Twitter comments defending integrity of 2020 election

If America has learned anything about President Donald Trump during his first term in the White House, it’s that he’s definitely not afraid to stir the political pot bby firing top officials in his administration.

According to The Blaze, that’s what happened this week as the president informed Christopher Krebs, the head of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, that he was no longer employed after refuting the president’s claims that the 2020 election was rigged.

The situation unfolded in the wake of a report last week from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency indicating that the 2020 election “was the most secure in American history.”

On Tuesday, Krebs retweeted a blog post that was signed by a number of security experts who affirmed that there was no instances of widespread computer-related election fraud in the 2020 election. Krebs added commentary to the post — commentary which, hours later, would lead to his termination.

“ICYMI: On allegations that election systems were manipulated, 59 election security experts all agree, ‘in every case of which we are aware, these claims either have been unsubstantiated or are technically incoherent.'” Krebs tweeted.

On Tuesday afternoon, the president fired back at Krebs in a tweet that not only informed the Cybersecurity head that he was now unemployed, but also one that insisted that widespread computer fraud did, in fact, take place.

According to the Washington Post, Krebs was not surprised that the president had terminated him. He’d reportedly told his associates last week that his termination was expected shortly.

The terminated CISA official tweeted later from his personal account, writing “Honored to serve. We did it right. Defend Today, Secure Tomrorow. #Protect2020.”

The mainstream media called the election in favor of former Vice President Joe Biden, however, Trump’s army of lawyers continue to attempt to challenge the 2020 election results in a number of crucial swing states.
