President Trump removes US election cybersecurity chief

US President Donald Trump refusing to acknowledge that he was defeated by Democratic candidate Joe Biden has fired the country's chief election computer security director claiming that there was a massive election fraud

US President Trump announced on Twitter that he was firing Chris Krebs, the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden won a landslide victory over President Trump with 306 electoral votes in the US presidential election against 232 by Trump.

President Trump has not yet acknowledged defeat, calling postal voting illegal because of the Covid pandemic, and claiming that fraud had taken place through the computer system.

However, the ousted cybersecurity chief recently declared that the US presidential election as one of the safest in history.
