In a recent Tweet, President Trump announced that his pick to be the nation’s spy czar believes that digital and cyber attacks are a bigger threat than illegal immigrants that want to cross the border into the United States.
Trump wants to replace departing Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and put Rep. John Ratcliffe in his place.
“the greatest threats we face as a nation no longer come across our physical borders. They come across our digital borders,” stated Trump.
“I am pleased to announce that highly respected Congressman John Ratcliffe of Texas will be nominated by me to be the Director of National Intelligence. A former U.S. Attorney, John will lead and inspire greatness for the Country he loves…” Trump tweeted.
“I am deeply grateful to President Trump for the opportunity to lead our Nation’s intelligence community and work on behalf of all the public servants who are tirelessly devoted to defending the security and safety of the United States.” John Tatcliffe tweeted back.
He has been a big proponent of upgrading U.S. data networks and key infrastructures to secure us from any cyber attacks.
