President Trump lambasted CBS News’s “60 Minutes” on Sunday after an interview with his former cybersecurity chief was broadcast on the program.
Trump, in a tweet Sunday evening, accused producers of the program of not contacting the White House for comment regarding the remarks made by Christopher Krebs, formerly head of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, on the integrity of the 2020 election.
Recall that Trump had fired Krebs earlier this month after Krebs said the election was “the most secure in American history.”
The president has baselessly claimed for weeks that the 2020 election was stolen by his opponent, President-elect Joe Biden, via massive unreported voter fraud in key swing states.
“.@60Minutes never asked us for a comment about their ridiculous, one sided story on election security, which is an international joke. Our 2020 Election, from poorly rated Dominion to a Country FLOODED with unaccounted for Mail-In ballots, was probably our least secure EVER!” the president claimed Sunday evening.
Krebs told CBS News in an interview which aired Sunday that he stands by what he said defending the integrity of the 2020 election, which the president Trump pointed to when firing him as director of the cybersecurity agency earlier in November.
“We did a good job. We did it right. I’d do it a thousand times over,” he said in the interview.
