United States President Donald Trump has fired Christopher Krebs, the head of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).

The senior Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official had led efforts to protect the voting process for the November 3 election.

On Tuesday, Krebs, in a tweet, refuted 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'”, he wrote.

Reacting, Trump faulted the CISA head Kreb’s position, which debunked his insistence that irregularities were perpetrated in Joe Biden’s favour.

The American leader still maintains the former Vice President did not win and says that he will prove it.

“The recent statement by Chris Krebs on the security of the 2020 Election was highly inaccurate, in that there were massive improprieties and fraud — including dead people voting, Poll Watchers not allowed into polling locations, ‘glitches’ in the voting machines which changed votes from Trump to Biden, late voting, and many more.”

“Therefore, effective immediately, Chris Krebs has been terminated as Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.”, Trump tweeted.

According to Washington Post, the acting DHS Secretary, Chad Wolf, told Krebs’s deputy, Matthew Travis, that the White House had overruled CISA’s succession plan that named him acting director, essentially forcing him to resign.
