President Trump Elevates US Cyber Command to Unified Combatant Command

Today 45th President of the United States of America Donald J. Trump elevated the status of the Pentagon's United States Cyber Command center to help increase technological development of America’s cyber weapons and defenses in order to deter attacks, fight back against foreign hackers, and combat global cyber warfare

In his personal statement to the American People, President Trump said the newly restructured division would be enhanced at the level of “Unified Combatant Command” focused on cyberspace operations.

The Defense Secretary James Mattis is also now considering dividing the United States Cyber Command from the National Security Agency, in what many in the Administration are applauding as a victory against terror and a victory against the Deep State.

However the two Republican-In-Name-Only Senators,John McCain and Lindsey Graham, both strong voices on security matters, praised the move that they said would boost the command's abilities, but if course had criticisms to come from their never ending cries of a defeatist vendetta against President Trump.

<a href="">Traitor John McCain</a>, Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said that more steps are needed to meet the nation's cyber security challenges and protect it from future attacks coming from nations such as Russia.

"We must develop a clear policy and strategy for deterring and responding to cyber threats. We must also develop an integrated, whole-of-government approach to protect and defend the United States from cyberattacks," he said in a statement.

Originally established back in 2010, Cyber Command has in recent years been ranked below the United States Strategic Command, which is responsible for military space operations, nuclear weapons and missile defense at home and abroad.

While Cyber Command has an initiative now to shut down any threats to America and also counter cyber attacks, it's expected to now lead the way in international information defense.

The NSA's mission has always been to gather intelligence and generally favors monitoring enemies' cyber activities, however it has a ruthless reputation for invasiveness upon both Americans and sovereign entities.

<a href=""><h4>Statement by President Donald J. Trump on the Elevation of Cyber Command</h4></a>

<blockquote>”I have directed that United States Cyber Command be elevated to the status of a Unified Combatant Command focused on cyberspace operations.”</blockquote>

<blockquote>”This new Unified Combatant Command will strengthen our cyberspace operations and create more opportunities to improve our Nation’s defense. The elevation of United States Cyber Command demonstrates our increased resolve against cyberspace threats and will help reassure our allies and partners and deter our adversaries.”</blockquote>

<blockquote>”United States Cyber Command’s elevation will also help streamline command and control of time-sensitive cyberspace operations by consolidating them under a single commander with authorities commensurate with the importance of such operations. Elevation will also ensure that critical cyberspace operations are adequately funded.”</blockquote>

<blockquote>”In connection with this elevation, the Secretary of Defense is examining the possibility of separating United States Cyber Command from the National Security Agency. He will announce recommendations on this matter at a later date.”</blockquote>

<blockquote>”Through United States Cyber Command, we will tackle our cyberspace challenges in coordination with like-minded allies and partners as we strive to respond rapidly to evolving cyberspace security threats and opportunities globally.”</blockquote>

While the new measures from the President of the United States of America are certain to ensure a better future for America and her interests abroad, it remains unknown how soon the split in the agencies will take to accomplish.

President Trump is keeping his promises though, to Make America Safe Again, and to Make America Great Again.
