Many of us find humor in watching our grandparents try to navigate the technological world. But when that grandparent is Donald Trump, the man who will soon be responsible for making sure the United States is on the forefront of cyber security, it doesn't feel like a laughing matter.
Trump has made a number of curious statements on the subject of computer security. He’s equated systematic hacking of American institutions to his 10-year-old son’s ability to crack the home computer password, and he’s declared it’s impossible to know who committed a cyber attack after the fact.
He’s also held contradictory positions on the openness of the Internet saying that he will "protect Internet freedom” while also suggesting “closing that Internet up,” dismissing “freedom of speech” advocates as “foolish people."
