Trump offers cybersecurity plan to guard gov’t, talks of vets with ‘mental issues’

HERNDON, Va., Oct. 3 (UPI) — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Monday provided a glimpse of his plan to guard government websites from hostile operators, as the issue fuels greater concerns in light of recent breaches of security.

Speaking to a group of supporters in Herndon, Va., Monday, Trump said he plans to form a cybersecurity review team if he is elected next month.

“There are ways of doing this through modern technology, but we are not using that, and, frankly, our technology is not up to date,” Trump said to the Retired American Warriors PAC audience.

The group would be made up of military, civilian and private cybersecurity experts.

During the speech, though, Trump created another stir when he suggested that military veterans with mental deficiencies aren’t as strong as some others.

“When you talk about the mental health problems, when people come back from war and combat, they see things that maybe a lot of the folks in this room have seen many times over. And you’re strong and you can handle it. But a lot of people can’t handle it,” he said.

Trump made the remarks when discussing his vision for helping Americans with mental health difficulties.
