President Donald Trump has an “intelligent” hub at his White House, with staff members working to develop a “high intelligence” strategy that “aims to advance the president’s strategic goals while minimizing the risk of any missteps or unforeseen problems,” according to Politico.
The hub is staffed with intelligence experts, including “chief of staff, deputy chief of staff and chief of the staff of the White [House],” according to the Politico report.
In recent days, the administration has taken a more proactive approach to managing the White, as it sought to take advantage of the rise of the populist political movement.
Last week, Trump told the American people that the country was “on the cusp of greatness.”
In a series of tweets on Wednesday, the president also said he was “thinking of a way to use the new White House Communications Director” to “speak directly to our voters, and get them to hear us directly.”
Trump’s transition team is currently working to fill the role of communications director, which is currently filled by former Republican Rep. Mike Conaway.
The position is currently being filled by Mike Dubke, who was the president of the Republican National Committee and a vocal supporter of the Trump campaign.
“The Trump team will be hiring a communications director for the @WhiteHouse in the coming days,” the president tweeted on Tuesday.
“Mike Dubke is the right person for the job.”
The president also signed an executive order on Wednesday directing the Department of Justice to consider a complaint against the White house’s chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, for “using taxpayer money to promote an ideology that is incompatible with our Constitution.”
“We are not in a position where we need to go after the president,” Bannon said on Wednesday.
“I am not going to go to jail.
I will do what I need to do to protect the Constitution of the United States.
The president is not going anywhere.”
“The president has a high intelligence hub at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
that focuses on intelligence, strategy and technology, according to White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
The White House is looking to develop and execute a high-IQ strategic plan to advance President Trump’s strategic objectives while minimizing risk of anything missteps,” Spicer said.
“President Trump has been in office for four months, and the president has already begun to address the national security challenges of the day, and it’s important for him to get this done quickly.”
The White house has already launched a “counter-intelligence initiative” aimed at curbing the threat of “fake news” in its newsrooms, according Spicer.
“That includes creating a counter-narrative to fake news, as well as a daily counter to fake information and disinformation,” he said.
The department of justice is also “developing and implementing a counterintelligence program to target foreign interference in U.S. elections, including the election of the next president of this country,” according the White HOUSE.
Spicer said on Monday that the Trump administration is “working closely with the FBI and the Department and Justice Departments” to combat Russian propaganda and disinformation, as the president sought to use Twitter to rally support for his “Make America Great Again” agenda.
“As the President has made clear, his goal is to make America great again, not only by defeating the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, but also by making America safe for American families,” Spicer added.
“This includes ensuring that our government remains free and fair, so that every American citizen, regardless of political affiliation, is able to participate fully in our democracy.”
The Department of Homeland Security has also been tasked with developing a “cyber strategy to prevent and deter foreign-directed and domestic cybersecurity threats, and enhance cybersecurity for the nation,” according an announcement on Tuesday from the DHS.
