Trump’s chief technology officer, Matthew DeWitt, told National Review on Tuesday that his department has implemented a “massive” new security system aimed at controlling the flow of information across the United States.
“We’ve got a lot of things that are being worked on right now,” DeWert told the publication.
“It’s not a small program.
It’s a massive program.”
DeWight said the new system would prevent “the vast majority of information” from reaching the American people.
He said he expected the system to be implemented by March or April.
In a separate statement, the department announced the launch of a new “Access Control Radar” program, which will allow U.K. and German authorities to track individuals and organizations seeking to access information.
DeWright, who took over the Trump administration’s National Security Council in the early days of the president’s term, said the system would provide the “information and access control” needed to “protect the country and its citizens.”
De Wert also said that the new Access Control Radar would “allow us to detect if the information is coming from the United Kingdom or Germany, and we will alert the relevant authorities if it is.”
De Witt, who was the chief technology and security officer for the Department of Homeland Security from January 2017 until his appointment as director of the National Security Agency in February 2018, said he is also working to “build a new National Security Strategy” to address “the evolving threat environment” and “the challenges of the digital age.”
The new program will be administered by a separate agency, he said.
The new system will allow the U and UK governments to “detect” foreign governments and individuals seeking information on U.N. Security Council members, for example.
De Witt added that the government will also “identify and prevent potential cyberattacks against the U, U.k. or the U/K.
Trump’s administration has struggled to make good on a pledge to ban foreign government-owned social media platforms and online service providers from accessing the United Nations’ Twitter, Facebook and Google services, which it called a “war on the press.”
In September, the president signed an executive order requiring U.n. citizens living abroad to turn over their passwords to the government.
But the new program, according to DeWit, will allow for more limited access.
“The government will only be able to see who is going through this,” De Wettt said.
“That’s not going to be able … to see what’s going on with our citizens.”
He said that, under the new plan, U,k.
and U.g. citizens will be able “to request that a government-issued email account not be used for any communications.”
“We have a policy that we won’t allow government-controlled social media and digital platforms,” he added.
The Trump administration also has struggled with a number of new privacy and civil liberties issues.
In December, it issued an executive directive that would allow the FBI to access communications between the president and members of his administration.
It also removed the requirement that the FBI obtain a warrant to access emails from the president.
And in July, the Trump Justice Department argued in a court filing that the court should “revoke the presidential executive order prohibiting access to private emails” between the Trump campaign and members, as well as Trump himself.
In October, the White House announced a plan to create a “transparency portal” to allow the public to “access and share information” about the Trump transition team and administration, including the president himself.
The administration is also planning to release a list of potential “transitional” names and titles for those who are not allowed to work in the government, and is also proposing to create an online “transition plan” for foreign workers, which would include instructions on how to apply for citizenship.
De Wait said the transition plan will be released soon, but declined to say when it will be.
De Witt said that “there’s a lot that’s happening right now, that’s not on the agenda right now.”
