President Donald Trump has a message for the data-hungry: Forget about big data.
Trump told the crowd at the White House Friday that the biggest problem facing the country is the lack of jobs.
“It’s never a problem for the people that are struggling, because the jobs that are being lost are the people with the greatest ability to create and to improve the economy,” Trump said.
“And it’s not only jobs that people are leaving the country.
We have a massive amount of companies leaving the United States.
There are massive amounts of companies that are not keeping the promises they made.”
Trump also addressed the controversy over a tweet that suggested the U.S. should consider using a nuclear weapon to deal with climate change.
“We are going to use a nuclear option.
It will work.
It won’t hurt anyone, it won’t kill anybody, and it won-will never kill anybody,” Trump tweeted Friday.
“No more of this nuclear deal.”
Trump is scheduled to deliver a major speech on cybersecurity to the Cybersecurity Summit next week, and on Friday he will meet with representatives of the Department of Homeland Security, the Department’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The White House said Trump will discuss the cyberthreat posed by North Korea, and he is expected to call on Congress to provide additional funding for cyber defenses.
