Trump Admin Begins To Take Threat Of EMP Attack Seriously
President Donald Trump Tuesday ordered federal agencies to strengthen the resiliency of American critical infrastructure against electromagnetic pulse attacks.
According to Business Insider, Trump's executive order is the first of its kind meant to battle the EMP threat.
Some argue it's an existential threat, while others believe it to be a conspiracy theory.
A potentially harmful EMP event can be caused by a natural occurrence or the detonation of a nuclear weapon in the atmosphere.
The threat of an EMP attack against the US reportedly drove the president to issue the order.
Multiple federal agencies, as well as the White House National Security Council, have been instructed to make this a priority.
