David Clarke, aka known as America’s favorite sheriff, has been quiet since President Donald Trump offered him the position of assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security. He seemed the perfect candidate for the role with his fierce approach to terrorism and his no holds barred stance on safety.
Clarke accepted the position in the middle of May and told WISN in Wisconsin, “I’m both honored and humbled to be appointed to this position by [DHS Sec. John Kelly], working for the Trump administration in this position.”
In a turn of events on Friday, however, he confirmed that he had decided not to take the position.
But don’t think that just because he is not taking the assistant secretary position means that he is going soft on crime. On the contrary!
Dave Peterson, Clarke’s adviser said, “Sheriff Clarke is 100 percent committed to the success of President Trump and believes his skills could be better utilized to promote the president’s agenda in a more aggressive role.”
Peterson added, “The sheriff is reviewing options inside and outside of government.”
Clarke who was handpicked for the position by President Trump would have been great for the role. It will be interesting to see what position he opts for in the future and who Trump will choose to fill his shoes.
Freedom Daily reports:
America’s favorite sheriff has been strangely silent since he accepted the Department of Homeland Security position offered to him by President Donald Trump. The country was ecstatic about this perfect pick for the job, considering that Milwaukee Co. Sheriff David Clarke takes a no-excuses approach to terrorism and citizens’ safety, no matter who he has to offend to protect people. However, since that announcement was made something else has happened, and now the country is hearing from Clarke for the fist time in a while when he broke his silence with a devastating statement.
