David Clarke, the former Milwaukee County Sheriff and opponent of Black Lives Matter, has taken a position with a political action committee in support of President Donald Trump. The America First Action PAC announced the hire Tuesday, this after chatter that Clarke was set to join the Trump administration earlier this year.
The Hill reports:
America First Action praised the former sheriff’s career in law enforcement in a statement announcing his new role as its senior advisor and spokesman.
“David Clarke is an American patriot, and we are very proud to welcome him to America First,” the group’s president, Brian O. Walsh, said.
“Having spent a lifetime in law enforcement — protecting and serving his community and fighting for justice and the Second Amendment — Sheriff Clarke doesn’t just believe in making America safe again; he’s devoted his life to it.”
Clarke resigned last week after months of speculation that he may join the Trump administration. In May, Clarke said he had accepted a job in the Department of Homeland Security but reportedly retracted his acceptance of the position in June.
Clarke said he’s going to use the position to shine more shoes, excuse us, push Trump’s agenda of making America great again, or whatever that slogan was.
