On Monday November 28th 2016 President-elect Donald Trump is having an in person meeting with America’s Sheriff David Clarke. Could there be potential for a possible cabinet appointment for the Milwaukee County sheriff? Clarke is known as being a strong conservative and is a no-nonsense type of guy.
According to Breitbart:
Trump transition team officials confirmed that the president-elect would meet with Clarke on Monday, after he returns to Trump Tower from his Thanksgiving trip to Mar-a-largo in Florida.
Officials did not say whether Trump is offering Clarke a position with his administration, but signaled interest in his opinions.
“The president elect meets with individuals who he believes he wants to hear their ideas, suggestions and opinions and then sometimes considers them for multiple potential positions,” Trump transition team’s Sean Spicer explained.
Sheriff Clarke has discussed the potential of a role in the Trump administration in what is known as his signature, no-nonsense fashion:
“I don’t expect anything, I don’t have an entitlement mentality,” Clarke said. “I told Donald Trump I wanted to help him, because I thought that this country needed his leadership. That being said, if the President asks you to serve, you step up to fulfill that duty. So if he feels that I can help him and he calls on me, sure I’ll accept it, but I’m not expecting anything.”
It is being reported by Politico and BuzzFeed that Sheriff Clark is under consideration to become the next secretary of Homeland Security.
As we know Sheriff David Clarke was outspoken for Trump during the presidential campaign and is well known for his tough on crime positions and unapologetically blunt comments. Clarke, who is African America, make news during the campaign for his opposition of the George Soros’ backed Black Lives Matter group in which Clarke predicted would join forces with ISIS.
It will be interesting to see what comes out of the meeting between Donald Trump and Sheriff David Clarke, But I for one hope for a good outcome and we have Clarke as a cabinet member.
