Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who recently resigned from his position, has now revealed his next move.
As a longtime supporter of Donald Trump, Clarke’s new role will still be in promoting the president’s agenda, he said Tuesday.
Clarke has joined the America First Action Super PAC as a senior advisor and spokesperson.
“It gives me the chance to do what I love most—promote President Trump’s agenda–including his fierce support for the American law enforcement officer–and ensure that the will of the American people who got President Trump elected is not derailed by the left or the self-serving Washington establishment,” Clarke said, according to a report by Axios.
Clarke endorsed Trump during his campaign and was a speaker at the Republican National Convention last July.
Clark issued a “retirement statement” on Aug. 31, saying, “After almost forty years serving the great people of Milwaukee County, I have chosen to retire to pursue other opportunities.” Clarke continued, “I will have news about my next steps in the very near future.”
Speculation was swirling about whether he would be given a role in the Trump administration.
President Trump had offered Clarke the role of deputy secretary at the Department of Homeland Security in May, but the potential appointment drew a massive amount of backlash and Clarke’s name was withdrawn from consideration in June.
