One of the toughest talking law enforcement officials in the U.S., Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke, has withdrawn his name from consideration for the role of deputy secretary at the Department of Homeland Security.
According to the Washington Post, a representative of Clarke’s told the paper that the sheriff had officially notified Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly he had rescinded his acceptance.
Sheriff Clarke was immediately attacked by liberals when he announced his new role at DHS last month. Claims that Clarke was a racist and a hater towards Muslims and Black Lives Matter sprung up across social media.
Clarke, who is African-American, is never shy when it comes to voicing his opinions about maintaining law and order. He was expected to start the role at the end of June, but the Washington Post reported that his appointment faced massive delays, which led to Clarke’s decision to withdraw.
