Tough Sheriff Gets Important Job in Trump Administration

Tough Sheriff Gets Important Job in Trump Administration
Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. said Wednesday he would leave office next month to accept a federal appointment as an assistant secretary in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

He said he would work in the department’s Office of Partnership and Engagement as a liaison with state, local and tribal law enforcement and governments.

“I’m looking forward to joining that team,” Clarke said Wednesday on Vicki McKenna’s radio talk show on WISN-AM (1130).

Clarke campaigned around the country for then-presidential candidate Donald Trump last year and has defended the first-term Republican president against critics in the early months of his administration.
