There will be no new cabinet news this weekend, but there are reports that Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke is set to meet with President-elect Donald Trump on Monday. The tough on crime Clarke, who is a Democrat, is said to be in the running to head the Department of Homeland Security (via USA Today):
Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. is scheduled to meet Monday in New York with President-elect Donald Trump, according to news reports quoting a Trump aide.
Clarke, who runs as a Democrat, was a high-profile surrogate for Trump during the campaign. Clarke has been mentioned as a potential Trump appointee to head the Department of Homeland Security.
“The sheriff has nothing to say,” Clarke’s spokeswoman, Fran McLaughlin, said Friday when asked to confirm Monday’s meeting.
