Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke resigned from his position as last week in order to serve as senior adviser and spokesman for America First Action, a pro-Trump Super PAC.
Clarke tweet last Friday, announcing, “After nearly 40 years serving my community I’m retiring. What a ride! I will announce my future plans next week after the Labor Day holiday.”
He expressed excitement at “the chance to do what I love most …” and added that, in his new position as a private citizen, he would be allowed to actively promote President Trump’s agenda.
“It’s truly an honor to join the America First Action team, most importantly because we share the same values that most hard-working, law-abiding Americans do,” Clarke expressed in statement released on Tuesday. “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 the will of the American people who got President Trump elected is not derailed by the left or the self-serving Washington establishment,” Clarke stated.
In an email correspondence encouraging his many ardent fans, he declared that the “will of the American people is not derailed.” He pledged to, “help make sure we elect the candidates who will do what they promise in support of President Trump’s agenda,” and that, “Just as important, I will see to it that the will of the American people is not derailed by the left or the self-serving Washington establishment.”
Clarke has been noted as an active supporter of Trump ever since Trump announced his presidential campaign. Brian Walsh, president of the PAC, welcomed Clarke and stated, “David Clarke is an American patriot, and we are very proud to welcome him to America First.”
“Having spent a lifetime in law enforcement – protecting and serving his community and fighting for justice and the Second Amendment – Sheriff Clarke doesn’t just believe in making America safe again; he’s devoted his life to it,” he added.
