"Last Tuesday Sheriff Clarke met with President Trump and discussed other roles where the Sheriff could be of greater assistance to the President, and the Country", he continued.
MILWAUKEE (AP) The Department of Homeland Security says Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is no longer a candidate for a position in the agency.
Though Clarke said he was joining DHS last month, no formal position had been offered - and he was still serving as Milwaukee sheriff on Friday, The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports. He would have worked with such policies had he been confirmed for the Homeland Security job. "And feel for my career staff". "This appointment is a disgrace".
Clarke has come under fire for comments he has made about the Black Lives Matter movement, which grew out of protests over a number of police killings of unarmed black men in various parts of the United States.
It's not clear what Clarke will now do instead. Most recently, he has been under investigation in connection with the death of an inmate.
Since election day Clarke's name has been floated for a number of possible positions, including Federal Bureau of Investigation director after James Comey was sacked.
