Ex-Sheriff David Clarke has joined the pro-Trump super PAC America First Action as a senior adviser and spokesman, Fox News reported Tuesday.
"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," said Clarke, who resigned last week from his post as Milwaukee sheriff after serving for 15 years.
"It gives me the chance to do what I love most — promote President [Donald] 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 has vocally supported Trump and endorsed him last year at the Republican National Convention. It was rumored he would get a spot in the Trump administration, but the White House shot down that speculation Monday.
The Daily Beast reported White House chief of staff John Kelly was likely the reason Clarke did not get a position in the West Wing or at the Department of Homeland Security.
