Sheriff Clarke Meets With Trump, Tells Him What Its Like In The Trenches

Milwaukee, WI – In his ever-increasing show of support for the police, Donald Trump met with Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke. Clarke, who is famous for his outspoken support of the police and hard line against crime, said the two discussed safer schools and safer neighborhoods. The information came out during an interview between Griff Jenkins of Fox’s “On the Record” and Sheriff Clarke. The video of Clarke’s comments is below:

Clarke said that Trump understands the importance of public safety. He went on to say, “I’m at street-level. I’m meeting and dealing with people who are looking for safer neighborhoods, safer schools on a daily basis, so I’m in touch with them. I know what their needs are, what their wants or desires are.”

They discussed the catalysts for the violent protests occurring all over the country. Sheriff Clarke said that the police interactions are not the cause of the riots but rather, an ideology that has been hijacked for political purposes. He noted that these activities occur in challenged, ghetto, and high crime areas where more police are already needed. He admits that there are no meaningful jobs available in these economically depressed areas and he even referred to the Milwaukee School System as, “horrible.”

Trump has been a vocal supporter of law enforcement since he started his run for the White House. Sheriff Clarke has been one of the most outspoken law enforcement leaders in the country since the onset of riots and the media started spreading the recent false narrative of Black Lives Matter. It was really only a matter of time until these two had some type of correspondence. As Sheriff Clarke mentions in the video though, they have spoken before. It’s looking likely that there may be a spot for Sheriff Clarke in Washington if Donald Trump is elected.
