Here’s a huge shocker! Sheriff David Clarke has decided to rescind his acceptance offer to join the Trump administration.
The process to confirm was taking its toll on the popular sheriff according to the video report below. Just a few weeks ago, a CNN writer had claimed Clarke plagiarized a document, which he claims was a witchhunt attack.

An adviser to Clarke told The Washington Post that the sheriff had officially notified Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly late Friday that he had rescinded his acceptance.
Clarke told conservative radio host Vicki McKenna during an interview last month that he had accepted the role of deputy secretary of Homeland Security.
“I’m both honored and humbled to be appointed to this position by Secretary Kelly, working for the Trump administration,” he previously said.
Clarke was expected to start the role at the end of June, but a source told The Post that the appointment faced significant delays, which led to Clarke’s decision to withdraw.
During the 2016 presidential race, Clarke supported President Trump, and he has praised him since the inauguration. At the Conservative Political Action Conference in February, Clarke spoke of his support for Trump’s executive orders on immigration. He would have worked with such policies had he been confirmed for the Homeland Security job.

I have great respect for this man. He represents what is real. I wish we had more honorable men like him willing to step up and do what is necessary, say what needs to be said and stand up for what is right!
