Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr., who equates Black Lives Matter with ISIS, has withdrawn his name from a senior post with the Homeland Security Department, The New York Times reports.

“Sheriff Clarke is 100 percent committed to the success of President Trump, and believes his skills could be better utilized to promote the president’s agenda in a more aggressive role,” said the sheriff’s adviser, Craig Peterson, in a statement.

Peterson added that Clarke informed Homeland Security Sec. John Kelly of his decision on Friday.

It’s unclear what Clarke’s role would have been at the department. Clarke announced previously that he would work as a liaison to state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies in the department’s Office of Partnership and Engagement.

However, the department contradicted Clarke’s announcement. Spokeswoman Jenny Burke said the position Clarke mentioned requires secretarial appointment. “No such announcement with regard to the Office of Partnership and Engagement has been made,” she stated, according to The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Clarke met on Tuesday with President Donald Trump to discuss how he could help the president implement his law-and-order agenda, according to Peterson’s statement.

The sheriff has been a vocal critic of the Black Lives Matter movement. In an opinion piece in The Hill, Clarke wrote, “Black Lives Matter organizers hold the same values of America’s age-old enemies, who have always fought the ideals of our Constitution and our nation.” He also listed BLM with ISIS (and Occupy Wall Street) as forces that seek to “take down the West.”

As Clarke looks for ways to aid Trump, there are serious questions about how well he manages his own department.

A grand jury recommended criminal charges for employees at the Milwaukee County jail in the death of Black inmate Terrill Thomas, who died of dehydration after being denied water for several days. And earlier this month, a jury awarded $6.7 million to a former female inmate at the jail who said a staff member raped her at least five times while she was incarcerated.

    This has always been the case. I’m sure you would not be surprised to know how many blacks (coons) during slavery couldn’t wait to tell the “massahs and overseers” the plans of other blacks. White folks have done a number on blacks in this country, they decided long ago to ensure the division of blacks was the best way to keep us hating one another. They were amazing successful at this tactic and knew it would be this way for centuries to follow. And wouldn’t you know it, it still that way today. It’s so evident even on BAW with the many sides we take against each other in these comment sections. Look at all the black #45 supporters on here, and this man is doing everything in his power to take us back to the good ole days when we had no civil rights. Blacks better STAY WOKE, #45 hates us. But not only us, he hates anyone not as rich as he, this presidency for him is all about making his businesses more profitable. He doesn’t give a damn about making the country better for all citizens.

    Wow..this guy is an idiot and as hateful toward Black people as Trump & everyone in his administration is. He is just itching for an opportunity to engage peaceful demonstrators with physical violence & any other protest that opposes that Hitler wannabe at the White House. Everybody better wake up. These A’holes are trying to get rid of every Civil Rights gain made in the past 70+ years. And it is appaling how many people of color are aiding and abetting.

      Correct the whites especially southern whites know the type of people they are voting for they are fully on board with this type of thinking. Stay engaged they are turning back all the good. Don’t think it will turn out they way the Devils are planning though.
