Sheriff David Clarke had resigned as Milwaukee County sheriff on Thursday afternoon.

It is unclear why Clarke decided to resign.

On Sunday, President Trump promoted Clarke’s book, “Cop Under Fire: Moving Beyond Hashtags of Race, Crime and Politics for a Better America.”

“A great book by a great guy, highly recommended!” Trump tweeted.

Clarke is a strong supporter of Donald Trump, saying during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign that he would “do everything I can” to help Trump win the presidency. Clarke spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.
On November 25, 2016, it was reported that Clarke would be meeting with Donald Trump for a possible role in his administration. Clarke however turned down the role at the time.
