MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, one of Donald Trumps most outspoken supporters, spoke in Minneapolis on Saturday. Clarke spoke at an event honoring first responders and service members.
Throughout the evening, Clarke weighed in on a number of issues, including immigration and crime. The event was called A Celebration of Law and Order, and honored many individuals, including a soldier from Rochester wounded in the Fort Hood attack.
The event was hosted by a conservative grassroots group, Rightway Minnesota, the mission of which was supported by all of the speakers during the night.
Clarke, the keynote speaker for the evening, was quite outspoken in his support of President Donald Trump during his campaign, and continues to be supportive in Trumps early presidency.
Clarkes criticism of activist groups like Black Lives Matter is also well known. He says these groups unfairly malign law enforcement.
Clarke says President Trump will help bring order back to the inner cities.
Donald Trump's made it clear that it is not acceptable to him. That the folks that live in these areas deserve the same quality of life, Clarke told Fox9 reporter Samuel King. They deserve better schools for their kids, they deserve adequate housing, that sort of thing."
Hennepin County sheriff Rich Stanek also spoke at the event, and gave a full-throated endorsement of President Trumps agenda during his first days in office. Stanek pledged his support for the executive actions on the refugee ban, and the stripping of federal funding from so-called sanctuary cities, such as Minneapolis and St. Paul.
"Remember the Arab Spring, well my friends, in the United States, we've begun the 'patriot spring," said Stanek to his audience. We can celebrate a return to constitutional government and of course, the rule of law."
Trump has just got to find the proper slot in his administration for Sheriff Clarke! He is fantastic and lays the cards face up on the table.
I saw him early Saturday morning on Fox News and he mentioned he had been in law enforcement for 39 years.
I heard he might run for a Senate seat in Wisconsin.
Sheriff Stanek from Hennepin County? He must not be from Minnecraponus.
