Sheriff Clarke says He Will Serve if Trump Asks

(CNN) Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke said in an interview Thursday he was open to serving in the Trump administration if a position was offered.

In an interview with radio host Joe Pags, Clarke was asked if he was expecting a role in Trump's White House.

    "I don't expect anything, I don't have an entitlement mentality," Clarke said. "I told Donald Trump I wanted to help him, because I thought that this country needed his leadership. That being said, if the President asks you to serve, you step up to fulfill that duty. So if he feels that I can help him and he calls on me, sure I'll accept it, but I'm not expecting anything."

    Clarke was a surrogate for Trump during the presidential campaign and is known for his tough on crime positions and unapologetically blunt comments. Clarke, who is African American, also made news during the campaign for his opposition to Black Lives Matter activists, whom he predicted would join forces with ISIS.

    BuzzFeed and Politico reported that Clarke is under consideration to become the next secretary of Homeland Security.

    Also in the interview, Clarke criticized activists who are protesting the election results, calling them anarchists who don't support the rule of law, though Clarke himself made news last month when he told supporters it was "pitchfork and torches time" in a tweet.

    "When Barack Obama won in '08 and when Barack Obama won in 2012, I was disappointed, as were a lot of people. We didn't take to the streets, we didn't riot, we didn't even protest," Clarke said.
