Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who built a following among conservatives with his provocative social media presence and strong support of Donald Trump, said Wednesday that he’s taken a job as an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security.

The tough-talking, cowboy hat-wearing firebrand said in an interview with WISN-AM talk radio host Vicki McKenna that he will work in the Office of Partnership and Engagement as a liaison to state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies. He will start in June.

“I’m both honored and humbled to be appointed to this position,” Clarke said.

A DHS spokesman didn’t immediately reply to a phone message and email. A spokesman for the sheriff didn’t immediately respond to messages.

Clarke has made himself a darling of the political right through his brash social media presence, his staunch support for Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration and his support for patrolling of Muslim neighborhoods. He’s one of the most polarizing figures in Wisconsin politics.

“Our country deserves better,” Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, who has repeatedly clashed with Clarke, said of his appointment to the DHS position.
