American Bridge On Donald Trump and David Clarke

American Bridge Vice President Shripal Shah statement on Trump reportedly considering David Clarke to be Assistant Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Partnership and Engagement:

“Sheriff David Clarke is a bigot who has allowed numerous people — including an infant — to die or be brutally tortured in his jails and on his watch. Clarke’s actions and beliefs are directly at odds with American values and have no place in our government at any level. It’s shameful that Clarke still holds a job in law enforcement, and appalling that Trump wants to give him a promotion.”
