In recent days, ESPN anchor Jemele Hill fired at President Donald Trump on Twitter, calling him a “white supremacist.” In her comments, she also stated that he was “unqualified and unfit” to be the President of the United States.
Her anti-Trump remarks became very controversial, stirring heat across the nation between the Democratic and the Republican party. However, one Democrat came to Trump’s defense: Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke. Although Clark identifies with the Democratic Party, much of his views are actually consistent with conservative beliefs.
The former sheriff appeared on Fox to discuss the controversy with Jemele Hill. During the interview, he made it clear that “Trump is not a racist” and called Jemele a “backbencher,” saying what she believes she needs to rise to the top.
When Clarke was asked if he thinks Trump is a racist himself, he responded, “Furthest thing from it; he’s one of the most generous individuals I know, especially when it comes to the black community.” He brought up the award Trump once received for his contributions to the black community, and additionally, Clarke believes he’s doing an “excellent” job as president.
During his interview, Clarke discussed the fact of politics recently entering its way into the sports industry. According to Clarke, sports channels should stay out of politics entirely, and simply focus on the games.
