An outspoken critic of the Black Lives Matter movement, Clarke spoke out at the Republican National Convention in support of Trump in July.
In a controversial CNN interview in July, Clarke argued that Black Lives Matter were responsible for violence against police.
"My message has been clear from day one two years ago, this anti-cop sentiment from this hateful ideology called Black Lives Matter has fueled this rage against the American police officer," Clarke said, according to reporting from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "Yes I do. I’ve been watching this for two years. I predicted this. This anti-police rhetoric has turned out some hateful things in people."
