Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is refusing to confirm a report that he will meet with President-elect Donald Trump.
“The sheriff has nothing to say,” Clarke spokeswoman Fran McLaughlin told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Friday.
Clarke, who often makes television appearances as a pundit, is a controversial figure for his outspoken opposition to the Black Lives Matter movement and his hardline stances on national security.
Breitbart first reported the meeting, citing unidentified sources in Trump’s transition team. Their report said the meeting will place on Monday after the president-elect returns to his home at Trump Tower from vacation in Florida.
Breitbart’s CEO, Steve Bannon, has taken a leave of absence from the controversial site to take on a role as a top adviser in Trump’s White House.
