On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey after he repeatedly showed incompetence on the job. Now, one of the frontrunners to replace him has been revealed, and he has big plans for Hillary Clinton.
New reports are saying that Trump is strongly considering Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke to replace Comey, and he joined FOX Business Network’s Mornings with Maria to talk about this.
“This is the kind of political theater that goes on when something like this opens up,” he said. “My name has been mentioned…I try not to get into that – I’m focused on what I’m doing right now.”
This came after Trump took to Twitter to say that Comey “will be replaced by someone who will do a far better job.”
James Comey will be replaced by someone who will do a far better job, bringing back the spirit and prestige of the FBI.

Clarke told Fox Business the first thing he’ll do if Trump names him as FBI director.
“If Trump made me his FBI Director I would be arresting Hillary Clinton today,” he said boldly.
“He and [Attorney General] Jeff Sessions will do what’s in the best interest of the FBI in terms of leading that organization, that agency I should say, into the future,” Clarke added.
Clarke refused to discuss what conversations he has had with the White House about potentially taking over this job.
“Those kind of conversations are confidential,” he said. “But you know I stand by, and wear it as a badge of honor, my position on crime, my position on the rule of law and the protection of law abiding citizens, which I’ve done for nearly 40 years.”
