Clark currently works as a Trump administration political appointee at the U.S. Department of the Treasury in Washington, D.C.
After the successful election of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States, Clark served on the Presidential Transition Team in Washington, D.C. Clark helped ensure a smooth transition of power by developing and analyzing implementation plans for individual departments of the federal government.
In 2016, Clark worked on Donald Trump’s Presidential Campaign as a policy and research assistant for the campaign policy director. Working in Trump Tower in New York, Clark analyzed and managed the development of official campaign policy and positions, regularly compiled briefing papers and produced debate preparation materials for Mr. Trump.
Clark has years of experience working as a writer and research assistant for former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain.
For Mr. Cain’s presidential campaign, Clark worked as the lead researcher and debate prep coordinator. As the lead researcher, Clark assisted in the development of official campaign policy positions by drafting memos on domestic and foreign policy issues. Once a policy position had been established, Clark drafted talking points on the issue for use by Mr. Cain.
Clark played an integral part in developing the Cain Campaign Energy Policy. Clark mediated the policy discussions among the Cain Energy Policy Committee members and drafted the Cain Energy Policy for the presidential campaign. Key aspects of the Cain Energy Policy were used for portions of Mr. Cain’s book, “9-9-9 An Army of Davids.”
As campaign debate prep coordinator, Clark wrote and verbally delivered practice Presidential debate questions to Mr. Cain and challenged the candidate on his answers to strengthen debate performance. When the busy campaign schedule allowed for a full debate prep session, Mr. Cain overwhelmingly won the debate.
Clark also worked for Mr. Cain’s nationally syndicated talk radio show, preparing daily news briefings and talking points.
Clark began working with Herman Cain as a producer in 2008 for his radio show on News/Talk WSB in Atlanta, Georgia. Mr. Cain quickly became impressed with Clark’s ability to produce content and background research for the radio show and the two developed a strong working relationship that has lasted for years.
Clark graduated Magna Cum Laude from Kennesaw State University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Communication.
