Eagles S Malcolm Jenkins reacts to Donald Trump’s decision to rescind White House invite
Through all of the Philadelphia-White House nonsense is a man who’s not having any of it. He’s a man who’s been outspoken on a number of occasions previously. He’s a man who comes to the party with the name of Malcolm Jenkins.
After President Donald Trump rescinded the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl champion White House invite, Jenkins penned a few thoughts on his official Twitter account with the caption of #TheFightContinues.
“The decision was made to lie, and paint the picture that these players are anti-America, anti-flag, anti-military,” Jenkins wrote in a lengthy social media post. “We will continue to fight for impacted citizens and give a voice to those who never had one.”
“We’ve fed the hungry, we’ve mentored our youth, we’ve fought to create opportunities for communities and individuals who have been disenfranchised, we’ve given scholarships, and the list goes on,” he wrote. “It’s not our job. No one elected us to do this. We do it because we love this country and our communities. Everyone, regardless of race or socioeconomic status, deserves to be treated equally.
“We are fighting for racial and social equality.”
