Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins released a statement of his own on Tuesday afternoon following President Donald Trump’s decision to cancel the Eagles’ White House invitation.

Jenkins’ “the decision was made to lie” line references Trump’s statement where he said the Eagles disagree with him “because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.”

If Jenkins truly didn’t care about America, why would he spend so much of his own time being involved in the community and trying to make it a better place?

Speaking of, Jenkins was scheduled to do some community events in D.C. today while other members of the team visited the White House.

These events are reportedly going to be rescheduled since the Eagles spent Tuesday having an OTA practice at their team facility in South Philadelphia.
