Malcolm Jenkins, a star safety of the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles, told CNN on Monday that he does not plan on attending the White House ceremony celebrating the team’s championship win later this year.

“I personally do not anticipate attending [the White House ceremony],” he responded to a question from CNN’s John Berman.

Berman asked Jenkins if he had a “message” for President Trump, but the safety did not take the bait.

“My message has been clear all year,” he said. “I’m about creating positive change in the communities that I come from, whether it be Philadelphia, New Jersey, Ohio, Louisiana, or this entire country.”

Jenkins, one of the leaders of a social justice organization called the “Players’ Coalition,” told Berman that he would like to see criminal justice, economic, and educational reform.

At least one other player, defensive end Chris Long, said he will not attend the White House ceremony.
