While Bills players wouldn't put their names on comments made to Bleacher Report about their coach’s support for Donald Trump, Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins spoke passionately Thursday about the presidential candidate.

A Bleacher Report article published on Wednesday polled 43 NFL players, including 21 white players who said they planned to vote for Trump. Of the 22 black players polled, all but two said they will vote for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

That percentage didn’t surprise Jenkins, who said at least 90 percent of his white teammates will likely vote for Trump. It’s a percentage Jenkins finds troubling.

“Donald Trump is a divisive name in a locker room,” he said Thursday, via Philadelphia Magazine. “A lot of guys will talk politics, bu

t usually not about Trump. Those might get a little heated depending on who you’re talking to. … There’s some hardcore Trump fans in this locker room … which is fine.

“Usually, in this locker room, everybody’s in the top tax bracket. The Republican Party is usually nice on the pockets. That’s probably the No. 1 reason,” Jenkins added. “But personally, the rest of my family is not in this tax bracket, so I usually tend to vote for the majority of who my loved ones are."

Jenkins has maintained an active voice since 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick first began protesting racial injustices by kneeling during the national anthem in the preseason. He has raised his right fist during the anthem before each of the Eagles' past two games in support of that movement, and believes race to be one reason Trump has become such a polarizing figure among NFL players.

“At the end of the day, empathy is something America lacks right now. That ability to understand what (somebody else’s) experience is and what (somebody else’s) life is really hard. A lot of times what happens is you go off of what you grew up knowing,” Jenkins said.

“Not that anything’s wrong with it; you support whoever you want. But if I were to bring up the reasons that I didn’t like Trump — he says borderline racist things and says crazy things about women — the argument is probably going to be some way to justify it as opposed to understanding the impact that has on a person of color.”
