Michigan’s Jourdan Lewis reacts to Donald Trump’s win

Michigan Wolveirnes star Jourdan Lewis is the latest athlete to speak out on Donald Trump’s win in the 2016 presidential election.

Like has become common place in college sports, Lewis used social media as a platform to share his opinions on the current affairs of the country. Lewis took a very thought out approach, however, simply mentioning the challenge either candidate would have faced while also questioning Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.

Here is Lewis series of tweets from Wednesday.

It would have been a uphill battle regardless who won. We have to rally together as a people and make this work.

But real question… when was American great? Let's be honest, from my perspective it has never been.

He added, “It hurts to see my American people don’t realize the inequalities amongst us, that have been perpetuated through time.”

It’s great to see a player like Lewis using his platform for a positive message.

At a time where there is so much negativity and emotion, it’s important to remember that we all must come together.
