“I don’t have a message for the president. My message has been clear all year. I’m about creating positive change in the communities that I come from, whether that be Philadelphia, New Jersey, Ohio, Louisiana, or this entire country.

I want to see changes in our criminal justice system, I want to see us push for economical and educational advancement in communities of color and low-income communities, and I want to see our relationships between our communities and our law enforcement be advanced.
