Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson voices warning after Trump’s proposed education cuts

Pro-Bowler NFL receiver Allen Robinson is paying attention to President Trump’s new budget proposals.

The Jacksonville Jaguar WR was vocal on Twitter in regards to a specific proposal that would cut nearly $4 billion to Pell Grant funding. Robinson voiced his displeasure after US Representative Keith Ellison released a series of tweets highlighting parts of the budget plan he disagreed with.

Ellison highlighted how the series of cuts to the education department would impact young Americans and low-income students in particular.

Pell Grants provide students funding who need help to pay for college, and they’re limited to students with financial need. In 2015-2016, nearly 7.6 million students received this grant, totaling nearly $30 billion dollars.
