Wanna know why America is great?

Watch some of the summer Olympic games and you'll see.

In Rio, we see Ibtihaj Muhammad, a hijab wearing Muslim American women competing in fencing. A women's gymnastic team with two African Americans, a Latina, and two young women who are white. The 555-member team is a reflection of our great nation. Our Olympians come from Maine to Hawaii. Women make up 292 of the members. Our Olympic team represents most races, creeds and ethnicity's found on the U.S. Census form.
As President Obama said in his comments on wishing our Olympic hopefuls success: "Team USA reminds the world why America always sets the gold standard: We’re a nation of immigrants that finds strength in our diversity and unity in our national pride."
