"Muslim and American"

President Barack Obama, speaking at the Islamic Society of Baltimore, February 3, 2016:
“Today, there are voices in this world, particularly over the Internet, who are constantly claiming that you have to choose between your identities — as a Muslim, for example, or an American. Do not believe them. If you're ever wondering whether you fit in here, let me say it as clearly as I can, as President of the United States: You fit in here — right here. You're right where you belong. You're part of America, too. You're not Muslim or American. You're Muslim and American.”
