The 2018 Winter Olympics are here, and the best way to get into the patriotic mood is with this video of President Ronald Reagan meeting the 1988 U.S. Winter Olympic team.

WATCH:

The Olympics are already political this year, as Vice President Mike Pence has been criticized by figure skater Adam Rippon, an openly gay man for his stances on LGBT issues.

Pence responded to these criticisms on his Twitter page:

Headed to the Olympics to cheer on #TeamUSA. One reporter trying to distort 18 yr old nonstory to sow seeds of division. We won’t let that happen! #FAKENEWS. Our athletes are the best in the world and we are for ALL of them! #TEAMUSA

.@Adaripp I want you to know we are FOR YOU. Don’t let fake news distract you. I am proud of you and ALL OF OUR GREAT athletes and my only hope for you and all of #TeamUSA is to bring home the gold. Go get ‘em!

This year, let’s all try to put the politics aside and cheer for our country.
