Obama 'Proud' of Dutch Olympic Team

"So in addition to painting, you really know how to speed skate.”

On Monday, President Obama appeared alongside Prime Minister Rutte of the Netherlands, where he stated, “I’d be remiss if I did not mention that I’m proud of both of our teams at the Olympics. So in addition to painting, you really know how to speed skate.”

The Netherlands won 23 medals – eight gold, seven silver, eight bronze – and the Dutch speedskating team won 21 of those medals.

President Obama did not explain why he would be proud of another country’s Olympic team.
