 Former first lady Michelle Obama on Friday appeared to rebuke President Donald Trump’s “go back” language, saying that what “truly makes” America great is diversity.

“What truly makes our country great is its diversity,” Obama wrote in a tweet. “I’ve seen that beauty in so many ways over the years. Whether we are born here or seek refuge here, there’s a place for us all.

Obama, who is the most admired woman in the world according to a new poll, did not mention the president by name, but her online posting echoed Trump’s trademark tagline: “Make America Great Again.”
