In case you hadn't heard, the uniforms America's Olympic athletes will wear during opening ceremonies later this month in London were made in China and other countries. And House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi isn't a fan.

"They should be wearing uniforms that are made in America," she said in response to a reporter's question about an ABC News report about the uniforms. The report also comes the same week that House Democrats are ramping up their two-year-old "Make It In America" legislative initiative, which pushes American manufacturing.

But, don't fret, athletes of America: the leader is still on your side.

"I can't wait to stay up and watch," she said of the Olympics. "We take great pride in our Olympic athletes."
