Diversity--race, religion, nationality--is an American ideal

McMullin closed his speech with a reiterated emphasis on America's fundamental ideals. Along with the pursuit of happiness, McMullin listed "diversity" and "the protection of all people regardless of race, religion, nationality--and really, our respect for all people no matter who they are" as a fundamental American ideal. This ideal served as a backdrop for another cut at Donald Trump and Co. ("presidential candidates who attack Mexicans, Arabs, women, people with disabilities, and others"). McMullin echoed Hillary Clinton's claims that Trump's rhetoric was "doing the work of ISIS for it," and then went one step farther, claiming that it presented a larger threat to our national security than ISIS itself.

McMullin concluded, "I do think that you have some corners of the Republican party that maybe struggle with diversity, and that's a challenge. But it's also an area where the rest of us need to lead."
