EghtesadOnline: Donald Trump’s wife, Melania, took center-stage on the first day of the Republican National Convention but faced accusations that a portion of her speech plagiarized Michelle Obama.
Commentators noticed similarities with Obama’s 2008 convention speech, BBC reported. Trump’s speech also praised her husband as a “compassionate” man who would “fight for the country”. It was her first speech of the campaign and she had the help of a speechwriting team. Trump’s communications adviser, Jason Miller, issued a statement saying: “In writing her beautiful speech, Melania’s team of writers took notes on her life’s inspirations, and in some instances included fragments that reflected her own thinking.” Melania’s immigrant experience and love for America shone through in her speech, which made it such a success.”
