Categories: Melania Trump & Donald Trump
Donald Trump's wife, Melania Trump, lifted two paragraphs from a speech Michelle Obama gave at the 2008 Democratic National Convention while delivering her speech to the 2016 Republican National Convention. The Trump campaign initially denied that they lifted the paragraphs, but eventually admitted that a speechwriter did in fact lift the paragraphs after Mrs. Trump told her that she admired the current First Lady.
