Melania Trump accused of copying Michelle Obama’s 2008 Convention speech

 

Melania Trump, wife of presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has been accused of copying Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic Convention speech.

After Melania delivered her ‘powerful’ speech  on the first day of the Republican Convention on July 18, it took a little digging to find out how she came about such a great speech.
See the key moment in Melania Trump’s speech:

My parents impressed on me the values: that you work hard for what you want in life. That your word is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise.That you treat people with respect. They taught me to show the values and morals in my daily life. That is the lesson that I continue to pass along to our son.

And we need to pass those lessons on to the many generations to follow. [Cheering] Because we want our children in this nation to know that the only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them.

This is what she copied from Michele Obama’s speech in 2008:

And Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values: that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say you’re going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don’t know them, and even if you don’t agree with them.

And Barack and I set out to build lives guided by these values, and pass them on to the next generation. Because we want our children — and all children in this nation — to know that the only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work for them.
