Melania Trump’s discourse at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland on Monday contained an area strikingly like that conveyed by current First Lady Michelle Obama at the Democratic Convention in 2008.

Melania’s 2016 discourse…

“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,” Melania, the wife of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, told the convention. 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,” she said.

“And we need to pass those lessons on to the many generations to follow, 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.”

That small section of Melania Trump’s roughly 15-minute speech was similar to part of Michelle Obama’s convention speech in 2008, in support of her husband Barack Obama.

“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,” said Michelle.

“And Barack Obama and I set out to build lives guided by these values, and pass them on to the next generations,” she added.

“Because we want our children, and all children in this nation, to know that the only limit to the height of your achievement is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work for them“.

Donald Trump’s senior communications advisor, Jason Miller, negated the comments that she has replicated from the present first lady’s discourse. Rather he issued an announcement on Melania’s discourse for the crusade, however did not say the copyright infringement allegation by 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”, he said.
