The whole world watched the video of Melania Trump giving a similar speech as First Lady Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama did at the 2008 Democratic National Convention. When Ms. Trump delivered her speech, she did the “change a few words around here and there” tactic.
A Trump campaign team member by the name of Meredith Mclver wrote a jaded letter admitting her lack of effort to check the citing of the phrases that Ms. Trump wanted to use for her speech. Mclver wrote in her letter that she made a mistake.
“I apologize for the confusion and hysteria my mistake has caused.” Mclver said.
Donald Trump didn’t exactly address the situation and will not fire the staff writer for plagiarizing, which in college is seen as a crime.
