Portion of Melania Trump’s RNC speech strangely similar to Michelle Obama DNC speech

Published

on

At least a portion of Melania Trump’s speech at the Republican National Convention on Monday bears a striking similarity to First Lady Michelle Obama’s appearance for the Democratic Party in 2008, Fusion reported.

Journalist Jarrett Hill was the first to discover the similarity, saying on Twitter that Trump “stole a whole graph” from Obama’s speech.

He went on to post the portion in question from the 2008 speech, as seen here:

In 2008, the eventual First Lady said:

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.

On Monday, Melania Trump said the following:

My parents impressed on me the value of that you work hard for what you want in life. That your work is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise. That you treat people with respect. Show the values and morals in in the daily life. That is the lesson that we continue to pass on to our son.

We need to pass those lessons on to the many generations to follow. Because we want our children in these nations to know that the only limit to your achievement is the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them.

As CNN reported, Trump had said that she worked with a speechwriter for six weeks in preparation for her appearance at the RNC.
