During the first night of the Republican National Convention many were concerned with the similarities that Donald Trumps wife Melania’s keynote speech had to Michelle Obama’s speech in 2008.
Melania Trump, 2016:
“From a young age, 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,” Trump told the thousands of Republican delegates and assembled media on Monday night in Cleveland.
Michelle Obama, 2008:
“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.”
There’s more. Melania Trump also ripped off Michelle Obama’s line regarding children:
“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.”
Here’s what Michelle Obama said 2008:
“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.”
