Donald Trump's wife Melania spoke at a GOP convention campaigning for her husband, however the media have revealed an astounding fact: large parts of the speech were "borrowed" from Michelle Obama's 2008 address.

The would-be first lady delivered remarks that suggested "she is so eager to emulate Michelle Obama that she will repeat her almost verbatim," The Guardian wrote.

“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 you’re going to do,” she said.

There was another section too that some writers would say was borrowed or paid homage to; others would call it plagiarism.
