Did Melania Trump lift lines from Michelle Obama’s speech?

UPDATED ON JUL 19, 2016 03:21 PM IST
Portions of Melania Trump's prime-time speech to the Republican National Convention on Monday appear to have been plagiarized, tarnishing what should have been her big moment to introduce herself to the American public. The apparent plagiarism came to light shortly after the 46-year-old former model took to the stage with husband Donald Trump Monday night to offer an eloquent testimonial of his strengths as a husband, father, and potential leader of the United States. A section of the speech describing the values that shaped her life strongly resembled a passage from Michelle Obama's speech to the 2008 Democratic convention.
