In her first major address before the nation yesterday night at the Republican National Convention, Donald Trump's wife, Melania Trump, who is hoping to be US next First Lady gave a wonderful speech and many were impressed until they realized the former model plagiarized a number of lines from first lady Michelle Obama’s speech at the 2008 Democratic National Convention. 

There are a few word for word similarities. Check it out after the cut...

Yesterday Melanie said; 
“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.

In 2008, Mrs. Obama said,  
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.”
