Donald Trump, Jr. Delivers Recycled Speech Line at RNC

Two passages - each 30 words or longer - matched a 2008 Democratic convention address by Michelle Obama almost word-for-word.

"Melania Trump said "the strengths of your dream and the willingness to work for them", Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony said 'this is your dream, anything you can do in your dreams you can do now".

Kasich avoided mentioning Trump at the event, instead using his brief remarks to contrast Trump's blunt, populist views with the theme of his own campaign: unity and uplift.

Mr Trump, a 70-year-old real estate developer and former reality TV star who has never held elective office, trails Mrs Clinton, 68, in many opinion polls after a bruising Republican primary season.

Speechwriters are to blame for the cribbing discovered in Melania Trump's keynote speech at the RNC last night, not Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Donald Trump Jr. tells CBS News' Norah O'Donnell.

"The great state of Alabama.is proud to cast its votes: 1 vote for Marco Rubio, 13 for Ted Cruz, and 36 votes for the next president of the United States, Donald J. Trump!".

Mr Trump will be officially endorsed as the Republican Party's presidential candidate at the convention in Cleveland later today.

Mrs. Obama, in her 2008 speech, said she was raised to believe that "you work hard for what you want in life, that your word is your bond, that you do what you say you're going to do, that you treat people with dignity and respect".

Ms Trump's prime time speech to the Republican National Convention was watched by 35 million people, but its aftermath has been dominated by claims she borrowed whole sections nearly word-for-word from some portions of a 2008 speech by Ms Obama. "Those are the people that did this, not Paul", he said in an interview, portions of which will air on CBS's evening newscast tonight and more on CBS's morning show.

The focus of the convention shifted on Tuesday from the formal anointing of her husband to accusations that sections of her speech were strikingly similar to an address by Michelle Obama at the Democratic convention in 2008. "Ninety-nine percent of that speech talked about her being an immigrant and love of country and love of family and everything else". Her account posted a brief statement on the speech, calling it "beautiful".

Melania Trump is the wife of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. "Melania Trump said, 'You work hard for what you get in life.' John Legend said, 'Work hard to be anything you want in life.' Kid Rock said, 'Work hard to be anything you want in life'".
