Former Filmon staffer says Trump should have told speechwriter 'you're fired!'

Two passages from her speech were almost identical to ones in the speech that Michelle Obama gave at the 2008 Democratic National Convention, triggering allegations of plagiarism.

Donald Trump is hoping Day 2 of his convention goes much more smoothly than the first, with GOP lawmakers and his children set to speak for the now-official Republican presidential nominee.

After the roll call, Clinton tweeted a fundraising appeal: "Donald Trump just became the Republican nominee". She could have done it, I watched the speech, I thought she hit it out of the park.

With campaign finance reports suggesting Manafort works for no salary, the relative newcomer to the Trump campaign has recently been willing to walk away if necessary.

It is a tradition of the party conventions for spouses to offer an enthusiastic personal endorsement of candidates.

"I think he will be a tremendous draw", says Mica Mosbacher, who is raising money for Trump and knows his children personally from the social scene in New York City, where she resides part-time. "I think they fell in love with her and she's going to make an incredible first lady". That is the lesson that we continue to pass on to our son.

In 2008, Michelle Obama said, "And Barack and I were raised with so numerous same 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; that you treat people with dignity and respect". Show the values and morals in in the daily life. [Cheering] Because we want our children in these nations to know that the only limit to your achievement is the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them'. After the calamity of wife Melania being accused of cribbing Michelle Obama's 2008 speech on Monday night, his 22-year-old daughter, Tiffany took centre stage last night to praise him as a parent.

"Our schools used to be an elevator to the middle class", said Mr Trump, in one of the most memorable lines of his prime-time critique of Barack Obama's America.

The plagiarism controversy surrounding Melania Trump's speech on Monday night is raging on, and it's all because the Trump campaign can't admit even the slightest bit of culpability.

"There aren't that many similarities".

Yet Manafort remained squarely atop Trump Tower's internal power structure on Tuesday afternoon, his power limited only by Trump himself and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. "It's basically three places in the speech and it's fragments of words". She spoke in front of 35 million people yesterday.

They were [supposed] to be talking about how great his wife did, and how she gave a softer side to him and all they're doing is talking about how [the Trump campaign] bungled another thing. "But the words of her speech reflect her feelings for her husband, her country and her family".

"Frankly this was her vision that she wanted to communicate about her husband".

Thus former New Jersey governor Chris Christie said: "As a former federal prosecutor, I welcome the opportunity to hold her accountable for her performance and her character", to which the crowd responded by shouting, "Lock her up!"
