Trump staff writer apologises

A staff writer of the Trump Organization, the company owned by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, has claimed responsibility for inserting passages in a speech given at the Republican National Convention by Trump’s wife Melania that resembled parts of a 2008 speech by first lady Michelle Obama.

The woman, Meredith McIver, released a statement on Wednesday apologizing for using the language, which she said Melania Trump recited to her in a phone call, without checking to see how closely it matched Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention eight years ago.

    After Melania during an interview acknowledge that she wrote it herself with little help. If ever there was need of a scapegoat.

    Melania did acknowledge she wrote the speech with little help in the interview,I guess she meant with little help from Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC speech.
