Melania speech writer comes forward

The Trump Organization staffer who wrote Melania Trump’s Republican National Convention speech on Wednesday took responsibility for copying portions of Michelle Obama's speech. Staff writer Meredith McIver said in a statement that she had offered to resign, but Donald Trump refused to accept her resignation. McIver said that while writing the speech, Melania Trump told her that she was inspired by Obama and some of the passages from her 2008 Democratic National Convention speech/The Hill. More here.
