Melania Trump's speech to the Republican National Convention contained two passages that match nearly word-for-word the speech that first lady Michelle Obama delivered at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

Mrs. Trump said, "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."

Mrs. Obama 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."
