Melania Trump’s speechwriter admits ‘mistake’ in convention speech

Speechwriter for Melania Trump, has apologised for ‘plagiarising’ Michelle Obama‘s speech. Meredith Mclver also tendered her resignation but it was rejected by the Trump Organization after she admitted a “mistake” in lifting passages from a Michele Obama oratory for Melania to use at the Republican National Convention.
The media has heavily criticised Melania Trump for plagiarising a speech made by the outgoing First Lady in 2008, with entire phrases appearing also the same.

Meredith McIver, an in-house speech writer for the Trump Organization, has however tendered an apology in a letter personally signed by her saying she worked with Mrs Trump on the speech and apologised for the “confusion and hysteria” she has caused.

She added: “Over the phone, she [Mrs Trump] read me some passages from Mrs. Obama’s speech as examples. I wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech. I did not check Mrs. Obama’s speeches.
“This was my mistake, and I feel terrible for the chaos I have caused Melania and the Trumps, as well as to Mrs. Obama. No harm was meant.”
