Melania Trump's Speech is the Most High-Profile Plagiarism in Recent Years

At least one passage in Trump's speech Monday night plagiarized from Obama's address to the Democratic National Convention in 2008.

Side-by-side comparisons of the transcripts show the text in Trump's address following, nearly to the word, the would-be future first lady's own from the first night of the Democratic convention in Denver nearly eight years ago.
