Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich asked Wednesday "who cares" whether Melania Trump plagiarized a Michelle Obama speech from 2008 in her Republican National Committee address. The members of the GOP were ecstatic at finding a reincarnation of Jacqueline Kennedy in Melania Trump before a plagiarism storm threatened to engulf her hubby's grand moment. "Over the phone, she read me some passages from Mrs. Obama's speech as examples", McIver explained. She said she never searched Ms Obama's speech. "No harm was meant", wrote McIver.
McIver says she offered her resignation but it was rejected by Donald Trump. The sixth excuse, which came Wednesday afternoon from a little-known Trump Organization staffer, was an admission of guilt and an apology in what can only be described as the opposite of the Trump campaign style.
In a campaign marked by insults and inflammatory rhetoric, Trump tapped into a deep vein of unhappiness running through white Middle America, giving voice to millions who felt left behind in the rush to globalization and who eschewed traditional establishment Republicans like Bush in favour of a brash political outsider who promised to "Make America Great Again".
The speech required her to overcome her wariness about public speaking and the traditional role of the politician's wife, as well as her heavily accented English, to present herself to the public as her husband's partner, a poised mother and wife passionate about issues impacting women and children.
A Trump staffer has apologised for the "chaos" caused by a speech delivered by Melania Trump that ignited an embarrassing plagiarism row and cast a shadow over the Republican National Convention.
'Well orchestrated' "That was pretty well orchestrated", he said, asking a campaign aide: "Jeff, did you email them to fly the plane right when I said that?"
Melania Trump's remarks were the first of several planned family testimonials aimed at recasting the celebrity showman as a serious-minded family man.
The passages in question came near the beginning of Mrs Trump's almost 15-minute speech.
Similar overlaps included how to convey to children that there is no limit to what they can achieve. Nevertheless, Donald Trump now has the crown - and a final chance to summon unity from the party's restive ranks in the ritual's closing days.
McIver started at the Trump Organization in 2001, according to her profile on the website of a booking agency called the All American Speakers Bureau. Trump narrowed his deficit against her to 7 percentage points from 15 points late last week, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Tuesday.
McIver has worked on some of Mr. Trump's books, including How to Get Rich and Think Like a Billionaire.
I apologize for the confusion and hysteria my mistake has caused.
