An employee of Donald Trump, Meredith McIver, has claimed responsibility for Melania Trump’s plagiarised speech on Monday at the Republican National Convention.

McIver who is a longtime employee of Mr Trump admitted to lifting two passages from Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech.

While posting on the Trump campaign website, Ms. McIver said, “In working with Melania on her recent first lady speech, we discussed many people who inspired her and messages she wanted to share with the American people. A person she has always liked is Michelle Obama.”

McIver continued, “Over the phone Ms. 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.”

“I asked to put out the statement because I did not like seeing the way this was distracting from Mr. Trump’s historic campaign for president and Melania’s beautiful message and presentation.

I apologize for the confusion and hysteria my mistake has caused. Today, more than ever, I am honored to work for such a great family.” She concluded.

McIver said she had opted to resign but the Trumps refused saying everyone makes mistakes and learn from experience.

According to the New York Post, Mr. Trump accused press of spotlighting his wife while using his favorite punchline about “no press being bad press.”

He tweeted, “Good news is Melania’s speech got more publicity than any in the history of politics especially if you believe that all press is good press!” while adding, “The media is spending more time doing a forensic analysis of Melania’s speech than the FBI spent on Hillary’s emails.”

Trust Trump to always have the last word.
