Trump Jr. doesn’t that think Melania Trump needs to Michelle Obama for her speech at the RNC. Do you agree with him? Or do you think that she should be apologizing? Here’s what he had to say:
Donald Trump Jr. says Michelle Obama does not deserve an apology following claims his stepmother Melania plagiarized one of her speeches.
The Republican presidential nominee’s eldest son told ABC’s World News Tonight the similarities between the former model’s remarks at the National Convention on Monday night and those made by the first lady eight years ago had been blown out of proportion.
The Donald’s campaign team was slammed after it was revealed Slovenian immigrant Melania’s speech matched portions from Mrs Obama’s address to the 2008 Democratic National Convention, word-for-word.
‘I don’t know that Michelle Obama … or whoever is involved in this … I don’t think so,’ Trump Jr said when asked if someone should say sorry.
‘I don’t think this is something of that magnitude. I mean, I think, I understand from a media perspective trying to create a much bigger story out of something than it is, but I really don’t think so … I don’t at all.
‘I don’t know if it has anything to do with people in campaigns. I mean, again, obviously a speech of that size and magnitude, you’re going to work with speechwriters.
Anchor David Muir then asked if he believed anyone would be fired for their part in writing the speech.
‘I don’t know that they should be, you know, involved going forward, but it has nothing to do with a poll or, you know, the other nonsense that I’m hearing around there for people trying to be relevant.’
He added that his father wasn’t thrilled by the allegations, but insisted the campaign would move forward.
