Cleveland(Ohio, US), July 19 (ANI): In a possible first, the wife of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's wife Melania Trump is being accused of plagiarising a speech of U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama.

As Melania praised her husband, she went on to borrow some parts of Michelle Obama's convention speech in 2008, reports CNN.

Michelle Obama in her convention speech has said, "Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values, like you work hard for what you want in life. That your word is your bond that you do what you are saying you are going to do. That you treat people with dignity and respect even if you don't know them and even if you don't agree with them. And Barack and I set out to build lives guided by these values and pass them on to the next generation, because we want our children and all children in this nation to know that the only limits to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work hard for them."

In her speech Melania said, "My parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want in life. That your word is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise, that you treat people with respect. They taught me values and moral in their daily lives. That is a lesson that I continue to pass along to my son and we need to pass these lessons on to the many generations to follow, because we want our children in this nation to know that the only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them."
