Following revelations that Melania Trump appeared to lift portions of her speech from the address that now-First Lady Michelle Obama delivered at the 2008 Democratic convention, the Donald Trump campaign issued a vague statement that did not directly address accusations of plagiarism.

“In writing her beautiful speech, Melania’s team of writers took notes on her life’s inspirations, and in some instances included fragments that reflected her own thinking,” Trump spokesman Jason Miller said in a statement issued early Tuesday morning. “Melania’s immigrant experience and love for America shone through in her speech, which made it such a success.”
