As if the Trump family cannot get any more pompous, Donald Trump’s son is now implying that President Obama copied his speech from the Trump heir.
Donald Trump Jr. used the line, “That’s not the America I know” in his RNC speech, and he is now accusing Obama of taking it to use in his own address to the Democratic National Convention, according to The Huffington Post.
Trump Jr. took to Twitter to publicly share his accusations against the president.
“I’m honored that POTUS would plagiarize a line from my speech last week. Where’s the outrage?” he tweeted Thursday, following Obama’s DNC speech on Wednesday night in Philadelphia, The Hill reported.
Trump’s son said in part of his speech, “We will not accept the current state of our country because it’s too hard to change. That’s not the America I know.”
In Obama’s speech, he said, “What we heard in Cleveland last week wasn’t particularly Republican, and it sure wasn’t conservative. What we heard was a deeply pessimistic vision of a country where we turn against each other and turn away from the rest of the world. There were no serious solutions to pressing problems, just the fanning of resentment and blame and anger and hate. And that is not the America I know.”
The United States President has yet to comment on the accusation.
Ironically, just last week, Melania Trump was criticized for plagiarizing Michelle Obama’s speech from 2008 at the Democratic National Convention.
Obama using a generic line in his speech isn't equivalent to the Melania/Michelle plagiarism debacle in which the majority of her speech was identical to the First Lady.
