Donald Trump's campaign manager blames Hillary Clinton for Melania's plagiarism accusations
Donald Trump’s campaign manager has blamed Hillary Clinton for the backlash to Melania Trump’s convention speech, which had strong similarities with Michelle Obama’s convention address 8 years ago.
"There’s a political tint to this whole issue," Manafort said. "We’ve noted that the Clinton camp was the first to get it out there and trying to say that there was something untoward about the speech that Melania Trump gave. It’s just another example, as far as we’re concerned, that when Hillary Clinton is threatened by a female, the first thing she does is try to destroy the person."
"We don’t believe there’s anything in that speech that doesn’t reflect her thinking. We’re comfortable that the words that she used are words that are personal to her"
