Melania Trump has started a campaign of her own entitled, “Be Best”, which promotes online safety for kids. Many are accusing her of stealing some ideas from the Obama administration. More specifically the pamphlet she used to promote her campaign is an exact replica of one the Obama’s did while in office back in 2014.
From the pamphlet’s cover and images to the text written inside, its almost exactly the same as what Melania presented.
The White House told TMZ, “Mrs. Trump agreed to add “Be Best” branding and distribute the booklet in an effort to use her platform to amplify the positive message within.” Explaining that her office went on to say the Federal Trade Commission, which originally authored the pamphlet, was excited Melania included it in her campaign. The White House says this is a “Federal Trade Commission booklet, promoted by First Lady Melania Trump,” not material actually WRITTEN by Melania Trump. Only promoted by the First Lady.
This isnt this first time Melania has been accused of plagiarism. Back in 2016, Melania’s RNC speech was almost word for word of Michelle Obama’s DNC speech.
