Melania Trump’s speechwriter comes forward and tries to resign, but Trump has other plans for her

After days of mainstream media hysteria over alleged plagiarism accusations hurled at Melania Trump, a friend who helped write the speech as come forward with an open letter.

Melania’s speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC) apparently borrowed similar lines from First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech, a mistake that her friend Meredith McIver is now fessing up to.

Read the full statement from McIver here on the controversy:

McIver said she worked with Melania to write the speech, taking inspiration from Michelle Obama’s speech, but did not specifically check the finished draft to make sure lines were not exactly the same.

Though she says she tried to resign over the controversy, the Trump’s have refused to let her do so, as Donald Trump apparently told her that “people make innocent mistakes and that we learn and grow from these experiences.”

McIver said she apologized for the “confusion and hysteria” the controversy has caused the Trump campaign and said she admired the way Trump has handled the media scrutiny over the issue, saying “I am grateful for his understanding.”
