Trump: Media Is Spending More Time On Melania Trump Speech Than FBI Spent On Hillary Clinton
Donald Trump took to social media to talk publicly about Melania Trump’s RNC speech Monday night, saying that media coverage on Melania Trump’s speech has been more extensive than the FBI’s analysis of Hillary Clinton’s email server where she knowingly and purposefully let thousands of emails contaning sensitive information, including some top-secret information be available to hackers in an unsecured environment.
Trump responded to the media’s extensive coverage of Melania Trump’s Republican National Convention speech, which resembled a Michelle Obama speech during the Democratic National Convention in 2008.
Trump tweeted, “Good news is Melania’s speech got more publicity than any in the history of politics especially if you believe that all press is good press!”
Five minutes later, Trump followed up with another Tweet regarding Melania’s speech.
“The media is spending more time doing a forensic analysis of Melania’s speech than the FBI spent on Hillary’s emails.”
In early July, FBI Director James Comey, recommended no charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server while serving as Secretary of State.
In-house staff writer, Meredith McIver for the Trump Organization issued a statement apologizing for the incident saying that Melania read her a few passages from Michelle Obama’s Democratic National Convention speech in 2008 as examples of messages she wanted in her speech since Michelle Obama “inspired her.”
“I write them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech,” the statement read.
McIver then offered to resign, but Trump rejected it, saying, “Mr. Trump told me that people make innocent mistakes and we learn and grow from these experiences.”
