Hours before the liberal media accused Melania Trump of plagiarism, the former model said she wrote her Republican National Convention speech herself “with as little help as possible.”

“I read over it, and that’s all,” she told Today’s Matt Lauer on Monday before her speech. “Because I wrote it … with as little help as possible.”

But after Melania came under fire when it was revealed several passages of her speech were similar to Michelle Obama’s 2008 address at the Democratic National Convention, Donald Trump’s campaign released a statement that Melania had a “team of writers” working with her.

“In writing her beautiful speech, Melania’s team of writers took notes on her life’s inspirations, and in some instances included fragments that reflected her own thinking,” the statement read. “Melania’s immigrant experience and love for America shone through in her speech, which made it such a success,” the statement read.

Donald Trump’s campaign manager denied allegations Tuesday that Melania Trump plagiarized a Michelle Obama speech on the first night of the Republican National Convention, calling the accusation “just really absurd.”

“To think that she would do something like that knowing how scrutinized her speech was going to be last night is just really absurd,” Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on “New Day.”
