RNC Day #3: “Make America First Again”

Day three of the Republican National Convention will open under the theme "Make American First Again." Tonight’s speakers include Senator Ted Cruz and Donald Trump’s running mate, Indiana Governor Mike Pence.

Tuesday, two of Trump’s children spoke from the podium. For the second night in a row, a Trump family speech is under question of plagiarism. Donald Trump, Jr.’s headline address is a near-exact repetition of a small portion of an American Conservative article written by F.H. Buckley. The article was titled "Trump vs the New Class."

"Our schools used to be an elevator to the middle class. Now they’re stalled on the ground floor. They’re like Soviet-Era Department stores that are run for the benefit of the clerks and not the customers," Trump’s son said in his speech Tuesday night.

The line in Buckley’s article reads, "Our schools and universities are like the old Soviet department stores whose mission was to serve the interests of the sales clerks and not the customers." Buckley has since issued a statement saying Trump, Jr. did not do anything wrong. Buckley even said he helped write Tuesday night’s speech.
