Donald Trump may be the official presidential nominee for the Republican party, but so far this week, the stars of the convention have been his family members.
Last night, his wife Melania made headlines for her impassioned speech praising her husband — a speech that ended up making national headlines over questions about plagiarism.
Tonight, it was Trump’s 22-year-old daughter Tiffany and his eldest son, Donald Trump, Jr., who took to the stage to speak about their father.
Tiffany, a recent University of Pennsylvania graduate and the daughter of Trump and his second wife Marla Maples, spoke about her father’s kindness and described his “desire for excellence” as “contagious.”
“My father is so friendly, so considerate, so funny and so real,” she said.
Trump’s oldest child also made waves Tuesday night with a rousing speech focusing on his father’s business savvy and strength.
“For my father, impossible is just the starting point,” he said.
Trump, Jr., also took several jabs at the Democrats, calling them “the party of risk.”
After his speech, some media outlets questioned Trump, Jr.’s speech, comparing it to a recent article in The American Conservative written by Frank Buckley.
Buckley responded to the allegations via email to Talking Points Memo, writing that he was one of the principal writers of the speech, thus rejecting the plagiarism claim.
