First Lady Melania Trump has been caught in another plagiarism row after the launch of its new online safety for children campaign, on Monday.

A booklet put out by Ms. Trump wore a striking resemblance to the one published under the Obama administration.

The text and graphics of the “Best” brochure were virtually identical to those of the previous edition.

In 2016, Ms. Trump has been accused of plagiarising parts of a speech from 2008 an address by Michelle Obama.

After the commentators picked up on very close similarities between the two speeches, Meredith McIver, Trump administration, a member of staff who has written for Ms. Trump speech, admitted to borrowing from Mrs. Obama.

Ms. Trump online safety booklet was first charged to the initiative’s website as being “by the First Lady, Melania Trump, and the Federal Trade Commission”.How did Melania Trump get a “Einstein visa”?

After the similarities with the Obama-era edition, have been taken online, the text has been revised to describe it as a “Federal Trade Commission booklet, promoted by the First Lady, Melania Trump”.

The launch of the “Be Better” initiative at the White House, Monday, Mrs. Trump said that the goal was to promote healthy living, encourage the use of social media, and the combat of the abuse of opiates.

“As we all know, social media can be both positively and negatively affect our children, but too often it is used in a negative way,” she said.

The decision to focus on cyberbullying has raised questions about the behavior of her husband, who frequently uses Twitter to attack and insult his opponents.

Mr. Trump has been widely criticized in 2017 when he used the platform to call TV hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough is “low I. Q. Mad Mika” and “Psycho Joe”, and declared that he had seen Ms. Brzezinski as “bleeding badly from a face-lift.”

He has also been accused of mocking a disabled journalist.

White House press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked before the launch of the initiative, whether the President, Trump believed that it was the responsibility of the need to address cyberbullying.

“I think the idea that you are blaming the bullying on the president is a little ridiculous,” she said.
