First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump has been engulfed in another plagiarism scandal, still linking with the work of her nearest predecessor, Michelle Obama.

Melania launched her new online safety guide for children on Monday and observers spotted the striking resemblance of this book with the one Mitchel obama published.

From the text and graphics to the words from the previous, the guide appeared undisputedly alike.

This resemblance according to observers, forced the title to change from, “First Lady Melania Trump and the Federal Trade Commission” to “Federal Trade Commission booklet, promoted by First Lady Melania Trump.”

While, this development has subjected the first lady to trolls on social media, commenters were quick to recall her 2016 saga.

She was accused in 2016 of plagiarising almost all parts of Michelle Obama’s speech in 2008.

On Monday, while launching the “Be Best” initiative, she said her goal was to promote healthy living, encourage positive use of social media and reduce drug abuse.

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

This, however, evoked questions on her husband’s use of Twitter to attack his critics or opponents.

In 2017, President Trump frequently called out several opponents including former president Barack Obama on Twitter, bashing them for various political reasons.

Reacting, she said, “I think the idea that you’re trying to blame cyberbullying on the president is kind of ridiculous.”
