Donald Trump Jr. has accused President Barack Obama of stealing a line from his speech last week and using it at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night.

The claim, which is technically correct because both men used the same line in their speeches, comes a week after the speechwriter for Melania Trump admitted to stealing lines for her speech at the Republican National Convention.


According to NBC News, here's what Trump Jr. said last week and what Obama said Wednesday night:

Trump Jr.: "There's so much work to do. We will not accept the current state of our country because it's too hard to change. That's not the America I know. We're going to unleash the creative spirit and energy of all Americans. We're going to make our schools the best in the world for every single American of every single ethnicity and background."

Obama: "What we heard in Cleveland last week wasn't particularly Republican and it sure wasn't conservative. What we heard was a deeply pessimistic vision of a country where we turn against each other and turn away from the rest of the world. There were no serious solutions to pressing problems, just the fanning of resentment and blame and anger and hate. And that is not the America I know. The America I know is full of courage, and optimism, and ingenuity. The America I know is decent and generous."

The two men both used variations of the phrase, "That is not the America I know."

NBC notes that Obama has used versions of that phrase several times in speeches over the years, so his use of it Wednesday in Philadelphia was not new.
