Donald Trump is taking absolutely no chances that his speech to accept the Republican presidential nomination will fall into the same trap as his wife Melania's address did.

The New York Times reports the billionaire real-estate tycoon's campaign staff is carefully vetting his Thursday night speech to make sure there are no instances of what could be called plagiarism.

The newspaper says Trump's speechwriters are making sure "even loosely inspired by speeches, essays, books or Twitter posts" are rewritten or attributed.

The careful scrutiny follows charges that portions of Melania's address at the Republican National Convention were cribbed from Michelle Obama's 2008 speech at the Democratic National Convention.

On Wednesday, a Trump staffer who helped draft Melania's words admitted to the gaff.

Ed Rollins, a Republican strategist advising one of Trump's super PACs, told The Times: "His speech is the whole game. Viewers have to watch it and say, 'There is the next president of the United States.'"
