good morning. stolen words? were some of melania trump's words on the night of the openings your words is your -- >> your word is your bond and you say what you say you are going to do. >> the only limit to the height of your achievements. >> is the strength of your dreams -- >> the is reach of your dreams -- >> and your willingness to work hard for them. >> just hours earlier mrs. trump telling matt she wrote it herself. >> i wrote it with a little help as possible. o

trump's rock star-like entrance to cleveland. it today, tuesday 19th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news this is a special edition of "today" at the republican national convention with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from cleveland. >> good morning, everybody. welcome to "today" on a tuesday morning. here we are. day two of the convention. we're right here on the floor of the quicken loans arena. >> no surprises. we're talking about the speech that melania trump delivered to this convention last night. we knew we would do that on tuesday morning. what we didn't realize is we would talk about a couple portions of that speech lifted almost word for word from a speech that michelle obama delivered back in 2008. >> mrs. trump said it wouldn't
7:02 am
excitement but this is probably not what they had in mind. >> here to break it down is peter alexander across from us at the q. peter, good morning to you. >> i was on the convention floor last night as melania trump delivered that speech. it was widely praised when she wrapped it up, but less than an hour later the conversation quickly turned. it was first on twitter about poised to plagiarism. >> donald trump introducing his wife to the republican faithful for her primetime speech. >> but that was quickly overshadowed about similarities between melania trump's marks and michelle obama's age. >> from a young age my parents impressed on me the values for
7:03 am
worth is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise, that you treat people with respect. >> barack and i were raised with so many of the same values, like you work hard for what you want in life, that your word is your bond, that you do what you say you are going to do, that you treat people with dignity and respect. >> because we want our children in this nation to know that your only limit to your achievement is the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them. >> because we want our children and all children in this nation to know that the only limit to the height of your achievement is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work hard for them. >> earlier an exclusive interview with matt lauer, melania trump
7:04 am
largely crafted the speech -- >> i wrote it and with a little help as possible. >> overnight donald trump ignoring the controversy, treating her speech and demeanor were absolutely incredible, very proud. melania's team of writers took notes on her life's inspiration, and in some instances included fragment, and donald trump jr. givi giving her a good review. >> i am sick and tired of the defamation of donald trump by the media and by the clinton campaign. >> many of the speakers sharing a common target,
7:05 am
clinton. >> yes, that's right. lock her up. >> including an emotional appearance by the mother of an american killed in benghazi. >> i blame hillary clinton personally for the death of my son, personally. >> and it was a chaotic opening day. the rnc and trump's allies steam rolling an anti-trump bash. >> a vote they were bound to lose, but would give them an opportunity to register their dissatisfaction. >> they just blatantly violated their own rules. >> overnight, president obama's former speechwriter weighed in accusing.
7:06 am
>> again, this morning, the campaign manager from donald trump is defending melania trump saying there is no cribbing of michelle obama's speech, and she cares about her family. >> peter, thank you very much. >> let's chew this over from analyst, nicole murphy and mr. wallace. it's not watergate. there's no evidence that she herself is responsible for any phraeupblgerrism, but what does this schedule about the campaign. what do you think this does to the convention? >> if you look at the first opening 24 hours, the first move was a war with the governor, and then we rolled into the speech writing team who i don't think it's going to be on the campaign anymore. what counts is trump's speech later, and that's the big
7:07 am
moment. if they do good, it will help them. >> and if that begins with ask not what your country can do for you -- >> not a joke in the cycle, though. >> let's talk about what paul manafort said, there was no cribbing and copying, and he doubled down. do you agree with that strategy? >> i do not. you never subject a spouse to that. you get a spouse in and out of the spotlight like that. instead of letting her get in and out of the scandal quickly they are going to guarantee the campaign spends all day talking about whether or not she play jury rised. >> no doubt in my mi put those words on that piece of paper was aware of what michelle
7:08 am
>> similar stories but it looked like someone read that text and it stuck. >> there was a lot of red meat for the base. is it good strategy? >> chuck todd called it raw red meat. it was fiery stuff. just like everything the trump campaign has done so far, it was incredibly uneven. there was wrenching moments that had people wiping their tears and compelling stories, and the lone survivor gave a great speech and it was also marked with across the line rhetoric, so i am not sure and i don't know if we will see until it ends how it was received. >> the problem with last night is we need a horn to blow and explain the primary is over, and we are still doing primary raw meat which is great we get and lose with, and we need to expand the party.
7:09 am
>> they wanted the roll call vote on voting your conscience, and they lose because of it. is that the last gasp of the never trump movement or do they have other opportunities over the next few days. >> they have other optic opportunities. they still have the power to do disruption, because the truth is this is the most down beat convention i have been to for a long time, not a lot of delegate excitement. >> what grade do you give the entrance? >> a-plus. never seen anything that before. >> i think david copperfield will sue. too vegas for me. >> as we mentioned, we spoke exclusively to the trumps when they arrived in cleveland, and mr. trump invited us on to the plane where we talked about a number of things including his wife's speech. >> welcome to cleveland. >> thank y
7:10 am
>> is it surreal to finally be here? we talked about this week for so long. >> i think it's just a great feeling and a great accomplishment but the real accomplishment, and you know what it is, make america great again, and that's what i am doing it for and why i am doing it. >> already there has been a couple contentious moments, and i am sure you heard about this. what is your reaction? >> that was not a role about me, and that was about changing rules in the year 2020. we got more votes than anybody in the history of the republican party. it's never happened like this, and i think the press liked to build it up, but it really was about rules changes for 2020. >> so much violence in the country in the last couple of weeks, people are on edge and tense and you add to that the passion t
7:11 am
political debate and there are people who truly afraid things could boil over in cleveland. would you be willing to everybody making a speech involved in the convention and say tone down the rhetoric. >> i think it's going to be a great rhetoric and also going to be law and order, we need law and order in the country. >> can you say no personal attacks, no vitriol, keep it civil? >> i think to a large extent, it is a convention, after all, and when you say civil, we can't be too civil when you have a situation like hillary clinton with all that she has done and all of the mistakes that she has made, so they will be brought up. i think it will be very civil. >> i watched your interview on "60 minutes" with mike pence and one of the things that came up in that was his vote tphft iraq war, and you said everybody is entitled to make a mistake. you have been hammering secretary
7:12 am
vote, and you have lost the right to do that. >> no. >> what is different about her versus pence? >> she is wrong on the war and syria and everything and she has bad judgment and bernie sanders said it, and i said it also, and bernie sanders said she suffered from bad judgment and she also suffered from bad instincts. >> your campaign manager picked a fight with the governor of the state and he criticized him for not showing up and he is embarrassing the state of ohio. do you agree? >> well, look, he signed a pledge, number one. honestly, he got beaten so badly, i won, and i guess, 37 states and even more than that, and he won one and if i got beaten that badly i wouldn't show up either. >> do you want to pick a
7:13 am
>> he may not be popular after the convention. >> is he embarrassing -- >> i love ohio. >> last thing, what do you want to come out of this week. you get to start it off tonight, mrs. trump, what would be a success for you? >> we want security and safety for all americans and also people around the world. what is going on now, it's not acceptable. we need love and compassion and kindness to bring us altogether. >> again, that was the trump's yesterday moments after they touched down here at the airport in cleveland. just ahead, we will get chris christie's take on this when he joins us live. you can catch the convention tonight 7:00 pacific time. >> and hillary clinton was out on the campaign train normally, and during the candidates lie
7:14 am
convention, and during her speech hillary clinton spoke about donald trump and the importance of voter registration. there's another huge story this morning. the international olympic committee holding emergency talks over a bombshell fireman allegation over wide stayed doping. bill neely has that story. >> this could be the biggest doping scandal in history, and if you read it in a spy tphoef
7:15 am
novel. >> when russia did badly at the vancouver winter games in 2010 -- >> russia fails to advance. >> dope and cover it up. and it worked. >> could it be the dream of a russian sweep. >> and russia dominated the games in sochi, and the success was driven by performance enhancing drug taking covered up by the state according to the anti-doping investigators that find that russia's sports ministry directed, controlled and over saw the agency. >> the soefpy law tore tree operated a unique sample swapping methodology. >> it's alleged the russianed carved a hole
7:16 am
kwraourin, samples. showcase, implied the u.s. directed the report. the olympic movement could find itself on the brink of division. katie lost >> and lost on a medal to a russian. >> and the fact that the system is taking a stand and doing something, makes me proud and even more motivated to continue doing what i am doing. >> the rio games are 17 days away, and the international olympic committee promised the toughest sanctions available, and that could mean a total russian ban. >> and that committee is meeting right now, and we may get a decision shortly. the cheating covered 30 sports, so it's very hard to see how a russian ban f
7:17 am
avoided whether that comes in the next hour or next week. matt, savannah? >> a huge story. thank you. >> amazing to think russia hosted the olympics just two shorts years ago. let's get a check on the weather. mr. roker, you down there? >> yeah, we are down on the floor, and you can see all the sky booths, and just a short while ago folks were cheering on lebron james and the cavs. here's america samoa, and where is ohio, they are over there. they are right next to the american -- the northern mayor yawna islands. they got pushed off to the side. this is the vip sweet right here, and of course it has the nice five gold stars, and tiffany trump was in there, and mike spence, and bob dole, who is going to be

7:33 am
>> it might be small potatoes and does it signal anything about the staff work of the campaign, the fact that something like this might slip through the cracks? >> they are trying to do a lot of things at one time, and i know melania, and i think she worked very hard on the speech and a lot of what i heard last night sounded very much like her and the way she speaks about donald all the time and having been friends with them for 14 years, that sounded like her last night, and i think it's important that the americans get a picture of her relationship with her husband. >> you were the keynote speaker of the republican convention four years ago and tonight i know you hoped to be here in a different role, and so much as been written, governor, since you were not chosen, and some of the articles say you were angry and one said you were livid at not being chosen. >> the truth is i never expected

7:35 am
reports that pence got the call and on thursday morning you were still taking calls from trump himself, and did you mislead you and make you feel you were still in the running? >> i was never confuse pwd anything, and donald made his choice official on friday morning, and he spoke to me and i completely understood the choice that he made and i support mike, you know, we have been governors together and i campaigned hard for him in 2012 and i am really happy donald picked a governor, and if it was not me i am glad -- >> that's what he told the press, you were still in the running? >> we understood each other perfectly as we usually do. >> when you take to the podium tonight, will you speak as the former candidate or the governor of new jersey, and were you speaking about a former
7:36 am
>> yes. >> what is going to happen most of the time? >> tonight what you will see is somebody who has experience in the courtroom and knows how to make a case. >> what case do you want to make? >> i will wait for tonight to make the case, but tonight donald trump is ready to be the president of the us and perhaps his opponent will not. >> will it be a pro trump speech or anti-hilary speech? >> we'll find out tonight. >> i know i won't be a governor again. i know at one time i said i would rather commit suicide than be in the senate -- >> i see the bumper stickers now. >> at this point, i don't have any plans to run for public office again, but you never know where life is going to bring you and i never t
