Melania Trump: The Story Behind the Speech She Didn’t Deliver

A draft prepared by two Republican speechwriters was not used.

An early version of the speech crafted by GOP speechwriters Matthew Scully and John McConnell was apparently disregarded and shelved by the Trump campaign.

The pair wrote a speech and submitted a draft to Trump's campaign over a month ago.

According to a knowledgeable source, Kushner indicated his approval of the speech draft shortly after it was submitted, but the speechwriters never heard from him again about it.

The speech delivered by Melania Trump last night included almost nothing of the draft written by Scully and McConnell.

In an interview with NBC News aboard Trump's plane Monday evening ahead of her speech, Melania Trump said she wrote her speech with "as little help as possible."
