WINK at RNC: Trump denies VP offer to noticeably absent Kasich

Published: Updated:

CLEVELAND – Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a previously staunch rival and high profile no-show at the Republican National Convention, was offered the vice president position by Donald Trump’s campaign, according to reports from the New York Times.

But Trump’s campaign denied ever offering the position to Kasich on Wednesday.

This news comes with the announcement of a resignation in Trump’s campaign party. One of Melania Trump’s speech writers admitted that she incorporated Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Convention speech into Melania Trump’s address, parts of which received huge backlash for apparent lifting. That speech writer said Melania admires Michelle Obama. Donald Trump rejected the writer’s resignation, saying that it was an innocent mistake.

While Melania told reporters that she wrote the speech with little help before Monday’s delivery, Trump’s campaign party blamed Hillary Clinton’s administration. The similarities to the First Lady’s speech were originally announced by an unemployed television reporter on Twitter.
