7:05 am
considerate, so funny and so real. >> for my father, impossible is just a starting point. >> reporter: in prime time, don described something never seen before in american politics, a blue collar billionaire. >> he didn't hide out behind a desk in an executive suite. he spent his career with regular americans. >> reporter: it was his rival who got the most attention. >> the hillary clinton. >> hillary clinton. >> hillary clinton. >> hillary clinton! >> new jersey governor chris christie, a former. u.s attorney, presented a political indictment on clinton's e-mail scandal and policy choices. >> i say hillary clinton, the charge of putting herself ahead of american, guilty or not guilty? >> reporter: some in the crowd wanted to skip over judicial niceties. clinton's campaign responded on twitter. if you think chris christie can
7:06 am
lecture anyone on ethics, we have a bridge to sell you. a reference to christie's infamous 2013 bridgegate scandal. >> listen. if hillary clinton wants to take me on, i will take her on until the end of the campaign and not much of her will be left. >> reporter: arizona senator jeff flake went to twitter writing republicans can make the case she shouldn't be elected without jumping the shark. gayle? >> thank you, major. we are learning more about how melania trump's speech on monday night echoed michelle obama's address at the 2008 democratic convention. campaign sources tell "the new york times" the nominee's wife rewrote much of the speech herself. nancy cordes is here with more. >> reporter: what we have learned is the campaign originally hired two well-regarded outside speech writers to craft this key address and they handed over their version more than a
7:07 am
ago. one that did not include the sections that were lifted almost word forword from michelle obama's convention address. >> your word is your bond that you do what you say you're going to do. >> your word is your bond and you do what you say. >> reporter: a source with knowledge of the original tells cbs news that the speech, as delivered, wore almost no referab resemblance to the two speech writers hired for the occasion. >> the height of your achievement is your dreams and your willing to work hard for them. >> reporter: matthew scully and john mcconnell were brought on to write melania's address after she worked on paul ryan's convention speech in 2012 and sarah palin's in 2008. >> i guess a small town mayor is sort of like a community organizer, except that you have
7:08 am
>> reporter: trump campaign chairman paul manafort won't say who scrapped the original speech and added in this. >> the values. that you work hard for what you want in life. >> reporter: he also won't admit that the new version cribbed from mrs. obama. >> similarities. >> a word forword in a number of places. >> it's basically three places in the speech and fragments of word. >> she was badly served by staff. >> reporter: "the washington post" columnist michael gershin was a speech writer in the white house. >> i think there was a problem here and they looked like a campaign that can't get its act together but can't admit obvious true things in public and deal with that in a forthright way. >> reporter: he says it has the perception the trump campaign isn't ready for prime time, especially since there is inexpensive, even free
7:09 am
that is used routinely by speech offices that makes sure it isn't phrases that are used before. >> dan senor is here with us. a you couple of points off what nancy just said. this didn't have to be a vetting of the speech or if you make a mistake, own up early and move on. >> both things are true. most national campaigns have teams of people who usually vet and go over every word and semicolon and every speech. you're not only responsible for your words but your spouse's words and every surrogate and everybody who goes up on that podium, you have swore and teams of people in the 2012 convention we were reading about every single speech. >> that begs the question do they have that kind of structure at this convention? >> they don't have it any convention or in the campaign or the whole campaign during the primary
7:10 am
trump a twitter feed and advance team. that's it. no infrastructure. that is when they were competing in a field of 20 million voters nationwide. now the national general election you're talking about 120, 130 million voters and focused on you rather than 17 other candidates. the scrutiny is intense and they don't have the infrastructure to handle it. >> why is it hard to own up to a mistake? this morning saying a trillion to 1 odds that a speech would phrase things like that twice and another official says it's a pony defense and you get a twilight sparkle and they are coming up with all sorts of excuses and we are talking about it still. >> actually, donald trump's son i thought gave an impression speech and we should be talking about that. instead because they can't own up to this prolongs the story. simply say
7:11 am
the same a couple of days from when the story broke. some stuff we made a mistake and explain and clean it up and move on. >> is it the media to blame here? i talked to a lot of delegates and they don't care. they said leave her alone, give her a break and move on. she did a great job and no one is talking about that. is it the media? >> people in the room may not care but 30 plus million people watching the speech and we are still talking about it being plagiarized. >> you and i are about the same age and we attended the same number of conventions. what do you think? this was half-empty hall and something like i've never seen before. >> i was on the floor right there during the roll call vote. i've been to many conventions. during the roll call vote, the energy and intensity during that moment is palpable. people are swinging from the ceiling because they are so excited about their nominee. you could hear a pin drop. it was muted in here. i think this is a party that has
7:12 am
but not excited about him. >> it's being reported this morning that former president george w. bush was speaking to former aides and said i might be the last republican president. this party is changing. >> yeah. i felt that a lot. i felt that here a lot the last couple of days. i feel a lot of people saying is the party dissolving? keep in mind it is true that the bush's and romney's and other traditional party leaders are not here and people in the hall saying it's a movement and they are not part of the movement. but the problem is romney only got 61 million votes last time and still lost. you need at least 61 million voters more than that to be competitive which means you need the people who resonate with the romney's and bush's. >> is it significant more mention of hillary clinton than donald trump? >> yes. the way they are trying to get republicans excited we know you may not love donald trump but if you don't get behind him, hillary clinton will be president and it's all about
7:13 am
>> dan, thank you. we spoke to donald trump jr. last night in a wide ranging interview and talked before the nominee's eldest son spoke last night. his youngest son and ivanka, his daughter, will speak tonight. he says there is a reason for the family's role in the campaign. >> i think the voters of the country said maybe we want to get away from the establishment and maybe bring new thoughts to these ideas. i think using characters that aren't the same old people and sometimes got in these positions. i think that is going to be something different and new. >> day one of this convention the featured speaker was melania trump. the crowd loved it. then we learned that several of the statements were apparently lifted from michelle obama's 2008 speech. was this a disservice to her an an embarrassment? >> it's not here what we are here to tal
7:14 am
i thought she did excellent. >> corey lewandowski, the previous campaign manager, suggested what happened to melania's speech is amateur hour with the new campaign manager, paul manafort. >> there is a reason. it has nothing to do with that and i've heard other people say is the family on the outskirts with paul? totally nonsense. we can't be more happier the way he is tackling these things and has thisship handling the organization and he has done a phenomenal job and i wish we had him on earlier. >> this state, ohio, we are having this convention, how important is it for your father to win this state in order to win the presidency? >> listen. it's an incredibly important state. one of the first jobs he ever, you know, owned and worked on was in cincinnati, ohio. there is something near and dear to his heart here. the hard working blue collar workers that made this country what it is and they don't have a voice any
7:15 am
>> the vice presidential pick, mike pence. you were very involved in that. what is the top thing to you said building should be my father's running mate? >> it was a tough decision. when we met with him and my siblings met with him and right away you saw this is the guy and that is for my father. they are very different personality wise and i think you need that balance. you have my father being that guy and you don't need two of those guys. one of the reasons he got in the politics is seeing the disasters and scandals of the clinton administration in the '90s and he wanted to come in and dot right thing and be the right politician and we don't have enough of him in this country. >> he very impressive. the other question i asked of the 71 prime time speakers only 7 are black and three are latino. women a third of those speaking in prime time. he says he is okay with that lineup even though it shows a lack of diversity. >> it seems they were telling corey lewandowski to sit down
7:16 am
and they were very much behind paul manafort. >> one thing they said the party needed was to reach out and expand their membership. >> indeed. cleveland police are bracing for the possibility of hostile new protests today outside of a convention. demonstrators tried to force their way into the streets yesterday but officers were able to break up the crowd. now, the protests have been mostly pretty peaceful. police had anticipated making a thousand arrests every day of the convention but so far only five arrests in total they told us. cbs news will continue our special coverage from the convention tonight at 10:00/9:00 central and mike pence will officially accept the vice presidential nomination. you can find nonstop coverage all day on cbsn. france is preparing to strike the last isis stronghold in iraq. isis captured mosul more than two years ago.

7:37 am
what does it mean, jon? >> reporter: this could ab big deal and the way it happened is not mosquitoes flying up from latin america to the united states. they only travel a half a mile their whole life. it is a person infected in brazil and coming to the united states and uninfected mosquito in the united states would bite that person and become infected and turn around and bite an uninfected person and now you have local transmission. >> isn't this exactly what the cdc was worried about, that this would then mean many more transmissions here in the united states? >> that is exactly right, norah. i should say that we have learned that sexual transmission has not been ruled out yet. so there is going to be some further testing that goes on in the next couple of days and it's expected by friday that possibility will be established
