“It was a beautiful childhood. My parents were wonderful,” she said at a campaign event in Berwyn, Pennsylvania. “Of course we all knew about this incredible place called ‘America’.
“America meant, if you could dream it, you could become it.”
However it was this last line that triggered a journalists memory, recalling a 2011 interview with Marla Maples.
Who is Marla Maples you ask? Wait for it… Donald Trump’s second wife, who was married to the billionaire businessman in the 90s.
While the line could be seen to be rather generic, the fact that it was first delivered by Maples makes it all the more bizarre.

“As adults, many of us are able to handle mean words, even lies. Children and teenagers can be fragile,” she said.
“They are hurt when they are made fun of or made to feel less in looks or intelligence. This makes their life hard and forces them to hide and retreat.
“Our culture has gotten too mean and too rough, especially to children and teenagers.”
The irony of her comments not lost on Twitter, with users reminding her she is married to one.
