Riled up, the crowd yelled "Lock her up!"
Trump's campaign refused to acknowledge anything wrong with the striking similarities in the language of a speech given eight years ago by Obama and the one delivered Monday evening by Melania Trump.
CLEVELAND - Donald Trump faces an embarrassing plagiarism scandal that tarnished his wife Melania's prime-time speech to a Republican national convention roiled by an opening day rank-and-file revolt.
Republicans were also set to place in nomination Indiana Governor Mike Pence, 57, Trump's choice for his vice presidential running mate.
Party leaders concentrated their fire on Clinton.
It wasn't just the odd political and logical contradictions-he criticized Clinton for not being hawkish enough on Syria when Trump wants to stay away from that mess; he hung the Iran deal on her even though she had little to do with it; he criticized her for being too soft on Russian Federation when his boss is incredibly, uncomfortably, close to Putin. Watching my children put me over the top earlier.
Meanwhile, initial reports were that Donald Trump Jr. appeared to have done something similar in his speech on Tuesday night.
For the second night in a row, a speech given by a member of Donald Trump's family is raising eyebrows for lines previously used elsewhere. Tuesday night's speakers were left with the task of restoring that image.
"What we did getting the party's nomination, I will never forget it", he said.
McConnell has been more measured than Ryan in his criticism of the nominee.

This time, it's also another opportunity for discord to be heard.
His daughter, Tiffany Trump, said she always enjoys introducing her dad to her friends and touted him as someone with "natural charm and no facade".
"Our future hangs in the balance". "It's just another example, as far as we're concerned, that when Hillary Clinton is threatened by a female, the first thing she does is try to destroy the person".
National security and Clinton are the two subjects that have most unified Republicans this week. "And we're supposed to be excited about that?" said Ryan.
Donald Trump officially won the Republican Party's presidential nomination Tuesday, making the businessman the GOP standard-bearer after a rollicking primary season that saw him vanquish 16 rivals.
"Mr Speaker, it's my distinct honour and great pleasure to nominate Donald J Trump for the office of president of the United States of America", Sessions said.
"Congratulations, Dad! We love you!" he exclaimed from his front-row seat in the NY delegation.
In an interview with NBC News, Buckley downplayed the similarities.
On the floor, the anti-Trump movement ended with a whimper.
"From a young age, my parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want in life", she said, "that your word is your bond, and you do what you say and keep your promise, that you treat people with respect".
She spoke of his "natural charm" and said he had "no facade" when meeting others.
"One of the keys to presidential politics is let the steam out, change the channel", he said of the emerging scandal.
