Social media exploded with statements and accusations that the GOP frontrunner's wife had lifted part of First Lady Michelle Obama's speech from her 2008 address at the Democratic National Convention.

Side by side comparisons show that the text of Trump's speech is nearly identical, down to each word, to that of Obama's speech given on the first night of the DNC eight years ago.

The Trump campaign denied Tuesday that Melania plagiarized the speech, calling the accusations "just really absurd."

Campaign manager Paul Manafort said Melania wouldn't have done such a thing, knowing how important the speech was.

"To think that she would do something like that knowing how scrutinized her speech was going to be last night is just really absurd," Trump's campaign chairman Paul Manafort told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "New Day."

Relations were tense on the convention floor Monday afternoon after a motion by anti-Trump delegates for a roll call vote in a last-ditch effort to block Trump was shot down. Pro-Trump delegates began chanting, "USA, USA" over the anti-Trump delegates who were chanting as well.

THEME:

Tuesday's theme is "Make America Work Again" and speakers will focus on job creation, economic growth and issues that middle-class families face.

House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will lead the process to formally nominate the GOP's presumptive presidential and vice presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Mike Pence, respectively.

SPEAKERS:

Two of Trump's children, Tiffany and Donald Trump Jr., will speak Tuesday.

Gov. Chris Christie and Dr. Ben Carson, once GOP presidential hopefuls, will also speak.

Significant GOP leaders like Ryan, McConnell, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Gov. Asa Hutchinson will speak.

Keeping in line with Trump's unorthodox campaign, TV star Kimberlin Brown, UFC President Dana White and pro golfer Natalie Gulbis are part of the lineup as well.

HOW TO WATCH:

The RNC released an app that features a convention schedule, a map of Cleveland and the convention complex, and an option to watch the convention speakers live. The app is available for both Apple and Android users.
