The White House is being accused of plagiarizing a press release that the administration issued Monday praising oil giant Exxon Mobil for announcing new investments and job creation in the United States.

Anchor Jake Tapper of CNN noted the similarities between the Exxon and the White House press releases in a tweet.

"White House press release plagiarizes paragraph from Exxon press release," Tapper tweeted.

Tapper included in his tweet a side-by-side comparison of what Exxon put out announcing a new $20 billion investment in the U.S., and the White House release that soon followed. The excerpts showed that the White House press release matched Exxon's verbatim.

The White House appeared to have taken background information from the Exxon press release and added it to the bottom two paragraphs of the press release that it sent out with the president's remarks.

Before those two graphs, the release included a statement from President Trump praising the Exxon announcement.

"This is exactly the kind of investment, economic development and job creation that will help put Americans back to work," Trump said in a statement released by the White House in response to Exxon Mobil CEO Darren Woods discussing the company's plans for $20 billion in new investments earlier in the day.

On Twitter, the president thanked the company and remarked: "We are already winning again, America!"

At a conference in Houston Monday, according to Exxon Mobil, Woods highlighted plans to invest in 11 chemical, refining, lubricant and liquefied natural gas projects on the Gulf Coast in Texas and Louisiana. He also said the projects would create 45,000 jobs paying an average of $100,000.

The graph that the White House apparently cribbed from appears four graphs down in the Exxon press release. It reads:

ExxonMobil is strategically investing in new refining and chemical-manufacturing projects in the U.S. Gulf Coast region to expand its manufacturing and export capacity. The company's Growing the Gulf expansion program, consists of 11 major chemical, refining, lubricant and liquefied natural gas projects at proposed new and existing facilities along the Texas and Louisiana coasts. Investments began in 2013 and are expected to continue through at least 2022.

The White House press release read:

Trump's Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is the former chairman and CEO of ExxonMobil.
