To cite a speech, you can use 'Generic' as the reference type. The important fields to be covered are - speaker's name, the title of the lecture or speech (if known), the meeting or the event where the speech was given, the location of the speech (including place and city).

You can mention the URL of the website as the source under the 'URL' field. If the website is the original place of publication you can fill in the URL in the 'Publisher' and the 'Original Publication' fields.
