Melania Trump says women ‘need evidence’ if they say they’re victims

First lady Melania Trump speaks out about the #MeToo movement - and also defends men.

Trump was speaking to anchor Tom Llamas in an interview about her upcoming ABC documentary called "Being Melania - The First Lady", which airs at 10 p.m. (EDT) on Thursday.

Melania Trump says her help is being shunned by aid organizations because they don't want to be associated with her husband's administration. But we need to show the evidence.

Melania Trump, who sat down with Tom Llamas in Kenya as she toured four African countries, also got asked what has surprised her most about her time as First Lady.

First lady Melania Trump says women who make accusations of sexual abuse "need to be heard" and supported, but so do men. The reporter did follow-up on the First Lady's comment by noting that some in the audience might react by saying "you need to stand with women". "We need to support them". Echoing her husband and Republicans who have accused the press of eagerly reporting stories of misconduct without evidence, Trump added that "sometimes the media goes too far".

During the 2016 presidential campaign, at least 13 women accused Donald Trump of misbehavior ranging from sexual harassment to sexual assault.

"And I feel like they're choosing the politics over helping others".

But Kavanaugh denied the claims against him, with his confirmation to the Supreme Court confirmed last weekend.
