Melania Trump Speaks: Accusers 'Need To Have Really Hard Evidence'

Melania on #MeToo: ‘Need to have really hard evidence,’ because ‘sometimes the media goes too far’

ABC News' Chief National Affairs Correspondent Tom Llamas sat down with the first lady for a wide-ranging interview during her first solo trip overseas to Africa earlier this month.

"I support the women, and they need to be heard", Trump began. "We need to support them and also men, not just women".

Llamas said that some people might take the first lady's statement to mean that she doesn't actually support women.

In the interview promoting her documentary "Being Melania - The First Lady", she said she wouldn't name names, but "they know who they are". But, she tells ABC News in an interview to be broadcast Friday, the women must produce "hard evidence" of the alleged assault/rape/sexual misconduct. 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".

She even threw a little shade to organizations she'd apparently like to work with, but don't want to associate with the Trump "administration". "We need to support them". In the clip of Trump's interview with ABC News anchor Tom Llamas, the first lady made her position on reporting sexual assault loud and clear to survivors.

Kavanaugh's former schoolmate Dr Christine Blasey Ford claimed he'd tried to rape her during a house party during the early 1980s, and gave a tearful account of what she says happened to a Senate Judiciary Committee.
