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

The first lady also took the opportunity to express her frustration about being snubbed by foundations she'd like to work with because of opposition to the Trump White House.

ABC News reporter Tom Llamas interviewed Melania Trump during her trip to Africa for a "20/20" special to air October 12.

In a teaser for her upcoming interview with ABC's 20/20, Mrs Trump said: 'I support the women and they need to be heard.

When asked if men accused of sexual assault have been treated unfairly, Melania said women "need to have really hard evidence".


In an interview with ABC News that airs on Friday, first lady Melania Trump says women accusing men of sexual assault must have "hard evidence" to prove their claim. She added that she supports women, and also men. The special is called "Being Melania - The First Lady". President Trump is pushing the conspiracy theory that Kavanaugh protesters were paid actors, financed by George Soros. "It's not right", she said.

During an impromptu briefing with press traveling with her in Egypt last week, Trump would not say if she believed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's accuser, Christine Blasey-Ford. He also has expressed concern for men in this #MeToo moment. "You can not just say to somebody, 'I was sexually assaulted, ' or, 'You did that to me, ' because sometimes the media goes too far".

It's not the only time she spoke about sexual assault allegations during her trip.

"I feel they are choosing politics over helping others", she said.
