Melania Trump: Women accusing men should ‘show the evidence’

The first lady offers her thoughts on the #MeToo movement in a new interview with ABC News' Tom Llamas set to air in its entirety Friday night.

"We need to have really hard evidence that, if you are accused of something, show the evidence", Trump said.

When asked if she supports the Me Too movement, Melania said she supports women who have come forward to speak about their negative sexual experiences. "You can not just say to somebody, 'I was sexually assaulted, ' or, 'You did that to me, ' because sometimes the media goes too far".

President Trump, who has also been accused by numerous women of sexual misconduct, sided with his nominee by calling the claims a "hoax" and saying, "It is a very scary time for young men in America, where you can be guilty of something you may not be guilty of".

A teaser released by ABC also shows Llamas asking Mrs Trump about her husband's alleged infidelities. "It's not right", she said.

Even so, the first lady couldn't totally escape having a frank conversation about #MeToo.

Trump was away on a trip to Kenya last week as Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing took place.

Llamas did not specifically ask about allegations against newly-sworn in Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

"And also, you know, also men".

She refused to name names, but said: 'It's sad to see that organizations and foundations that I want to partner with chose not to because of the administration, ' says the First Lady.
