Melania Trump says #MeToo victims should only come forward with proof

Melania Trump says #MeToo victims should only come forward with proof”

US first lady Melania Trump talks to media as she visits the ancient statue of Sphinx, with the body of a lion and a human head, at the historic Giza Pyramids site near Cairo, Egypt on Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018.

First lady Melania Trump, rarely the subject of an independent interview, is expected to speak candidly in an interview airing Friday about her marriage, President Donald Trump's alleged infidelity, the #MeToo movement and the infamous "I don't care" jacket that made headlines around the world.

Speaking to ABC on her recent trip to Africa, Trump said, "I do stand with women".

After describing how she was being blackballed, when Llamas asked her to name names she said: "I would not talk about it, they know who they are".

Llamas said that some people might take the first lady's statement to mean that she doesn't actually support women. Trump spoke with ABC News in an interview, a portion of which was aired on "Good Morning America" Wednesday.

The former supermodel also told the ABC News anchor that the "most surprising thing" about her role as first lady has been the number of humanitarian organizations that have refused to work with her because of the president's politics.

"It's sad to see that organizations and foundations I want to partner with choose not to because of the administration".

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

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. "It's not right", she added.
