"I support the women, and they need to be heard", Trump said when asked whether she supported the Me Too movement. "But we need to show the evidence".

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.

"We need to have really hard evidence if you accuse of something; show the evidence", the First Lady 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.

Trump also said that some organizations and foundations were unwilling to partner with her due to their distaste for the administration in another portion of the interview aired on Tuesday. "And, you know, also men, not just women".

She said to ABC host Tom Llamas, broadcast Wednesday, that groups are "chosing the politics over helping others", as they don't want to be associated with him. You can not just say to somebody, I was, you know, sexually assaulted and or you did that to me, ' states Melania.

Trump was away on a trip to Kenya last week as Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing took place. You can not just say to somebody "I was sexually assaulted, ' or 'you did that to me". "It's not right", she added. "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.
