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

Melania Trump had two big moments this week - her first solo trip as the First Lady and a sit-down interview with Good Morning America.

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.

When asked if accused men have received unfair treatment, the first lady said there should be proof to support the accusations.

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

Both Minnesota and Miami remain hopeful that a deal involving possibly a third party will alternately help them offload their surplus contracts.

Trump also gave her thoughts on #MeToo, which seemed to boil down to supporting women when their claims can be backed by evidence.

"It's sad to see that organizations and foundations I want to partner with choose not to because of the administration. And also men, not just women", the first lady said. Allegations of sexual misconduct by multiple women almost derailed the Supreme Court confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, who vehemently denied the allegations. Echoing her husband and Republicans who have accused the press of eagerly reporting stories of misconduct without evidence, Trump added that "sometimes the media goes too far".

"And I feel like they're choosing the politics over helping others".

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.
