United States first lady Melania Trump said victims who make accusations of sexual misconduct “need to have really hard evidence”

“If you accuse (someone) of something, show the evidence,” Melania Trump said in an interview that took place in Kenya last week with ABC News during her trip to Africa.

She also said she supports women, but she echoed her husband, President Donald Trump, adding that men need to be supported, too.

“I support the women and they need to be heard,” said Trump. “We need to support them and, you know, also men, not just women.”

She added that women who come forward as victims should be prepared to back up their claims.

“I do stand with women, but we need to show the evidence. You cannot just say to somebody, ‘I was sexually assaulted,’ or, ‘You did that to me,’ because sometimes the media goes too far, and the way they portray some stories it’s, it’s not correct, it’s not right,” she said.
