"I support the women and they need to be heard", Melania Trump said of the movement in general.

"If you accuse (someone) of something, show the evidence", Trump said in a sit-down interview with ABC News that took place in Kenya last week during her first major solo trip to Africa.

"Do you think men in the news that have been accused of sexual assault, sexual harassment have been treated unfairly?" correspondent Tom Llamas asked. She added that she supports women, and also men.

Llamas said that some people might take the first lady's statement to mean that she doesn't actually support 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. He has called them all liars.
