US First Lady Melania Trump refused to be painted into a corner by the #MeToo movement.
Showing support for the notion of ‘innocent until proven guilty’, Mrs Trump said that when there are allegations of sexual abuse there needs to be ‘really hard evidence’ and that accusers should ‘show the evidence’.
Mrs Trump was interviewed on Wednesday during her trip to Kenya by US TV network ABC and asked whether she supports the #MeToo movement.
‘I support the women, and they need to be heard. We need to support them. And, you know, also men, not just women,’ Mrs Trump said.
US President Donald Trump, who has been accused of sexual assault by several women, has said it is ‘a scary time’ for men such as Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh who are facing allegations from many years ago.
Judge Kavanaugh and Mr Trump have both denied the allegations against them.
