Melania Trump says #MeToo victims should only come forward with proof

She also is asked why she wore the 'I Really Don't Care Do You?' jacket to visit immigrant children who had been separated at the border by her husband's administration.

Trump was speaking to anchor Tom Llamas in an interview about her upcoming ABC documentary called "Being Melania - The First Lady", which airs at 10 p.m. (EDT) on Thursday.

"I do stand with women, but we need to show the evidence", Trump said.

After describing how she was being blackballed, when Llamas asked her to name names she said: "I would not talk about it, they know who they are".

"I do stand with women, but we need to show the evidence", Melania said. But, she tells ABC News in an interview to be broadcast Friday, the women must produce "hard evidence" of the alleged assault/rape/sexual misconduct. "And also men, not just women", the first lady said. "You can not just say to somebody, I was sexually assaulted, or you did that to me, because sometimes the media goes too far".

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.

The broadcaster is yet to release what the First Lady says in response. Allegations of sexual misconduct by multiple women almost derailed the Supreme Court confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, who vehemently denied the allegations. "It's not right", she added.
