The first lady also took the opportunity to express her frustration about being snubbed by foundations she'd like to work with because of opposition to the Trump White House.

During her visit to Kenya, Trump made time for an exclusive sit-down interview with ABC News' Tom Llamas, who wasted no time in pinning down her views.

"I support the women and they need to be heard", Melania Trump told ABC's "Good Morning America" in a snippet of an interview aired Wednesday.

In her upcoming interview with Tom Llamas of ABC, Melania Trump endorsed the #MeToo movement insofar as the accusers can produce "hard evidence" to support their claims.

Trump 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".

Trump said that there needs to be "really hard evidence" to prove that a man has committed any kind of sexual misconduct.

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".

First lady Melania Trump speaks out about the #MeToo movement - and also defends men.

'Because sometimes the media goes too far and the way they portray some stories, it's not correct. Her husband is in the news calling a lie and a "hoax" Christine Blasey Ford's allegation she was sexually assaulted by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in high school.
