Transcript for Melania Trump weighs in on the #MeToo movement
We move to ABC's interview with the first lady, chief national affairs correspondent Tom llamas traveled with Melania trump on her first solo trip to Africa and she addressed several sensitive topics including the me too movement. Tom is here. Good morning. We sat do you know with the first lady in Kenya but we were with her every step of the way during her tour through four African countries seeing firsthand how this first lady is trying to make her mark. On the road from Cairo to Giza we see them and guarding every stretch of highway. We're in an armored van traveling in the first lady's motorcade. Mrs. Trump's first solo trip abroad means ovary step will be guarded. In Egypt, the first lady touring some of history's greatest landmarks. At times appearing to make these monuments part of her own personal runway. In many ways like the great sphinx she visited Melania trump also remains a mystery but now for the first time opening up about her life and her time in the white house during our exclusive sit-down interview and revealing some of the obstacles she's faced. What's the most surprising thing about being first lady for you? It's sad to see that organizations and foundations I want to partner with choose not to because of the administration and I feel they are choosing the politics over helping others. Can you give me any examples? I would not talk about it. They know who they are. I don't want to put them out in front of the world but they know who they are. Reporter: In our interview we also asked the first lady about some of the major events that have shaped and rocked her husband's white house. And the country, including the me too movement. Think of your son, think of your husband. I've had many false accusations. Reporter: Just last week her husband sharing that as the FBI investigated judge Brett Kavanaugh over an accusation of high school sexual assault. What is your take about the me too movement, though? Do you believe in them? Do you support the me too movement? I support the women and they need to be heard. We need to support them and also men, not just women. Do you think men in the news that have been accused of sexual assault have been treated unfairly. We need to have hard evidence that, you know, that if you are accused of something, show the evidence. Some women might hear that and say how can you say that. You need to stand with women. I do stand with women but we need to show the evidence. You cannot just say to somebody, I was, you know, sexually assaulted and or you did that to me or -- because sometimes the media goes too far and the way they portray some stories, it's not correct. It's not right. We spoke much more about the me too movement along with other current issues. No question was off the table and tomorrow right here on "Gma" why she personally wanted to take on cyberbullying. It's likely not what you think. Her revelation shocked us. Can't wait for that. "Being Melania: The first lady" airs Friday at 10:00 P.M. Right here on ABC.
