Melania Trump says women ‘need evidence’ if they claim they’re victims
Melania Trump recently made comments about women claiming to be victims in a CNN exclusive. The post has since gone viral and some people agree, while others strongly disagree with her opinion.
In an October 2016 interview after her husband Donald Trump was fighting over 13 reports of misconduct, she said:
“Every assault should be taken care of in a court of law. And to accuse, no matter who it is, a man or a woman, without evidence is damaging and unfair.”
First lady Melania Trump said victims who make accusations of sexual misconduct “need to have really hard evidence” in a recently taped interview, echoing a statement she made in October 2016 amid allegations against her husband.
“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.
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,” said Trump. “We need to support them and, you know, also men, not just women.”
