Trump also said she supports women, but she echoed her husband, President Donald Trump, adding that men need to be supported, too.

In her first TV interview, set to air in its entirety on Friday, first lady Melania Trump discusses her role in the White House and the #MeToo movement.

"Do you think men in the news that have been accused of sexual assault, sexual harassment have been treated unfairly?" correspondent Tom Llamas asked.

Trump refused to provide examples and said the groups "know who they are". "I would not talk about it", she responded.

Leftists and feminists were hoping they could use President Trump's alleged philandering to bait First Lady Melania Trump into being an outspoken advocate of #MeToo following the Kavanaugh witch hunt, but their hopes have been dashed.

"I support the women, and they need to be heard", Trump said in an ABC News interview taped last week during her trip to Africa. The FLOTUS also tacitly endorsed her husband and stepsons' call to support accused men as well.

Melania Trump demanded "hard evidence" as the only standard of proof for sexual assault - but insisted she stands with women.

"You can not just say to somebody ..."

She said to ABC host Tom Llamas, broadcast Wednesday, that groups are "chosing the politics over helping others", as they don't want to be associated with him.
