MELANIA ON #MeTOO: I Stand with Women, but ‘We Need Evidence’

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.10.18

First Lady Melania Trump delivered her first major interview with ABC News during her recent trip to Africa this week; saying she absolutely “supports women” coming forward with allegations of sexual assault but “we need to show the evidence.”

Mrs. Trump was speaking with ABC’s Tom Llamas in an interview set for release Wednesday when she weighed-in on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation battle and the growing “Me Too” movement.

“I do stand with women, but we need to show the evidence,” the First Lady told ABC News. “You cannot just say to somebody, ‘I was sexually assaulted,’ or ‘you did that to me.’ Because sometimes the media goes too far, and the way they portray some stories, it’s not correct. It’s not right.”

“What is your take about the #MeToo movement, though? Do you believe in them? Do you support the #MeToo movement?” asked ABC’s Tom Llamas.

“I support the women, and they need to be heard,” said Mrs. Trump. “We need to support them and also men, not just women.”

First Lady Melania Trump landed in Ghana Tuesday; kicking off her first solo international trip without President Trump where she plans to visit five countries in just five days.

According to Fox News, Mrs. Trump is expected to stop at schools, hospitals, and orphanages and intends to focus on the health and well-being of children; echoing her ‘Be Best’ campaign aimed to “shine a spotlight” on bullying and other issues impacting young people.

“Trump, 48, also had tea with Ghana’s first lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, at the presidential palace, known as the Jubilee House. The two women traded gifts: a White House tray in a signed leather case for Akufo-Addo and a Kente cloth and artifacts for Trump,” writes Fox.

After Ghana, the First Lady will travel to Malawi, Kenya, and Egypt.

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.28.18

Melania Trump arrived at the US-Mexico border in Arizona Thursday afternoon, kicking off a regional visit to view detention centers housing migrants and their families.

According to Fox News, the First Lady’s visit comes as Democrats and a growing list of liberal lawmakers pledge to abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, claiming the department was “tearing at the fabric” of American society.

“The visit comes a week after Mrs. Trump traveled to the border town of McAllen, Texas, to meet with officials there dealing with detained families. She also met with children at one of the facilities,” writes Fox. “But that trip was overshadowed by a jacket the first lady wore to and from Texas that said on the back: ‘I really don’t care, do u?’”

Just this week, liberal activists attempted to “shut down” ICE headquarters in Washington, DC; urging workers inside to “Quit their jobs” in protest of “family separations” along the US-Mexico border.
