Many people have connected her "hard evidence" comment to the audio recording of the president, as well as her position in the birther movement that questioned former President Barack Obama's USA citizenship despite clear evidence that he was born in the country.

Being Melania - The First Lady, airs at 10 p.m. Friday on ABC. She said that the focus of her initiative is internet abuse since it's something she is personally familiar with.

Melania Trump supports women coming forward with sexual assault allegations against men as the #MeToo movement rolls on, but she wants to see evidence, too.

"We need to have really hard evidence if you accuse of something; show the evidence", the First Lady said.

Although she supports women, she details how men need to be supported as well. "I do stand with women but we need to show the evidence", Trump went on.

CNN's Jeffrey Toobin and Nia-Malika Henderson were baffled by Melania Trump's comments about the #MeToo movement on New Day Thursday morning.

"I could say that I'm the most bullied person in the world", she said in an interview recorded during her recent tour of Africa.

To be fair, it's still one of the biggest shows on television, behind only This Is Us in key demo ratings. The lowest season premiere ratings still belong to Season 1, which garnered 5.35 million viewers.

Trump refused to provide examples and said the groups "know who they are".

'I'm not going to put them out in front of the world'.

Also in the ABC interview, the first lady talked about how her wish to work on certain projects has been stymied by organizations who do not approve of her husband's administration.

And it appeared, as her husband often does, she feels the media could do better.

People, it turned out, did in fact care.

Asked by ABC News Chief National Affairs Correspondent Tom Llamas whether there are still people in the president's administration "he can't trust", the first lady said yes.
