Melania Trump On Me Too: We Should Support Men, 'Not Just Women'

ABC News' Chief National Affairs Correspondent Tom Llamas sat down with the first lady for a wide-ranging interview during her first solo trip overseas to Africa earlier this month.

Asked if that means she thinks accused men have been unfairly treated, she said the accused have to provide proof to be believable. "We need to support them".
