Melania Trump has become a global icon since moving into the White House. She has traveled the world and worked tirelessly to empower America's youth.

While she has generally stayed quite on certain topics involving her husband, Melania is finally speaking out about the #MeToo movement and sexual assault victims. Her words come just days after Judge Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court following allegations from Dr. Ford.

Now, Melania is taking a stand. While she says that she supports victims, she also makes it very clear that there has to be substantial evidence with allegations. It is a point that many Republicans have stressed during the past few weeks.

"I support the women and they need to be heard. We need to support them, and also men, not just women," explains Melania in a recent interview with ABC News. "We need to have hard evidence that, you know, that if you are accused of something, show the evidence."

The interview took place from Kenya during Melania's current Africa trip. It will air this coming Friday. Twitter erupted with controversy after the First Lady chimed in.

Many feel her words contradict the #MeToo movement and hurt survivors of sexual abuse. Still, thousands of comments flooded in praising Melania for putting an end to abuse "witch hunts" without evidence.
