While most of Melania Trump's answers have not been released, ABC News did publish a promotional clip, featuring Tom Llamas, a weekend anchor and chief national affairs correspondent for "World News Tonight", asking the first lady a series of tough questions.

First lady Melania Trump says in a new interview with ABC News that someone who makes a sexual misconduct accusation needs "to have really hard evidence" before doing so.

Speaking to ABC on her recent trip to Africa, Trump said, "I do stand with women". "Because sometimes the media goes so far and they way they portray some stories, it's not correct".

The one-on-one special, "Being Melania - The First Lady", airs Friday at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.

"It's sad to see that organizations and foundations I want to partner with choose not to because of the administration".

"I feel like they're choosing politics over helping others", she told Llamas.

Llamas asked, "What is your take about the #MeToo movement ... do you believe in [the women], do you support the #MeToo movement?" "They know who they are".

The first lady was also asked about Brett Kavanaugh, whose contentious Supreme Court Nomination was enraptured the nation. "And, you know, also men, not just women", Mrs Trump said.

"It's a very scary time for young men in America, when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of. It's not right", she said.

"We need to help all the victims, no matter what kind of abuse they had", she added. He has called them all liars.
