  • Melania Trump to tell all in 'no-questions-off-limits' interview

"If you accuse (someone) of something, show the evidence", Trump said in a sit-down interview with ABC News that took place in Kenya last week during her first major solo trip to Africa.

Melania Trump says her help is being shunned by aid organizations because they don't want to be associated with her husband's administration.

First Lady Melania Trump spoke out about the #MeToo movement, saying she supports women but that accusers "need to show the evidence". "We need to support them". The first portion of the interview was aired on Good Morning America on Wednesday morning.

Korean president to meet Pope with message from N. Korea
South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha has given a hint of what a grand bargain between the two countries could look like. The pair discussed ending the reclusive state's nuclear weapons program and hostilities between Washington and Pyongyang.

Her remarks come just days after Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed and sworn in after a weeks-long fight that intensified when a letter leaked from a woman claiming Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her at a drunken high school party. "You can not just say to somebody, 'I was sexually assaulted, ' or, 'You did that to me, ' because sometimes the media goes too far".

"I feel they are choosing politics over helping others", she said.

Leftists and feminists were hoping they could use President Trump's alleged philandering to bait First Lady Melania Trump into being an outspoken advocate of #MeToo following the Kavanaugh witch hunt, but their hopes have been dashed.

President Trump has been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct and assault in the past.
