Date October 11, 2018

Recently, President Trump voiced his concern about the life of young men in America, saying that it’s a “scary time” for them to live in. According to Mr. Trump, they can be accused of sexual assault even when they are completely innocent.

Standing on the South Lawn of the White House on Tuesday, the President proclaimed:

You can be somebody that was perfect your entire life and somebody can accuse you of something. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a woman. But somebody can accuse you of something.

What message does he have for young women? Trump said without a trace of doubt in his voice that it’s a “great time for women.” And his wife, Melania, is backing up his claims.

Show the evidence

During a sit-down interview with ABC News in Kenya, the U.S. First Lady said that victims of sexual assault need to show some proof when they are making accusations. She stated:

You need to have really hard evidence. If you accuse (someone) of something, show the evidence.

Trump added that, although she supports women, men need support, as well.

I support women and they need to be heard. We need to support them and, you know, also men, not just women.

The First Lady followed up by saying that even though she stands with women, those who say that they are victims need to be ready to prove their claims.

I do stand with women, but we need to show the evidence. You cannot just say to somebody, 'I was sexually assaulted' or 'You did that to me' because sometimes, the media goes too far, and the way they portray some stories is not correct, it's not right.
