In an interview with Tom Llamas of ABC News, First lady Melania Trump said she has more important things to worry about than allegations of her husband’s infidelity.

When asked about Presiden Donald Trump’s rumored affairs, Melania responded, "I'm a mother and a first lady, and I have much more important things to think about and to do. It is not concern and focus of mine."

“I know people like to speculate and media likes to speculate about our marriage,” she continued. “I know what is right and what is wrong and what is true and not true."

Llamas then asked the first lady if she loves her husband.

"Yes, we are fine. It's what media speculate, and it's gossip. It's not always correct stuff," Melania answered.

“I believe that my husband is doing an incredible job for this nation and I want the American people to have success, so whatever he will decide I will support him,” she said. “I’m enjoying it. I really love to live in Washington and in the White House. Yes, I’m enjoying it.”

Melania Trump also shared her thoughts on the “#MeToo” movement, saying that women who make sexual misconduct accusations “need to have really hard evidence.”

"If you accuse (someone) of something, show the evidence," she said. "I support the women and they need to be heard. We need to support them and, you know, also men, not just women."

"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 it's, it's not correct, it's not right," she continued.

In an interview in 2016, Melania Trump told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that “every assault should be taken care of in a court of law. And to accuse, no matter who it is, a man or a woman, without evidence is damaging and unfair."

Melania Trump also shared her opinion on bullying in today’s world. Bullying has led the first lady to create her anti-bullying “Be Best” initiative.

“I could say I’m the most bullied person on the world,” said Melania to ABC News’ Tom Llamas in the interview recorded in Africa.

“You’re really the most bullied person in the world?” Llamas replied.

“One of them, if you really see what people saying about me,” she answered.

Melania’s “Be Best” anti-bullying campaign is supposed to teach kids how to treat each other with respect.

"We need to educate the children of social-emotional behavior, so when they grow up, they know how to deal with those issues," she said. "That's very important."
