    “I think he’s a person I know well — he is a good person,” Trump said of O’Reilly in an interview with The New York Times.

    The Times reported over the weekend that Fox and O’Reilly paid $13 million to five women who accused him of sexual harassment. O’Reilly, in a statement posted on his website on Saturday, said he had been unfairly targeted because of his prominence.

    “I think he shouldn’t have settled; personally I think he shouldn’t have settled,” Trump told the Times on Wednesday. “Because you should have taken it all the way. I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.”

    Fox News is a unit of 21st Century Fox.

    Several companies have pulled ads from O’Reilly’s Fox News show “The O’Reilly Factor.”

    1. What a surprise. The Groper-in-Chief is defending the reputation of another serial sexual harasser. His only complaint was that O’Reilly settled rather than litigating every case as Trump has done. You should simply grope and then threaten your victims and move on to the next woman.
