Trump Rips Liberal Media: They Always Pull the 'Racist Card' on Conservatives
On "The O'Reilly Factor" tonight, we saw more portions of Bill O'Reilly's interview with President Donald Trump that didn't air during FOX's Super Bowl pregame show.
O'Reilly asked Trump about his contentious relationship with the press and why he thinks the media goes after him.
Trump said he thinks the media covers him dishonestly and unfairly because they have a "progressive" agenda.
"It's just the other side of the coin," Trump said. "I don't think they like anybody on our side."
O’Reilly noted that some have accused Trump of racism and Islamophobia, asking, “Does it hurt your feelings that they are making you into a hater?”
Trump it doesn't because "they always do it."
"The first thing they do with Republicans or conservatives is the racist card. They pull out the racist card," Trump said. "Not just me. They do it with everybody."
O'Reilly asked if there's any legitimacy to the criticism Trump says things "he can't back up factually."
"If you say, for example, that there are three million illegal aliens who voted, and then you don't have the data to back it up, some people are going to say that's irresponsible for a president to say that," O'Reilly said. "Is there any validity to that?"
Trump said that many people have agreed with his claims of widespread voter fraud.
"But you got to have data to back that up," O'Reilly insisted. "The data has to show that three million illegals voted."
Trump said it's well-documented that deceased people and illegal immigrants voted, and many people were registered to vote in two states.
He said he's going to set up a commission - which will be headed by Vice President Mike Pence - to look at the issue "very, very carefully."
