On tonight's "O'Reilly Factor," Bill O'Reilly asked Donald Trump if he would "come back from the confrontational style and be more statesmanlike" now that it appears likely he will get the Republican nomination.

Trump responded that he thinks it'd be wise to do that, but said that he wants to make sure he wins the nomination first.

"I do want to finish this off, I'm dealing with two smart, tough guys and I want to make sure I end up winning. I'd like to get to the finish line ... But it certainly would be (wise) and I think that's what you're going to see."

O'Reilly then asked Trump if he had a plan for how to deal with continued provocations at his rallies from radical leftist groups like MoveOn.

"You get in trouble when you react," O'Reilly said. "So the pro-active forces are coming at you, and then you react ... Is restraint required on your part?"

Trump said that, considering the large numbers of people turning up at his rallies, there have been relatively few problems.

"But the answer is yes, I would absolutely be able to stand above it."
