Fox News Channel fixture Bill O’Reilly opened up about the impending Donald Trump presidency in an interview with Deadline.com in which the cable news host also ripped the media’s coverage of the 2016 election.
Asked how he would rate President-elect Trump so far, O’Reilly said: “Trump so far is sending a signal that he’s going to run the government like his business and maybe that’s going to work. I don’t know, so I’m not going to second-guess it. It’s a new approach but there’s no doubt that he wants to run this as one continuing negotiation.”
O’Reilly added: “So I figure you give the man two years to see if that approach works, the business rather than the political approach. You’ll see at the end of two years if new jobs are being created, money flow comes back from overseas, all of that, the immigration chaos subsides. You got to give him two years, but I think I know what he’s trying to do and you know we’ll watch it.”
O’Reilly had harsh words for the media, saying: “I thought the coverage of the election was disgraceful, and it was dishonest. It was ideologically driven and I think that the news agencies that did that will never return to a level of credibility ever.”
