During Monday night’s interview with Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, Donald Trump seemed to imply that he had been fed a question that Bill O’Reilly planned to asked.
“The Boston Globe writes that you pay men in your campaign a third more in salary than you pay women…” O’Reilly noted. “Is that true, do you pay men a third more than women in your campaign?”
“The answer is no,” Trump said. “And I just had it checked because I heard this was going to be a question.”
“I don’t know, I have a good source and somebody said this could be a question. I just checked it, Bill, and the answer is no,” he said.
UPDATE (9:37 AM ET): In a statement to Mediaite, Fox News denied that Trump had any foreknowledge of the questions he would be asked. “We never, ever tell the guests what questions will be asked. Bill O’Reilly is the only person who knows what exactly he’ll ask. We treated this interview like we treat all other guests on the program,” O’Reilly’s Senior Executive Producer David Tabacoff said.
