O’Reilly: ‘Powerful Forces’ Like the Media Have ‘Committed to Destroying’ Trump

Bill O’Reilly kicked off his final pre-inauguration show tonight with some advice for President-elect Donald Trump, as well as some warnings.

“He is in a unique position,” O’Reilly said. “There are powerful forces in America committed to destroying him. And the national media’s a big part of that.”

He said that Trump should communicate directly to the American people with a message of unity to combat the “hatred.”

O’Reilly also admitted that while he used to think all the tweeting hurt Trump, now he thinks it’s a “necessity” for Trump to be able to quickly respond to attacks in the press.
