Bill O'Reilly Challenges Trump on Election Rigging

Bill O'Reilly Challenges Trump on Election Rigging

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly on Thursday asked GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump to reassure his supporters that their votes are not being stolen in early voting states where voting machine problems have been reported.

"I can't reassure," Trump said in the "O'Reilly Factor" interview. "I think things are going on that aren't good."

Trump pointed to Texas, where there have been several reports of people marking a ballot straight ticket Republican, then having their presidential vote switched to Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Those reports also included Democrats having their votes switched to Trump, but the majority appeared to be voter error, election officials said, and they were corrected before the vote was officially recorded.

O'Reilly asked Trump if he had any hard evidence on Texas, and he said no, but that people have been calling in – including to Fox News – and reporting it.

O'Reilly in his opening monologue on Wednesday said that while there have been isolated incidents of voter fraud, there is no way for the election to be stolen. He warned that undermining an election is not patriotic.

"You don't believe that 120 million American votes that the thing is going to be dishonest, do you believe that?" O'Reilly asked Trump on Thursday.

Trump wasn't so sure.

"Well, I looked at Pew Pesearch, highly respected," he said. "And there are 1.8 million people who are dead who are registered to vote. And some of those people vote. So I wonder how that happens. …

"There are 2.8 million people registered in two states. That's not so good that means you vote in two states. There are things that are going on, Bill."
