Bill O'Reilly's Trump Interview Makes Twitter User Shake Their Heads

Bill O'Reilly's statements on Monday caused Twitter to explode. Donald Trump was a guest on Monday night's O'Reilly Factor where O'Reilly asked Trump questions that caused many to label him as a racist.

To start, O'Reilly pointed out to Trump that he is not polling well with minority voters and questioned his strategy with that segment. Trump replied that hew as doing "fantastic with African-Americans and with Hispanics" before discussing that the real issue was jobs being outsourced to countries like China and Mexico.

O'Reilly then asked how he could promise jobs to black voters by saying "How are you going to get jobs for them? Many of them are ill-educated and have tattoos on their foreheads, and I hate to be generalized about it but it's true, if you look at all the educational statistics, how are you going to give jobs to people who aren't qualified for jobs?" Trump then responded, "We're going to have Apple computers made in this country." O'Reilly said, "But you have to have skills to make Apple computers."

Trump stated, "We will get the skills and we will develop the skills. We have an incredible population and they don't have hte jobs. Our good jobs are going to China, they're going to Mexico--" O'Reilly then stated, "We know that, but it's more challenging for a poor child in Harlem without parental guidance in a school that's falling apart than it is for some white kid out in Garden City. And you say you can bring jobs back, but if the kid isn't qualified to do the job and can't do the work you gotta get into the infrastructure of the African-American community. Do you have a plan to do that?"

Trump then talked about student-loan debt. After the interview, one Twitter user wrote "I just need Bill O'Reilly to shut the hell up. His existence irks my soul." Another Twitter user wrote, "I've always associated forehead tattoos and a lack of education with white rural meth-heads personally. But do you, Bill O'Reilly." Although, Donald Trump came to O'Reilly's defense by tweeting, "Why does the liberal media think Bill O'Reilly is a complete and total vulgarian? I don't think so!"
