Of course Trump defended O'Reilly

According to the report, O'Reilly and Fox News's parent company, 21st Century Fox, has paid out roughly $13 million to five different women in exchange to not pursue litigation or speak about the allegations.

Following the Times story, O'Reilly released a statement in which he described himself as a victim, and claimed his reason for paying out the settlements was to protect his children.

President Donald Trump said, "I don't think Bill did anything wrong".

Trump said that he didn't think O'Reilly should have settled with the women involved. "And it's catching up with them and you have over 30 advertisers who have taken away their advertising". "The advertisers are speaking and women are speaking and I think it's going to work out - but the president shouldn't have done that".

Johnson had been due to hold talks with Sergey Lavrov, his counterpart as Russian foreign minister, after flying out on Sunday. Donald Trump spoke by telephone with Saudi Arabia's King Salman about the strikes, the Saudi Press Agency said on Saturday.

The report about O'Reilly comes less than a year after Fox News' former chairman Roger Ailes was ousted following a sexual harassment lawsuit. O'Reilly was outraged by the decision, urging his viewers to boycott the soda company if they didn't pull the ads.

Trump defended his longtime friend, calling O'Reilly a "good person", and that he fought the claims.

She continued, "They need to go to jail".

During the USA election campaign, Trump had defended then Fox News chief Roger Ailes, who also was accused of sexual harassment. 21 Century Fox is now in the hot seat since it has pledged zero tolerance for inappropriate work behavior.

Real Brexit talks will only start after June vote: EU Commission
The governing Conservative Party now has a narrow majority of 17 seats in the House of Commons. The prime minister did give some hints about how long she expected a Brexit deal to take.

"I don't really want him speaking for the United States", she said. "It shouldn't be in America that you can sexually harass women and then buy your way out of it because you're rich", she said.

Of course, by Trump's standards, "The O'Reilly Factor" host is a tremendous guy, maybe even the most tremendous person he knows.

While O'Reilly may be so invaluable the network won't let him go, companies have launched a successful boycott of a host in the not-so-distant past.

"I think they are unfounded just based on what I've read", Trump said of the accusations against Ailes.

Reports suggest a statement was written to the studio which said the European Union "did great harm" to France and its citizens. Opponents of Le Pen and her anti-immigration National Front party also skirmished with police outside a Paris rally this week.

O'Reilly's comments resulted in a backlash and he ultimately apologized, saying that his comment on Waters' hair was "dumb".
