Donald Trump discussed the upcoming presidential debates in an interview that aired on Monday’s broadcast of “The O’Reilly Factor.”
Host Bill O’Reilly directly asked the Republican nominee if he plans on attacking Clinton’s marriage if she chooses to criticize Trump’s own past relationships.
“I don’t think I’m looking to do that, Bill,” Trump flatly answered. “I don’t know what I’m going to do that exactly. It depends on what level she hits you with, if she’s fair, if it’s unfair, but certainly I’m not looking to do that.”
Trump then told O’Reilly that “the New York Times wrote a story about [him] and women and it turned out that it was a false story.”
“The New York Times wrote a story about women and the women called the office and said, ‘We never said that about Donald Trump. We really like him. He’s really good,'” he continued. “They quoted women and they never even said it. It was on the front page, centerfold, massive big color picture. It was disgraceful. They are so dishonest – I’ll tell you what. There is nobody that respects women more than Donald Trump.”
O’Reilly continued to press Trump on whether or not he will launch personal attacks against Clinton, the mogul admitted that, at this point in time, he has “absolutely no idea.”
“I think this. If she treats me with respect, I will treat her with respect. It really depends.”
“People ask me that question, ‘oh you’re going to go out there and do this and that.’ I really don’t know that. You’re going to have to feel it out when you’re out there. She’s got to treat me with respect. I’m going to treat her with respect. I’d like to start off by saying that because that would be my intention.”
