O'REILLY: All right.
TRUMP: I wouldn't want to be in a foxhole with a lot of these people, that I can tell you --
O'REILLY: But McCain is a brave man. He is a brave man.
TRUMP: -- including Ryan. By the way, including Ryan. Especially Ryan.
O'REILLY: I got that. Okay. Now, when we come back -- I'm going to hold you over -- I want to talk about the debate, and I want you to be thinking about what in the debate got you angry, and what you felt was most important for the American public. All right? So when we come back, we'll talk to Mr. Trump, we really appreciate his time. We know how busy he is. And later, the Talking Points Memo on how religious Americans are seeing the presidential race right now. That's up ahead.
O'REILLY: Continuing now with Donald Trump who is in Dallas this evening. Okay. On the debate, think back, what's the most important thing you said in that debate?
TRUMP: Well, I think a lot of things, but I would say the most important thing I showed in the debate and as you saw, virtually everybody, other than, you know, some crooked polls said that we won the debate easily, was that Hillary Clinton, after being there for 30 years has done practically nothing except talk. She won't do anything.
O'REILLY: All right. So, that was the most important --
TRUMP: She won't do anything. To me, that's the biggest thing.
TRUMP: Because she talks about -- she talks about health care, child care, she talks about everything, but she never does anything. You look at the bills she passed, a few naming projects. She named a couple buildings or highway or something. She did practically nothing. Hillary Clinton has been there and she criticizes and she says what she's going to do but she never does anything.
O'REILLY: But she got some stuff, to be fair, after 9/11, she did a fairly good job representing New York and getting things in here that the families needed and the victims needed but I want to go to --
TRUMP: Well, she's not getting credit from my check, I will tell you that.
TRUMP: People think she was a lousy senator. She came in on the basis that she was going to fix Upstate, New York and create 200,000 jobs and guess what happened, everybody left.
O'REILLY: Okay. Now, Hillary Clinton just putting aside the compliments that she gave your children and by extension you. Did she say anything in that debate, and you know, try to be fair here, that impressed you anything that she have any point of view that was worthy?
TRUMP: Well, you know, I'm sure she said a couple of things, Bill, you know, you're asking me about the debate. I don't think I was extremely impressed with her performance. One thing I will say, you know, right after the debate they left and they said oh, Donald was in her space. I never walked near her. I was at my lectern and all of a sudden she walks right over to me, she stands right in front of me and the next day, I read that I was in her space. I watched Lazio lose the debate because he went over towards, stood over her. And that was years ago, I guess when they were running for Senate. Rick Lazio, nice guy. But he stood over and he took a lot of heat for that, so I very, you know --
O'REILLY: I thought it was a bogus issue. I said it last night.
TRUMP: No, no, wait a minute, Bill, she came into my territory. No, no, she came into my territory. I was standing at my lectern --
TRUMP: And all of a sudden from nowhere, she walks right in front of me. So, I never walked near her. She stands right in front of me. The next day, it was I was in her space. I was standing at my chair, my lectern. So, this is typical Hillary Clinton. She's a phony person.
O'REILLY: All right. But it was the press that did it and it was ridiculous. The whole thing was ridiculous.
TRUMP: No, it was the Hillary Clinton camp that spun the press, and the press is an extension of Hillary Clinton. I mean, it's part of the rigged system. The press is a total extension of look, if Hillary Clinton didn't have the press, she'd be right -- she wouldn't be running. She would have lost immediately. But if she didn't have the press on her side, and it's a total fix job. If she didn't have it, she'd be at 10 percent right now. Nobody wants her.
O'REILLY: When you see how you're being treated, not only by the national press, but say "Saturday Night Live." You've got Alec Baldwin now doing you, Kate McKinnon doing Mrs. Clinton, do you feel that it's coordinated? There's no doubt that most of the press, and I said this from the very beginning, you remember I told you that the day you announced that you were going to get hammered personally, not just because of your policies, but because they don't like you, they don't think you're worthy for this job. You know, all of that.
TRUMP: No, they don't like what I stand for. They don't like what I stand for.
O'REILLY: Yes. I understand.
TRUMP: They don't like, worthy, I mean, look, I'll compare my I.Q. with anybody, okay? So, they don't like --
O'REILLY: But compare you to Romney. They didn't like Romney, but it wasn't as personal as it is against you. It's personal against you.
TRUMP: Well, I'm very proud to say, they say -- this is the all-time pile on in history in terms of -- you know, before I ran --
O'REILLY: Coordinated, do you believe it's coordinated?
TRUMP: Hey, Bill, yes, I do think so. Before I ran, I used to get great press, my wife said the other day, she said you used to never got a bad story. Well, I got some, but I got very few. Now I have like, I can have -- I can be on the front page of the "New York Times" in three different stories, and every one of them is a hit job. And you understand that. Now, it's a very unfair press, but I knew it would be bad. I didn't know it would be this bad. I used to talk. I said, boy, am I going to get hit? Because I stand for strong borders. We have to strengthen up our country. We're not going to have a country if we don't have borders. And people are pouring across. By the way, ICE and the border patrol guards, border patrol agents just endorsed me, 16,500 agents.
O'REILLY: Right. But that was a while back. But you missed an opportunity.
TRUMP: No, ICE -- no, no. ICE was last week, Bill, just so you understand.
O'REILLY: You missed an opportunity, because in the Wikileaks exposition, apparently, Hillary Clinton said to a bunch of Brazilian bankers that she wants open borders. I thought you were going to hammer that all day long in the debate. You didn't.
TRUMP: The problem is, Bill, I would hammer it, but the press doesn't pick it up. The press is hardly even talking about WikiLeaks. You now that. WikiLeaks is amazing. The stuff that's coming out, it shows she's a real liar. She said, well, you have to say to the public and you have to say to your donors different things. Okay? The press doesn't even pick this stuff up. You look at, where are you seeing it?
O'REILLY: It got overshadowed by the "Access Hollywood" stuff. I mean --
TRUMP: No, it did not. It wasn't overshadowed.
O'REILLY: Well, let me just tell you. On Friday night --
TRUMP: They just --
O'REILLY: Just let me tell you. On Friday night I'm sitting here doing a live show. I got WikiLeaks all day long on my show. And then all of a sudden an hour before airtime, the "Access Hollywood" thing explodes, so everybody is running around like this, you know, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum and the story got buried. And so, that's what happened on that one.
TRUMP: Bill, they should be speaking about what's going on in WikiLeaks. Just today, just before I put this on and shoot before your cameras, they have incredible stuff coming out even today. In fact, as soon as I'm finished, I am going to read it. But it was incredible stuff.
O'REILLY: Yes, it was about the --
TRUMP: But nobody else is picking it up.
O'REILLY: Well, we record it.
TRUMP: CNN which is totally crooked. You know, the Clinton News network. CNN, first of all, their ratings are terrible. I don't know if you've seen them.
O'REILLY: They're doing better. Because they're on Hillary's side and all that. But you're right. I am not going to dispute the fact that --
TRUMP: They're not doing better. They're doing badly in the ratings.
O'REILLY: Eighty percent of the press doesn't want you to win. That's a lot. Eighty percent. But, you always have a forum here. And I think FOX News has given you a fair shake. Would you say that's accurate?
TRUMP: I would say, yes, I would say FOX has been pretty good. Your guys in the morning have been fantastic. You've been fair. I wouldn't say you're the greatest, but you've been fair. (LAUGHTER)I think that FOX has been, no, you have some great people. Sean Hannity is a great, great person. You have some great people --
O'REILLY: We've been fair.
TRUMP: There are people that frankly don't treat me fairly, but you've been fine.
O'REILLY: All right.
Well, look, I appreciate you coming on, because look, you gain currency coming in here. Because I'm not --
TRUMP: I do?
O'REILLY: I'm not rooting for anybody. I'm asking you the hardest questions I can ask you, and you sit there and answer them. And guess who doesn't answer them.
TRUMP: I do.
O'REILLY: Guess who doesn't answer them.
TRUMP: Let me guess, is it crooked Hillary?
O'REILLY: I would never be disrespectful and call her that.
TRUMP: That's what she is.
O'REILLY: She should, she should.
O'REILLY: All right. We appreciate your time, Donald. Thank you very much. Have a good rally this evening.
TRUMP: Thank you very much. Thank you.
O'REILLY: Directly ahead, we'll have reaction to that interview. And later your thoughts on the presidential election. We received nearly eight thousand questions. You guys in the spotlight up ahead.
