BILL O'REILLY (HOST): If Trump is actually the Republican nominee, we can expect a media assault on him that will be unprecedented in America. Every single day the press will hammer Trump, exposing every part of his life. Trump is getting ready. 

[Clip begins]

DONALD TRUMP: So that when the New York Times writes a hit piece, which is a total disgrace, or when the Washington Post, which is there for other reasons, writes a hit piece, we can sue them and win money instead of having no chance of winning because they are totally protected.

[Clip ends]

O'REILLY: Now, Mr. Trump talking about what he would do as president -- attempt to change the libel laws -- but he can't do that now. And believe me, the press is just waiting. A preview is this David Duke stuff, a complete nonstory. I have spoken with Trump hundreds of times and I have never heard him run down anyone because of race. He doesn't care about that.
