Five women have received a total of $13 million from settlements with Fox news host Bill O’Reilly over harassment claims brought against him. O’Reilly has said that the accusations are without merit.

President Donald Trump spoke in O’Reilly’s defense, saying he was a ‘good person.’ This powerful support comes as more than 30 companies have withdrawn as sponsors from ‘The O’Reilly Factor.’ These companies include BMW, Mercedes-Benz, UNTUCKit, and Constant Contact.

Trump defended O’Reilly in his interview with the New York Times saying, “(H)e is a good person… I think he shouldn’t have settled… I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.”
