President Trump defends Bill O'Reilly: 'He is a good person'

The decisions signal the potential of financial damage for "The O'Reilly Factor", Paul Rittenberg, the executive vice president of advertising sales at Fox News, addressed the exodus in a statement on Tuesday.

"I think he's a person I know well - he is a good person", Trump said during an interview with The New York Times. The crucial point: He doesn't think the 67-year-old anchor did anything wrong and says O'Reilly shouldn't have settled. Trump similarly denied all the allegations, saying "the events never happened", and once calling his accusers "horrible liars".

When Fox CEO Roger Ailes was under scrutiny and later forced to resign, Trump continued to maintain his innocence and stand by the aggressor, even as it threatened his presidential ambitions.

He has denied subjecting women to unwanted sexual advances.

Last week, Trump declared April 2017 National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, pledging that his administration "will do everything in its power to protect women, children, and men from sexual violence".

According to a report by CNN among the companies refusing to advertise on O'Reilly's show are Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai, BMW of North America, Constant Contact, Ainsworth Pet Nutrition, UNTUCKit, Allstate, T. Rowe Price, GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi.

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

"Yes, we had advertising running on "The O'Reilly Factor" (we run on most major cable news shows) and it has been reassigned in the midst of this controversy", Donna Boland, Mercedes-Benz corporate communications manager, said in a statement.

Lisa Bloom, the lawyer for one of O'Reilly's accusers, has called for an independent investigation of Fox News.

For over a decade, "The O'Reilly Factor" has been the most-watched news show.

The advertisers pulled out after the New York Times revealed over the weekend that five women were paid settlements totaling $13 million to keep quiet about supposed sexual harassment by O'Reilly.

Human Rights Commission spokesman Seth Hoy said he could not comment.

Fox News is a unit of 21st Century Fox.
