“Yes,” the businessman replied, with Mr O’Reilly confirming he also got the jab.
After supporters booed Mr Trump’s revelation, he quickly responded to the criticism: “Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t. Don’t- no, there’s a very tiny group over there.”
O’Reilly told NewsNation on Monday that Trump called him after the event, and felt hurt by the reaction.
But the news personality responded with words of encouragement, saying it was good for his image.
“I said ‘This is good for you, this is good that people see another side of you, not a political side, you told the truth, you believe in the vax, your administration did it, and you should take credit for it, because it did save, I don’t know, hundreds of thousands of lives.’”
The ex-Fox News star said Trump will definitely run in 2024, adding: “I’m trying to tell President Trump, run on your record. He’s going to run again, all right.”
