"factor" begins now. ♪ >> hi, i am bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. at the special edition of "factor." the year's presidential election has been one of the most momentous and contentious, that rhymes, and american history. it all began back in june, 2015. when then presidential hopeful donald trump appeared with me on "factor" right after his big announcement that he intended to
5:02 pm
seek a nomination for president of the united states. well, since then, we have spoken dozens of times with mr. trump over the past 18 months, discussing what he would do as president and his take on the twists and turns of the presidential race. take a look. >> obamacare. not doing well, i think any measure, any fair-minded person would say, a lot of americans are getting hurt, have to pay more for their premiums, floor deductibles, they are getting their choices of doctors. it doesn't seem that the democratic base, which wanted obamacare so much, cares. they don't seem to care, you don't see an outrage building on the left about obamacare. i'm wondering if you know why that is. >> i think they care. i think people care. i think people are getting wiped out. the numbers they gave, 24, 25% increase, i don't believe that. i think the minimum is going to be 40% and 50%. i think the people are going to care. >> can you tell me simply, you know i am a simple man and have
5:03 pm
trouble grasping complicated situations, you say, you are going to revoke and replace obamacare. i know you want to have insurance companies compete nationwide, no boundaries, that would drive premiums down. what else? are you going to subsidize 30 million people who can't afford assurance? are you going to help them out? >> i like the concept of health care's savings account, i think it is great. you must get rid of the boundaries between the states so we have competition because right now, you'll have competition -- >> what about the insurance companies? one of the reasons the obamacare thing is going through the roof is because there are 30 million americans having trouble doing anything, they can't work come they don't work, whatever, and outcome of the obama administration is giving them free health care. will you continue that? >> the way i view it, trickle groups. the people that can afford it, it will be much lower, much better, much lower price, and really phenomenal, they will be tremendous competition. by the way, there will be plans that you are not talking about right now because the competition will make great
5:04 pm
plans. much lower price of come , much better. you will walk medicaid to the states and people take care of the people that can knock take care of themselves. >> the states get the responsibility to do that. >> absolutely. >> when you see how you're being treated, not only by the national press, but say "saturday night live," alec baldwin is doing you. do you feel that it is a coordinated, there is no doubt that most of the press, i said this from the very beginning, you are a member, i told you, the day you announce 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 are worthy for this job, all of that. >> they don't like what i stand for. >> it stopped, too, it is more you. >> i will compare my iq with anybody, okay, excuse me -- >> it wasn't as personal as
5:05 pm
against you. >> it is personal against you. >> i'm very proud to say, this is the all-time pylon and history, and in terms of -- >> my question, do you believe it is coordinated? >> i do think so. before i ran, used to get great press. my wife said the other day, she said, he used to never get a bad story. i got somebody got very few. now, i have, i can be in the front page of "the new york times" in three different stories in every one of them is a hit job. you understand that. it is a very unfair price. i knew it would be bad, i didn't know it would be this bad. i said, will i get hit, i stand for strong borders, we have to strengthen our country, we wont have a country without borders, people are pouring across. >> i don't know if anybody can bring an end to individual acts of violence, you know, i don't think it is possible, am i wrong? >> one thing you have to do is degrade. one thing that is happening, people are going around and they feel emboldened and they feel
5:06 pm
wonderful and all of these young people in our country and other countries are looking up to isis because isis continues to talk to the united states, they started off in a small area that now, and 28 countries, bill, 28 countries. think of it. this is during hillary clinton's tenure, 28 countries. i want to tell you, that is disgraceful. so, you have to bring them down, you have to bring them down fast. you know, the young people and our country and other countries, they are looking up to these people, they have respect for these people. it is like, let's put it this way. they are getting good public relations because it looks like they are beating the united states, certainly, like the united states can't beat them. >> it certainly is a psychological bar, as well as a physical war. western europe hasn't really helped. another thing that you said that was very controversial, you want to profile, you want to profile arab or muslim men. how would that work? >> we have no choice. look, israel doesn't.
5:07 pm
and israel does it very successfully. >> they do it in the air force. >> they do it. they do it. when i see somebody that they would like to talk to, that they would like to look at, when they would like to maybe open up their satchel and take a look at what is inside, they do it. and they don't like to do it. i don't like to do it. but we have to be, you know, you have a woman who is 87 years old in a wheelchair from sweden, and we have to look at her, if we are going to look at somebody else. it's ridiculous. >> what would you do? >> you want to be so political correct -- >> do you have a vision about how profiling would work? >> it works. we see somebody that we think would be a problem at airports and other places, you talk to them, you see what is going on. >> i think they do that now. you know, look, the alleged bomber here in new york lived over a chicken stand his father owns in new jersey. i mean, come on. >> one thing i will say, i think they have gained great respect for isis and the leaders of isis. you see it all the time. they are becoming, they are
5:08 pm
being radicalized. >> one of the things that you are going to have to do to make america great again as restore respect for the country, both overseas, and here in america. you would agree with that, correct? >> i agree. 100%. >> another bad thing about his country, he said come about stuff about you. you did on a professional football team, what would you do with him? >> he is making a tremendous amount of money, he is leading the american dream, he is trying to make a point. i don't think he is making it the correct way. personally, if it was me, i would not be happy if i were the team owner. i would not tell you what i would do. >> would you fire him? what do you fire him? >> i would be happy to pay him all of this money, i think what he is doing is very bad for the spirit of the country. at the same time, he hasn't the right to protest. >> i said that you are going to have come and my opinion of course, you are going to build a wall. there is no question of that. you are going to come down hard
5:09 pm
on sanctuary cities, criminal aliens, aliens who are here illegally, who commit crimes in the usa, he will deport them immediately. you will have some static and the court system because of due process, certainly, you will authorize the parties to do that. am i correct? accurate so far? >> and we will pass cates law. >> very important. i know you have been behind that from the very beginning. the issue you are apparently modifying is what we talked about and i told you very rudely, i was rude, that there is no way you are going to be able to deport 12 million law-abiding, peaceful aliens come in the system we have prayed too much due process involved. you won't be able to get an immigration force at that kind, dragging them out of their homes. it looks like you're modifying that, am i correct there? >> i never talked about dragging people out of their homes, bill. what, just so you understand, we will have a very strong border, people will come back to the country, they'll come back illegally. they will have a wall, by the
5:10 pm
way, mexico will pay for the wall, 100%. we will have a wall, mexico will pay for the wall, we will have a strong border, i will authorize, get rid of all the drug lords and the gang members in all of the people that are here illegally that shouldn't be committing tremendous crimes. >> there is due process. >> unbelievable crimes. >> you can just do an executive order. >> very little due process. i think there is very little. the local police know who all of them are and we are going to get them. we will stab stabilize the bore will have a strong country, we will have a country again. when it is all completed, the wall, all of this is completed, the people that have i committed a crime, other than coming into the country, which is, depending on your definition, those people, bill, are going to determine, when we look at for the country is, how the border is, what is happening with our country, which will be down the road, we will make a determination at that time. >> that's a modification of your
5:11 pm
original position. but that's fine. >> depending on how you want to view it. >> sure. >> next up, a national security, edward snowden, an award-winning director, oliver stone. >> questioning the liberal medi media. you are spying into what they are trying to say. >> may be i am. if my side is right. >> that is money, because my side is right. >> right back with it.
5:12 pm
5:13 pm
5:14 pm
>> welcome back to our special edition of "factor." big interviews, big issues. controversial hollywood director oliver stone stopped by to talk about his movie about edward snowden and the growing debate over the debate over national security and individual privacy. >> how is this all possible? >> a few words, tach, takeouts, bush. think of it as a google search, instead of searching on the way people make public, we are looking at everything they don't. so, emails, chats, sms, whatever. >> which people? >> no way. >> with us now, the director of the film, the legendary, oliver stone. i didn't get to see the movie but i send my producers out. before we get into it, i want to know about you. do you see the usa is a noble
5:15 pm
country? >> yes. in its intentions, yes. i admire its history, much of it. i love, i grew up here. i was a new york boy. my father was a strong republican, he voted, eisenhower was his man. he was i'm so happy when i went to vietnam as an interview inf. he didn't see the need for me to go. i admired him very much. >> basically, you were brought up in a traditional home, and you say that you admire your country. politically, he would say you are left, right? sympathetic to the castro others in cuba, bernie sanders supporter, you'd be in the left-wing category? >> you could say that. >> okay. when you produce a movie like the "snowden" film, you know that there is a lot of politics just in the film itself. >> gap. >> what did you want to get across in the movie? >> i went away from the politics. i tried to stick to my role as a dramatist, that is what i do. i did a movie about nixon, i did a movie about bush.
5:16 pm
in many cases, less so come about the assassination, the investigation. but nixon, they thought i was too empathetic to him. as with bush, i felt strongly that i was criticized by the left for not making it it more demonic. two rolls come at me as a citizen talking, speaking out to you, and me as a dramatist, telling a story. >> can't you, can you, i should say, as a director, you have a script to work with, obviously, you like the script, in this case, my producer reports, this film is sympathetic to snowden. it is sympathetic. >> empathetic. >> all right. >> you know me, i'm not that well educated with words. it makes him look good, right? in totality? >> it is for you to judge. when you see the movie, you come out, it is not trying to lead you, i'm trying to lay out the story that happened. >> surely, you know, there is emotion attached to snowden. how he is portrayed by you, the
5:17 pm
director, is going to influence how people here like or don't like the movie. i want to get your reaction by the president about snowden. go. >> the way in which these disclosures happened have been -- have been damaging to the united states. and damaging to our intelligence capabilities. and i think that there was a way for us to have this conversation without that damage. >> okay. so, not a conservative man, a liberal man. barack obama. how do you react to that? >> he is also said the opposite. he brought up the conversation and the need for reform has to be discussed. he, in fact, endorsed the freedom act, which was passed in 2015, which, although some people criticized it as being too moderate, it was voted on by 200 republicans, more or less, and the house. 35 republicans in the senate. >> i think most americans want more security. at the same time, they don't
5:18 pm
want individuals like snowden to go out with national security, that could cause people's lives. we have seen that on a number of levels. what i would want you to react to, president obama, you have to take him on his word that he didn't think that snowden's actions were good for the country. how do you react to that? >> we show in the movie is 20088 election at the promises he made for reform and transparency. part of the problem for snowden is that he didn't give to those words. >> you say obama -- go >> he double done on the bush administration's surveillance, the other forms of warfare he created. >> isn't possible that the presidents know more about how to protect america then edward snowden? >> i've heard that ever since i was a young boy. >> you don't believe that? >> i believe governments lie. i think they protect their own interest. >> what is the interest, it seems to me that the interest of electronic surveillance and all of the things that you deal witd snowden dealt with is to protect americans from isis. >> that is what they tell us.
5:19 pm
>> you don't believe that? >> no, no. it is warfare, we initiated it, we did a global initiative in 2007, we used it against iran secretly. and even, it is still classified, we haven't admitted to it. that got out in the world, it went through around, went to other countries like jordan. it went on and on. i talked to the guy who saw the virus, took seven, eight months to find out what it was. >> i can speak to that -- >> we started a new form of warfare, this is very serious, it has gone on and on and on, now, people are very smart. there is no secret to it, they picked up how to hack us. >> do you believe, though, this is being done, you had some questions about the 9/11 attack, i remember. >> i was questioning what the nsa and cia were doing to protect us, as you say. i don't think they did a very good job. >> you don't think it's a conspiracy? >> no. i think they fumbled the ball. >> that put you on the other side of the issue, then. if you want the protection of
5:20 pm
agencies, they have to have some, a blanket of ability to tap and to look. >> selective targets. >> yes. >> we have plenty of them. but why cap everybody? >> don't tap everybody? >> there are because of the use and the nsa to go in. >> i notice you made that point, they have a database they can go on anybody and find out all they want to know. >> you don't think that this country is actively trying to persecute its own people for these devices, do you? >> no, i don't think so. they do have invasive ability beyond all measure, supported by a technological machine that is incredible. >> we saw that with the russian hackers coming right in. >> we don't know about the russian hackers. >> snowden told me they were. no, he didn't, that's a joke. that's a joke. >> coming up, ronald reagan and the actor that portrays him, tom
5:21 pm
matheson, talks about playing the role of our 40th president and "killing reagan." >> reagan was the foundation that the country needed to pull it together. i was really moved by that. >>re back in a moment. straight talk wireless uses the same towers, but only charges half. you get the same 4g lte networks... your phone works in more places... ...for a lot less. it's time to ask yourself... ...why haven't i switched? get a samsung galaxy s7, or bring your own phone. unlimited talk, text and data just forty-five dollars a month. no contract. straighttalk wireless. only at walmart. wonly new alka-seltzer plus st want powerful relief.

country with the goal of turning our country around after the disastrous presidency of jimmy carter. reagan needed to be strong and determined. what i wrote my book, "killing reagan," i portrayed much of the presidents drive. i recently talked with dr. tim matheson, who played ronald reagan, the 40th president, and a nat geo film, " >> why would i risk losing everything if i can get 75% of what i want? >> the last time i checked, i am in control here. >> so, did you know a lot about ronald reagan when he was in office? >> you know, i was politically minded. i must say, he won me over. he is the only republican i ever voted for. >> as president? you are a liberal minded guy? >> yeah. >> most of hollywood obviously is. some of them are pinheads, some of them aren't. we don't mind if you are liberal, as long as you are a thinking liberal. i am independent. i vote for some democrats if i
5:25 pm
think they are the best problem solvers. now, what did reagan do to invite you over? >> reagan was the tonic this country needed at this time, it was such a financial mess, such an emotional mess, just because nixon and all the things, and carter was a lovely man but not a great president. >> you voted for carter. >> i did. i made that mistake. i wouldn't have done it again. i must say, reagan really was the foundation the country needed to pull it together, i was really moved by that. >> you saw how he performed that? that is what we want, open mindedness. when he was shot, do you remember that? >> i was surprised at how moved and upset i was because it was like her your grandfather, you, and it was like, why? >> you didn't know whether he was going to live. the news reports were almost blacked out. the kid who plays him, just like they killed who played oswalt in
5:26 pm
"killing kennedy," he's a young actor, spooky. >> i got to do something now to make you understand in no uncertain terms that i am doing all of this for your sake. >> being around him, that kept us apart. he kept kyle isolated throughout the whole movie. >> is that right? >> no actors talk to him. >> he is running around williamsburg, virginia. he is out. >> when you accepted this role to play the president, all right, what was the hardest thing about it? >> not to be trapped by worrying about her sounding and moving like reagan. i mean, i have to do that in part, but i wanted to explore the emotional and the heart of the man. that was the most important thing to me. >> did you watch a lot of tape of him? >> everything i could find. >> you do sound a bit like him. >> it is a bargaining chip and
5:27 pm
you are just giving it away. >> i don't see it that way. >> reagan was a very close guy. he didn't like to show a lot to anybody. but nancy, you had a to connect with the actors who is playing nancy. cynthia nixon. how was that? >> not hard at all. she is wonderful. she is a wonderful actress. she is an intense listener. if i change the tone or an inflection of a response or a line to her, she is really remarkable. >> i think you are more nervous than i am. >> break a leg. >> i think viewers will be surprised because it isn't -- you are not watching cynthia nixon after a while, you are watching nancy reagan. same thing with the president. >> thank you. i think she did an excellent job. it is a less sympathetic role. she was the bad cop to reagan's good cop, you know. >> right. >> she gave that to him. she took care of him. if she didn't like the way
5:28 pm
somebody was treating him or acting around him. >> gone. >> now, when your hollywood pals, your liberal pals, you guys are all sitting around smoking pot, you know, and doing what you did, i am going to do "killing reagan" written by o'reilly, to the crosses come out? that they collect as? tell me the truth. >> i am wearing garlic now come as a matter of fact. speaker did you get any jazz? >> not at all. if anybody did, i said, you can't act politics. this is not about politics. >> is a good story, right? >> it's a great story. >> i am nervous. >> are you? >> i am crazy if i wasn't. i want to do this. i mean, i can do this. >> you know what, you know him, and have worked with him, tom hanks. and tom, when i told tom i was doing this, he remarked how

than 80,000 customers in louisiana and mississippi. some buildings have been damaged but there was no reports of any injuries or deaths. that's a look at news this hour. i'm kelly wright in washington. back now to "the o'reilly factor" ." ♪ >> justice in america. you may remember the case of michael skakal. convicted of murder, 2013, after serving 11 years in prison, mr. skakal was awarded a new trial. he is part of the kennedy family. his cousin, robert kennedy, jr., has written a new book called "framed, wife michael skakel spent over a decade in prison for a murder he did not convict." the book says that he is completely innocent. i don't want to adjudicate the case of television. we don't have time. it's not fair to the prosecution. i do want to get into the fact that the connecticut supreme court will make a decision on whether there is a new trial for michael skakel any
5:34 pm
time now. you have any heads up on its? >> it could be as long as a year, it could be two weeks. >> you don't know. they will be the tail. if they say, no new trial, then, skakel goes back. >> he goes back to prison. he served 11 and a half years company of a 25 to life sentence. if they overrule that, michael goes back to jail, if they uphold a come of that, the prosecutor has to decide whether to retrial or try the guys thatl colors. >> what i find fascinating about your book is that you and your cousin weren't exactly friends when this whole thing went down. is that correct? >> we were friends in the early '80s. we both got sober at the same time. our friendship deteriorated and we were estranged during his trial. it wasn't until this january that we reconciled. i wrote the book, even though michael was not speaking to me,
5:35 pm
i knew that he was innocent. >> you, from the jump, were on his side and proclaiming his innocence. why was he angry with you? >> you know, he went through, as i show on in the book, he went through a really difficult life. he was put in this very brutal reform school. he was tortured every day for two years. 11 years of prison. before that, he had a very tough time. so, he has been a very acute case of post-traumatic stress syndrome. and when mark fuhrman began attacking him and the path that would later put michael in prison, he thought that the reason he was being attacked was because this association with the kennedy family. as a show on the book, there was no relationship between the kennedys -- go >> it was in a rational opinion that he had. he got mad at you. the reason i gave you that blurb that is on the cover of the book is that i admire your loyalty to
5:36 pm
a man who wasn't real fond of you at the time. so, you said, i'm going to but all the personal stuff aside, i don't think most people would have done that. i'm going to try to seek justice. i believe you are trying to seek justice now. whether you are right or wrong, i don't know. i don't know. that is why i say, you should read the book, you should listen to what the prosecution has to say, we will see with the supreme court has to say. your loyalty to the man is very, very unique, i think. >> well, you know, loyalty, and a lot of people have accused family members, skakel family members, of being loyal to the extent of covering up a murder, which, none of those skakels has the moral bankruptcy to do that kind of thing. i knew someone who i knew was innocent and it's like, if you witness a mugging on the street, you have to make a choice as to whether or not to get involved
5:37 pm
or put your head down and keep walking. i saw a guy put in jail for life for a crime he did not commit. you know, i felt like i had no choice but to do what i did. >> mr. kennedy, thank you very much for coming in. >> thank you so much. >> plenty more still to come, as a special edition of "factor" continues. how did hollywood portray what was behind the great recession of 2008? >> cologne? >> no. >> opportunity. >> money. >> i will talk with the award winning director of "the big short," adam mckay. need go... london's got the best of everything. cornwall's got the best of everything. sport

5:41 pm
it will pay off, if the underlying bond fails -- >> you want to bet against them? >> those bonds only fail if millions of americans don't pay their mortgages. that is never happened in history. >> who tried to keep politics out of the movie, i was waiting for the left left-wing spin. but there was an antigovernment message over all, correct? >> well, you know, we looked at ng.s will be something that goes it obviously affected everyone, as far as the questions of my government, i mean, what we really question where the areas where the government took a lot of money from the banks. sort of neutered itself as a regulatory body. there were some shots of the government, there was a jump shots of the bank, there was a corrupt system. >> there is no doubt about that. you made the point very vividly and explained as well during the film. >> did you hear? is anybody jumping off of
5:42 pm
