Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly took Donald Trump to task Monday night for his Twitter account.
Recently, the GOP presidential candidate retweeted — Trump was not the original author — an alleged 2015 crime statistic, which is still up on his account.

O’Reilly spoke with the former Apprentice host for more than seven minutes on The O’Reilly Factor about comments Trump recently made about Syrian refugees, but the conversation took a more stern tone on O’Reilly’s part when he told Trump he needs to be more diligent with his Twitter account, on which he has gained nearly 5 million followers.
“I told you: You shouldn’t tweet ever,” said O’Reilly. “Don’t tweet. Give it up for Lent.”
Trump defended the statistics tweet by saying he retweeted something he heard on “radio shows.” O’Reilly told him that was not a good enough answer.
Trump combated O’Reilly’s request by saying he is a fan of Twitter and that it is an important tool for him.
Explained Trump, “I like it because I can get also my point of view out there, and my point of view is very important to a lot of people that are looking at me.”
