Trump and Hillary shaking handsIt has been a rough first term for President Trump but Bill O'Reilly, the former Fox News host, insists the President can beat Joe Biden on Election Day if he does well in the upcoming debates.  

"What will help Donald Trump is if he come into these debates prepared," O'Reilly told The Todd Starnes Show. "He can't debate the way he did with Hillary Clinton. He's got to come in very prepared to do damage to Joe Biden's record and to Biden himself."

Citing election figures from 2016, O’Reilly advised that women chose Clinton over Trump 54 percent to 42 percent, and it could be the “end of him” if that margin grows even wider on Election Day.

“So he's got to persuade women that he can help them,” O’Reilly explained, “and that Biden will hurt them.”

The first presidential debate is set for Sept. 29 at Case Western Reserve University, which has agreed to host after Notre Dame dropped out yesterday.

"If [Trump] is too mean, he’s going to lose that point,” O’Reilly further advised. “So he's got to be very deliberate, very methodical, and he's got to appeal to women, saying, You may not like my style. I'm brash. I'm bombastic. But if you vote for him, Joe Biden, you and your kids and everybody else are going to be in for years and years of hardship."

Joe Biden & Donald TrumpO'Reilly himself knows about being bombastic: The former "O'Reilly Factor" host was famous for blasting guests with his "no spin zone" deliveries, especially if they began spouting talking points to the frustrated host. 

Regarding the current presidential election, O'Reilly told Starnes it marks his 11th presidential campaign to follow, and he insisted he keeps an "open mind" about both political parties and the issues of the day. With that said, however, he told Starnes he cannot support the Democratic Party with his vote in November. 

"I mean, every bad thing you can think of economically will happen," he predicted. "And it's not a matter of if, but when, and I can't support that."

O'Reilly had the highest-rated show on Fox before he was forced to step down in 2017 amid sexual harassment claims.
