O'Reilly Asks Trump to Name His 'Main Challenger' for GOP Nomination — He Replies With Two Names

"Who do you think right now, at this point in history, is your main challenger among the Republican candidates?"

Donald Trump named Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) when asked Wednesday by Fox News host Bill O'Reilly to identify the person he considered his "main challenger" for the Republican presidential nomination.

"Who do you think right now, at this point in history, is your main challenger among the Republican candidates?" O'Reilly asked.

Trump initially dodged the question, saying he thought "they are all challengers." Then he replied with two names.

"People are thinking in terms of Cruz and Rubio. They say on the other side, the side that they've been elected to office," Trump said. "But, other things they don't have. They don't have my experience certainly."

"I've created tens of thousands of jobs. I've built a company that's worth many, many, many billions of dollars. It's a great company with little debt. Tremendous cash flows. I deal with people from all over the world. Countries from all over the world," the real estate tycoon added. "Who has my experience? I mean nobody has ever done what I've done."

During the segment, O'Reilly also confronted Trump over his citation of President Dwight Eisenhower's deportation strategy at Tuesday night's debate.

"Believe me when I tell you, Mr. Trump, that was brutal what they did to those people to kick them back," O'Reilly said. "The stuff they did was really brutal. It could never happen today."

Trump insisted he would find a "very humane way" to deport the millions of individuals who are inside the U.S. illegally.
