Attorney Lisa Bloom, who represents one of the women who has gone public with her sexual harassment claims against O'Reilly, called Mr Trump's comments "disgusting". The revelations were the latest headache for Fox News, coming just months after the cable network's CEO and chairman Roger Ailes stepped down amid similar claims.
"I'm calling for all responsible Americans to fight back and punish Pepsi for using a man who degrades women, who encourages substance abuse, and does all the things that hurt particularly the poor in our society", he said on The O'Reilly Factor, according to Media Matters.
While not many people have publicly supported O'Reilly since the New York Times revealed that he had paid almost $13 million in five separate sexual harassment settlements, Trump asserted that he does not believe the allegations against the Fox News star.

O'Reilly and Fox News paid a total of $13 million in settlements, even though the combative commentator believes the accusations were without merit and said he made the payments to spare his family from bad publicity.
The O'Reilly Factor continued to go up in flames on Wednesday as the number of advertisers abandoning Bill O'Reilly's primetime Fox show has doubled since this morning when PoliticusUSA counted 21 companies that have withdrawn their ads from the time slot.
More than 20 advertisers have pulled their commercials from the program in response, though O'Reilly has yet to address the report on his program. They're taking a look at them because this really is a sexual harassment enterprise. "I don't think Bill did anything wrong".
"I think he's a person I know well - he is a good person", Trump said an interview with the New York Times from the Oval Office on Wednesday.More news: Trump on Paris attack: "What can you say? It just never ends"

"How many women have to come forward?" said Lisa Bloom, an attorney for one of the women who accused O'Reilly of sexual harassment.More news: Wall and Beal catch fire as Wizards take 2-0 series lead
