Bill O’Reilly interrupted Donald Trump’s claims about how he would create jobs for African-Americans on Monday night to make a louder point: That many of them are “ill-educated and have tattoos on their foreheads.”

Grilling the Republican front-runner on Fox News’ the O’Reilly Factor, the conservative talk show host asked Trump how he would win over minorities like African Americans.

“I’m telling you, it’s an economic message,” Trump said. “If you look at President Obama, he’s been a president for almost 8 years, it will be 8 years, you have with black youth, with African American youth, you have a 59 percent unemployment.”

“But how are you going to get jobs for them?” O’Reilly interjected. “Many of them are ill-educated and have tattoos on their foreheads, and I hate to be generalized about it, but it’s true. If you look at all the educational statistics, how are you going to get jobs for people who aren’t qualified for jobs?”

“We’re going to bring jobs back,” Trump responded. “We’re going to have Apple computers made in this country, not just…”

O’Reilly pushed back: “But you have to have skills to make Apple computers.”
