Former President Donald Trump is struggling to sell tickets to his upcoming interview tour with conservative pundit Bill O’Reilly, according to a Politico report that prompted the former Fox News host to threaten a lawsuit threat.

Despite claims that there has been little or no marketing so far, both men have aggressively promoted the events. Trump and O’Reilly both plugged the event as a “great” Father’s Day gift last month and O’Reilly has urged his podcast subscribers to become paying members in order to get early access to the events.
