Former President Donald Trump took to the stage during a rally in Selma, North Carolina on Saturday evening where he claimed that he is the most honest human being.

He said that he's "got to be the cleanest sheriff," and that he thinks that he is the "most honest human being, perhaps, that God ever created." As he made the claim, there were ripples of laughter from his supporters.

He made the comment in reference to a story in which a friend supposedly complimented him on how "clean" his administration had been, Business Insider reported. According to Trump, the friend said that the former President has "been investigated years and years, millions and millions of pages of documents, they found nothing." Trump, who became the first American president to be impeached twice, told the crowd that he has been investigated by the "Democrats more the Billy the Kid, Jessie James, and Al Capone combined."

But if one goes by a database, he lied during the time when he was serving as the President. He made 30,573 false or misleading claims during his presidency, and he told 21 lies a day on average, as per the Washington Post's Fact Checker database. Trump also promoted several conspiracy theories when he was in the office.

Following the 2020 Presidential election, Trump insisted that it was stolen from him, but a series of legal challenges have failed to make any headway in the courts. He pushed the ironically named "Big Lie" after he lost the election to Joe Biden. There was no widespread voter fraud, according to top US intelligence and law enforcement agencies.

As for the North Carolina rally, Trump spoke in support of several Grand Old Party (GOP) candidates, including Representative Madison Cawthorn and Senate candidate Ted Budd. Budd, who has received an endorsement from Trump, is seeking to win the Senate seat being vacated by Senator Richard Burr, reported Fox News.

Prior to the rally, Trump said in a statement that he was "getting ready for our big rally tonight in North Carolina," and that there was "heavy support for Ted Budd for Senate, big crowd."

Cawthorn, Representative Dan Bishop, Representative Greg Murphy and Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson were other North Carolina Republicans who spoke at the event.
