Trump commented in reference to a story in which a friend supposedly complimented him on how "clean" his administration had been, according to Newsweek.

"You know, you've been investigated years and years, millions and millions of pages of documents, they found nothing," the friend said, according to Trump, per Newsweek.

"I've been investigated by the Democrats more the Billy the Kid, Jessie James, and Al Capone combined," Trump told the crowd, Newsweek reported.

Trump became the first president to be impeached twice.

According to The Washington Post's Fact Checker database, he made 30,573 false or misleading claims during his presidency.

He told 21 lies a day on average, per The Post.

Trump spoke in North Carolina in support of several GOP candidates, including Rep. Madison Cawthorn and Senate candidate Ted Budd.
