President Donald Trump is known for hyperbole, whether he's describing himself as "the least racist person in the world" or "a perfect physical specimen."
In one of his final rallies before Election Day, Trump made a similarly wild assertion: He's the most innocent man in all of American history.
The President said:
"The Mueller investigation scam and they come up with 'no collusion,' which makes me perhaps the most innocent man anywhere in the history of the United States."
For the first two years of Trump's presidency, the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 election overshadowed every aspect of Trump's presidency. The investigation led to the arrests of numerous Trump associates, such as General Michael Flynn and Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone.
The President frequently says the investigation cleared his name, reporting "no collusion," but that is completely false. The investigation found that there was insufficient evidence to argue beyond a shadow of a doubt that Trump colluded with a foreign power to advance his campaign.
What's more, the Mueller investigation is now the least of Trump's legal woes. He's being investigated for potential fraud regarding his work at the Trump administration, though he likely won't face comeuppance for these until he's no longer President.
People found the claim absurd, even for Trump.
People have grown weary of the hyperbole.
Americans have the chance to make Trump a one term president on Election Day, November 3.
