MORE falsely claimed during his campaign rally Wednesday night that he has never “had an empty seat at any event."

“We haven’t had an empty seat at any event,” Trump said, addressing supporters in Greenville, N.C.


Reporters online were quick to point out that the president’s statement is incorrect, with multiple events having open spaces, including Wednesday's rally.

Other Twitter users also spoke out against Trump’s claim.

This is not the first time Trump has said his campaign events were full. During a 2017 rally in Harrisburg, Pa., Trump said he broke the “all-time” record for an arena, but reporters tweeted “rows of empty seats here,” HuffPost reported.
