Can we tell if Donald Trump has a high IQ?

Question: How often does President Trump talk about IQ?

Answer: All the time.

When Mr Trump recently boasted that his IQ was higher than Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's, it was part of a pattern.

In 2013, he tweeted that his IQ was "much higher" than Barack Obama and George W Bush.

He has also claimed a higher IQ than comedian Jon Stewart and British star of The Apprentice, Lord Sugar.

Despite this, Mr Trump has never revealed his own IQ. So can we work it out..... [

I don't know about his IQ but I have a very strong feeling he does not read too well .
This could explain his dithering and " water in the ocean , lots of ocean water in the ocean ) gaffs . Also the made up African country he got the first letter and just made the rest up ..........hey a new country !!!! Well he is the POTUS why not. ?
Seriously , I don't think the man can read

An IQ of a baked bean, comes to mind.

Without being too disrespectful to a baked bean. Wink

If youíre looking for a debate about Trumpís IQ I suspect you are going to be sadly disappointed. Laughing

Hey, from your pic. I always thought of you as being much slimmer - and with bigger whiskers of course. Laughing Laughing Laughing

I really don't know what IQ has to do with intelligence. Einstein couldn't read, Beethoven was deaf, Clinton was blind (or seemed to be) Bush was as ignorant as a pig, Reagan was an actor so not real, Lizzie has killed all around her, Thatcher has rusted, etc, etc, etc. However, there's hope? Brexit looms and with it all the gains and no pain. Well done to the great Master Cameron. Now, there's a man with a very high IQ and long may he live to remember his great and wonderful gift to the British people.

As a tutor of mine used to say "What is intelligence? Something measured by intelligence tests."

That's as good a definition as many of the ones I've read.

Yes he could, and he could write eloquently too.

He was most comfortable with German, and could read English but found writing in English a challenge only because of what he thought of as the language's convoluted spelling rules.

He didn't study French for very long, but was as competent as most people in the language at that stage....

Actually, he couldn't. He was also dyslexic and was sent home on many occasions from school for dreaming. Have no idea if he could dream or not but i'm sure the teacher knew exactly what he could or couldn't do. By the way, Trump is registered on Mensa as having one of their highest ever IQ's.

Actually he could and there is no proof that he was dyslexic.

He likely bought it lol and Einstein could read . He was a late developer speech wise but not dyslexic nor illiterate

Surely Trump and IQ don't belong in the same sentence.

Surely he'd do incredibly well, better than anybody else, ever, ever in the language comprehension section.
