    I personally do think that the statistic given in this article could indeed be true.

    Yes... I am of the belief that President Donald J. Trump could well have an IQ in the top
    one percent of the top one percent of the USA population.

    Combine that with the amazing range of life experience that he has had and you have a
    formula for one of America's greatest ever administrations?

    It could be true but only by coincidence. The only way “researchers” could establish anyone’s exact IQ would be if their research uncovered a full set of professionally performed IQ tests on the subject during their adult life.

    Anyway, having an above average IQ doesn’t stop someone doing stupid things (I wasted my time responding to this thread after all).

    I admit that I could be incorrect but I am hopeful that President Trump has a long range plan for USA - Mexico relations that could result in greatly improved conditions for the average resident of Mexico.

    At the minimum.... his proposal for a wall sets the stage for a clamp down on corruption
    by the leaders of Mexico who are obviously far too close to drug cartels.

    Judging by the way trump wastes his time sending brainless tweets, attacking people needlessly, spouting LIES, ogling his own daughter as a "hottie," I'd guess his IQ is more likely to be 15.6 ..... NOT 156.

    No freaking way!!! LOL!!!! I've spent a lot of time, decades, around people with high IQs as well as certified geniuses. Trump is definitely not one of them. All indications - his choice of language, his logic or lack thereof, his pedestrian interpretation of facts, his insecurity, his inane 3AM tweets - suggest me to me that he is below 130; and maybe well below that.

    He is a hell of a con man who has no conscience. That's how got rich.

    Trump is a thug. Nothing more.

    I admit that his statements on the surface don't seem to be by somebody with an extremely high IQ.....
    but he is actually tapping into an important principle that has helped to cause his employees to like him a lot.

    He spends a lot of his time talking with cooks and janitors and waiters at his hotels....... these people pass on how polite and funny and interesting he was when they talked to him.......
    and this motivates his workers to actually want to make him even more money.

    That is actually a brilliant strategy and helps to explain his habit of speaking in a way that seems
    rather blue collar.

    President Trump is capitalizing on this important principle of how he can be extremely well liked by the people who he depends on to make money. .

    If his IQ is 156 then I say for a smart man he sure says a lot of stupid (*)(*)(*)(*). I would think a man with an IQ of 156 would understand how the physical position one is located at when making an observation has a correlative effect upon how one perceives crowd size. A low angle of observation at close range gives a different perspective than an observation made from a higher point that is further from a crowd.

    Even President Obama is supposed to have had an IQ of 130 or so which is the low level of genius level IQ.

    I was told back in 1980 or so that I had an IQ of 118 after I wrote the SAT in order to apply to a USA college.


    President Trump seems to be applying the principle of "hiring up" which indicates a high level of confidence.

    If he ever reads the alternative theory on climate stabilization put forward by a New Mexico biologist and coach I bet he will immediately grasp the advantages of it over a carbon tax or cap and trade system.

    Trump's pretending to be stupid to fool people. His IQ is way up there - they're still trying to calculate it but he's aced all the tests they've come up with. When MENSA designs a special test for one person there must be a reason.

    I have to admit that I really am having fun with this!

    I am also sure that some of his supporters will learn something useful that they can use in discussions with people who can be convinced to vote for him in 2020.

    By the time the Democrats realize what Trump's pulling off on them they'll be the third party behind BLM who are getting way more financial support. It's going to be an interesting four years.

    If.... active Democrats would grab onto several candidates who would
    write and say what would benefit 320 million Americans....... rather than themselves,
    the political atmosphere of the USA could be altered for the better.

    Politics is too adversarial.

    Here is the kind of opponent that the Democrats should put up against President Donald Trump in 2020.

    It’s hard to believe that Ivanka is Donald Trump’s daughter especially after looking at her impressive IQ score of 140 which is nowhere near what her father must have scored looking at his track record of racism and sexism over the course of the 17 months of his presidential campaign. Ivanka attended Georgetown University for two years before deciding to transfer to Wharton Business School of University of Pennsylvania. She graduated with a degree in Economics in 2004 which later came in handy as she began working for one of the biggest investment banks on Wall Street.

    http://smartied.com/graduation/celebs-give-einstein-run-money-iq/40/

    It's probably around 130-140, which should be the Trump family's average IQ. Ivanka must be the smartest one in the Trump family.

    How do you know Ivanka's not a racist and sexist like her father and thus must have a low IQ? Has she been tested for racism?

    Perhaps a decade from now his name could well be added to that list.


    Here is an unusual way to have an IQ surge:

    True... President Trump's experiences in life and dealing with huge amounts of money and
    with people who are trying to rip him and his companies off...... is even more important for
    his capability to be of service to 320 million Americans.

    The Democrats need to find somebody who is not entirely interested in their own career at the expense of 320
    million Americans and seven billion residents of this planet.


    If the Democrats would put forward somebody like this writer.....
    all of us would benefit. Traditional politics are too adversarial......

    Jimmy carter was probably our smartest president and one of the worst. He was a nuclear engineer. Reagan was not smart by every account and may have had effects of early Alzheimer's yet was very good. The best presidents realize they are surrounded by the best in every field....they listen....they are not the smartest person in the room
