President Donald Trump doesn’t have a reputation for modesty, but he was taking special pride in his cabinet selections Thursday afternoon, telling the crowd at a leadership luncheon that his administration will be the smartest ever put together.
Not only are his nominees working together, he said, his team has “the highest IQ of any cabinet ever assembled.”
It was a line almost tailor-made to infuriate Democrats.
Speaking at the Trump International Hotel in Washington a day before his inauguration, Trump praised “the legendary Jeff Sessions,” his nominee for U.S. attorney general. He also took a moment to mention United Nations Ambassador-nominee and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, Health and Human Services Secretary-nominee Dr. Tom Price, and Treasury Secretary-nominee Steve Mnuchin, among others.
Other nominees for Trump’s cabinet include Rex Tillerson for secretary of state, Betsy DeVos for education secretary, Elaine Chao for secretary of transportation, Dr. Ben Carson for secretary of housing and urban development, and retired Gen. John Kelly, secretary of homeland security.
Trump does seem to have surrounded himself with a group of smart and capable people ready to assist him in leading the country.
Take a look at Trump’s remarks below. He mentions his cabinet having the highest IQ in the last 10 seconds of the clip.
It’s no surprise that Trump would take pride in his cabinet picks, and the fact that he took a moment to brag about them probably offended every member of President Barack Obama’s team.
His claim could very well be true — the collective genius of Trump’s cabinet easily shames any group of Democrats ever assembled.
