White House: Trump’s IQ Test Challenge Was A Joke

The Hill reports:

President Trump did not imply he was smarter than Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, his top spokesperson said Tuesday, claiming his offer for both to take an IQ test was a joke. “The president certainly never implied that the secretary of State was not intelligent. He made a joke. Nothing more than that,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Tuesday. Sanders said the two men “had a great visit at lunch” and reiterated Trump has confidence in his secretary of State.
