Trump loves to brag about his I.Q., something no one can corroborate. But guess what. One can infer based on his overall performance in school and real life.
Does someone with a high IQ really need to send out a tweet like the following?
Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don't feel so stupid or insecure,it's not your fault

Does anyone believe the IQ that he claims?
Some think he is a genius, others still can't believe he is President. But, how smart is he really? Is his I.Q. really very high?
According to Snopes.com,
A chart purportedly ranking the intelligence quotients of former presidents of the United States made the rounds on social media in December 2016, along with the claim that the President-elect would rank among the smartest, boasting an IQ of 156: ...
This article is chock-full of logical missteps and factual inaccuracies. Donald Trump’s official school transcripts are not available, so it is impossible to know his actual scholastic aptitude scores. While the article’s author used Wharton’s general admission requirements to estimate Trump’s IQ, the math still doesn’t quite add up.
According to PrepScholar.com, Wharton’s SAT requirements are currently set at 1500. This roughly translatesto an IQ score between 145 and 149, not 156. Regardless, Wharton’s admission requirements are irrelevant, since Trump did not enter Wharton as a freshman. He transferred there his junior year, and Wharton does not list SAT scores among its requirements for transfer students.
Gwenda Blair claimed in her 2001 biography about Donald Trump and his family that the President-elect was admitted to Wharton thanks to a friendly admissions officer:
According to Snopes, the claim that Trump has an IQ of 156 is false.
Now, I have never been a fan of IQ tests even as mine turned out pretty high. I see them as a biased. If you are not aware of a particular culture, the numbers could be off by quite a bit. So when you take those online IQ tests, just do not take them too seriously. Likewise, no one should feel inferior or superior based on these types of tests.
