‘That makes him a moron’: Trump’s IQ challenge to Rex Tillerson has Twitter laughing
Donald Trump’s feud with Rex Tillerson took another turn, after the US president joked that the two should compare IQ scores.world Updated: Oct 11, 2017 16:09 IST
US President Donald Trump challenged Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to “compare IQ tests,” delivering a sharp-edged ribbing that only served to highlight his seemingly shaky relationship with the top diplomat in his cabinet. The White House insisted the president was only joking.
Trump issued the challenge in an interview with Forbes magazine, when asked about reports that Tillerson called him a “moron” after a classified briefing this summer. The President responded that if the claim was true, the two should duke it out in a battle of brainpower.
“And I can tell you who is going to win,” Trump said.
Most Twitter users joked about Trump’s challenge while others digged out his 2013 tweets about having a high IQ. Here’s a look at some of the hilarious responses:

If a man says he's not a racist, he's probably a racist.— Nick Jack Pappas (@Pappiness) October 10, 2017
If he brags about his high IQ, he probably has a low IQ.
Trump has done both.

Trump's IQ doesn't matter (I suspect it's low). What matters is he's remarkably ignorant about nearly everything and incapable of learning.— Tony Schwartz (@tonyschwartz) October 10, 2017
Some users digged up Trump’s 2013 tweet on IQ:
