At a Thursday luncheon to honor congressional leaders, President-elect Donald Trump gave a brief speech, claiming his Cabinet had the highest IQ of any Cabinet in history.
Trump thanked supportive congressional leaders and members of his Cabinet, particularly prospective U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley and Health and Human Services secretary nominee Tom Price.
"They were so nice to Tom," Trump said sarcastically, referring to Price's grilling during his confirmation hearing.
However, Trump gave no evidence to support the "high-IQ" claim. Trump said in 2015 that Rick Perry, his pick to lead the Department of Energy, should "take an IQ test" before a Republican Party debate.

Trump has frequently used "low IQ" as an insult.
I know some of you may think l'm tough and harsh but actually I'm a very compassionate person (with a very high IQ) with strong common sense— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 21, 2013
And he's insisted his IQ is "very high."
He began the speech by giving his wife Melania the floor, despite her shaking her head.
Trump also said attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions would be an "outstanding star."
