Washington D.C. [United States], Jan. 20 (ANI): President-elect Donald Trump told a gathering at his Washington hotel, a day before his inauguration, that his cabinet has "the highest IQ" in history of the country. "We have by far the highest IQ of any cabinet ever assembled," ABC news quoted Trump, as saying during a Congressional leadership luncheon. Trump lauded a handful of congressional leaders, particularly House Speaker Paul Ryan with whom he had an unpleasant relationship during the election campaign. 'He has got so much legislation to write - and he's actually got somebody who's going to sign it,' Trump said in reference to Ryan. The President-elect said that he and Ryan are doing really well together. Praising Health and Human Services secretary-designate Dr. Tom Price, Trump said, "Democrats wanted to end his career so fast, and then they found out he's so smart." Trump described his attorney general choice Senator Jeff Sessions as legendary. Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence will attend a wreath-laying at Arlington National Cemetery after the lunch.
