    Considering the recent letter to Tayyip Erdogan that was written at a Grade 5 level, is Donald Trump really the genius that he claims he is?

    Bonus question: is that last line of the letter a threat or a promise?

    Text of Trump's letter to Turkish President Erdogan

    A brilliant genius is Obama (mostly).

    A brilliant evil genius is Putin.

    Trump is unlike either of those.

    I mean...I had to fact check to make sure the letter wasn't a parody.

    Very much so. And he's someone who actually doesn't care what others think of what he does and how he does it. Unlike Trump who gets worked up and defensive over even the most trivial of slights against him. And with Obama, you could tell with his writing and speeches he was of a higher intelligence, and arguably an even better speaker and more charismatic person than Trump. Again, it's in his speeches and some of the very sharp remarks he made to people.

    I think Obama may go down in history as a President that was thought of as 8/10 initially, but after seeing what happened when you get the opposite, people will want to go back and revise their score to a 10/10.

    I really don't know and don't much care with his IQ really is. His narcissism and sociopathic personality disorders are so much in evidence that his intelligence is basically irrelevant.

    When I look at him, I see a deeply unhappy person who demands adoration because of his inner emptiness.

    But isn't Turkey in the midst of a total takeover of Syria? I think Trump is allowing this to happen, but he's watching closely... He wants Erdogan to know that, so he tells him bluntly.

    He is straight to the point.

    I don't believe anything he says given his history of lying. I'm guessing that someone in the administration decided to do this and he muttered "whatever". Seriously. I've never seen anyone who could say something and then deny he said it two seconds later when it's been captured on video. And then attack the one that pointed out that he's lying to people's faces.

    He's so extreme that I would call him an archetype of the worst parts of humanity as it is today.

    Just do not take him seriously...the best way to behave losing a chess game is to knock the board off the table...That is his part in the play
