Barack Obama, IQ unknown
The IQ of the 44th President of the USA (2009-2017) is unknown, but the fact that he was a constitutional lawyer before he was elected president inevitably makes him a man of intelligence.
Donald Trump, IQ unknown
The 45th President of the USA (2017-2021) has often boasted of his impressive IQ. Now that he’s no longer President of the United States, we may get proof of that.
Joe Biden, IQ unknown
The IQ of the current and 46th President of the USA (2021 -) is not known, but North Korea’s ruler Kim Jong Un is said to have described him as a “person with a low IQ” to Donald Trump.
