President Donald Trump touted his intelligence during a rally in Ohio Saturday, saying he’s “better than everything that they have been, including this,” while pointing to his brain.
The president made an appearance at the Lewis Center during a “Make America Great Again” rally to stump for Troy Balderson, who is in contention for a House seat to fill the remaining months of former Rep. Pat Tiberi’s term.
Trump was talking about “the elite” and cast himself as superior, specifically when it came to the 2016 presidential election.
“Let them keep calling it,” he said, referring to the upcoming elections.
Trump told the crowd of supporters they were far more intelligent than the so-called elite.
“You go to the best schools. You do a tremendous job. You own companies. You work for tremendous salaries. You are talented with your hands and your mind. Then you hear, ‘The elite has just said.’ The elite? More elite than me? I’m better than everything that they have been, including this (pointing to head). And I became president and they didn’t.
“And it’s driving them crazy,” he added.
The president also suggested that the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border was already being built, and that the U.S. military would be “stronger than it has ever been before.”
“We are building the wall. Don’t worry,” he said. “We have already started. We are building our wall and have started. We are doing things that people don’t even know about. We are defending our Constitution. We are taking care of our great vets. Our military will soon be stronger than it has ever been before, and the forgotten men and women of the United States are forgotten, no more.”
The president also blasted CNN and MSNBC, prompting cheers of, “CNN Sucks,” from the crowd.
