Donald Trump's IQ obsession, in 22 quotes

(CNN)In an interview with Forbes magazine published Tuesday morning, President Trump talks about his high IQ to explain away reports that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson referred to him as a "moron" over the summer.

Said Trump: "I think it's fake news, but if he did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests. And I can tell you who is going to win."
This is hardly the first time that Trump has cited his reportedly sky-high IQ -- and the relatively low IQs of his political rivals -- to make a point or win an argument. In fact, it's one of his favorite pieces of rhetoric. Below are 22 times he's brandished his IQ as a political weapon. (Sidebar: What is Trump's actual IQ? We don't know.
