Trump must control his ego

One of the challenges of Donald Trump's presidency is not to allow his ego to get in the way of leading effectively. Case in point: Trump claims his hand-picked Cabinet has the highest IQ of any Cabinet in history. How can he possibly know that? His "know-it- all" attitude is emblematic of an unhealthy ego. The Cabinet will be confirmed as the Republicans control the Senate. However, there are weaknesses in a Cabinet built largely of bankers, generals and billionaires.
