Jamie Dimon says he could beat Trump in an election: ‘I’m smarter than he is’

September 12, 2018


J.P. Morgan Chase Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon took a swipe at President Donald Trump, claiming that he could defeat the president in a head-to-head election.

“I think I could beat Trump,” Dimon said Wednesday during an event held at his bank’s Park Avenue headquarters in New York. “Because I’m as tough as he is, I’m smarter than he is. I would be fine. He could punch me all he wants, it wouldn’t work with me. I’d fight right back.”

Shortly after, Dimon addressed the uproar caused by his comments: “I should not have said it. I’m not running for president,” the CEO said about an hour after the original exchange. The off-the-cuff outburst “proves I wouldn’t make a good politician,” Dimon said. “I get frustrated because I want all sides to come together to help solve big problems.”

Dimon, 62, has been outspoken about what the U.S. needs to do to improve economic growth for a broader set of participants. He’s also pushed for common-sense reform on topics ranging from immigration policy to infrastructure spending. So he’s often asked whether he would run for president. In the past, he has said that while he would like running the country, he could never win an election.

    I think Dimon is excellent at what he does. He has great insight into what is going on in the world and I like some of his views. He is a Democrat not a Socialist (that’s a problem) None of the Socialist Democrats know who he is and would probably hate him. (right Lizzy) Bernie Sanders would drive his nutty following away from him and finally Trump will beat him like he did in the Primaries.
    I like him but he won’t even be pushed into it especially for the Democrats.

    Dimon has already disqualified himself on at least two counts: (If not more!):
    1. He’s a banker, works banker’s hours, would drop dead if he tried to work as hard as President Trump does. Trump is not into afternoon cocktails, bankers can’t live without them. Cheeseburgers fortify Trump, a swelled-head banker could not live on them.
    2. Dimon’s totally in love with himself, there wouldn’t be enough mirrors in the White House for him, and his head wouldn’t fit in the White House anyway, it’s just too big due to all the credit he gives himself. Increasing the “head room” in the entire building would add too much to the national debt. Raising the WH roof, resulting from necessary building alterations would cause a hazard to air traffic recognition of established land marks. He should think of being the PM of Canada, where he can bask in a spotlight for extra “smart” wise-guys, just as “Trudough” has done, who failed to believe how complicated foreign relations can be, which requires a different “smarts” than P & L sheets to read.
