‘Nervous mess’ Jamie Dimon doesn’t have ‘the smarts’ to run for president

James Dimon

During an event Wednesday morning, Dimon said he thinks he could defeat Trump, as he is "as tough as he is" and "smarter than he is".

Still, Trump-never one to let a negative comment slide by, as per his advice in his 1987 memoir, The Art of the Deal-clapped back at Dimon, saying it's his "great economic policy" that makes bankers like Dimon look "much smarter than they are".

Dimon, as he has been sometimes wont to do after making grand claims, walked back his earlier comments, though some observers have noted that the latter part of his statement sounds suspiciously like something he would say if he were running for president. And this year, Dimon said the administration's policy of separating children from parents at the US border with Mexico was cruel. "I can't beat the liberal side of the Democratic Party".

Trump wrote on Twitter that Dimon didn't have "the aptitude or "smarts" to run for president, then congratulated himself. "I would be fine", Dimon said.

Dimon also suggested that his wealth was earned and not given to him by his father - another jab at Trump, whose father, Fred, gave him $1m in financing, millions drawn against his future inheritance and a share of his real estate holdings. "I get frustrated because I want all sides to come together to help solve big problems".

However, he still criticized Trump for the way the U.S. president earned his wealth. "It wasn't a gift from daddy", he added.
