U.S. President Donald Trump said the JPMorgan chief executive lacked the “smarts” to be president but was otherwise great. Trump’s comments came as a result of Dimon saying, this past Wednesday that he was smarter than the current president and could beat him in a White House race.

“The problem with banker Jamie Dimon running for President is that he doesn’t have the aptitude or “smarts” & is a poor public speaker & nervous mess – otherwise he is wonderful,” President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter.

Dimon had said: “I think I could beat Trump … because I’m as tough as he is, I’m smarter than he is,” according to CNBC. “I can’t beat the liberal side of the Democratic Party.” “And by the way this wealthy New Yorker actually earned his money,” Dimon added. “It wasn’t a gift from Daddy.”

Dimon, 62, said in the past he wouldn’t run for president and does not have the temperament for the job. JPMorgan is the biggest bank in the United States.
