Donald Trump Hits Back At JPMorgan’s Jamie Dimon As 'Nervous Mess'

An hour later, Dimon backtracked.

Trump, for his part, was not amused by Dimon's claim that he could best him in a general election, writing on Twitter that the banker doesn't have the "aptitude" or "smarts" and is moreover a "nervous mess" when speaking in public.

Predictably, Trump did not take these comments lying down.

At a NY event Wednesday morning, Dimon had claimed he could beat Trump in a presidential election, "because I'm as tough as he is, I'm smarter than he is". I would be fine. "I think I could beat Trump", he said, referring to a potential 2020 showdown. He could punch me all he wants. "I'd fight right back", Dimon said during a panel discussion with ABC News reporter Rebecca Jarvis.

"I can't beat the liberal side of the Democratic party", he lamented, urging Democrats to "get their act together in terms of understanding how society actually works".

Presidential emergency alert system text coming next week
Under the Warning, Alert, and Response Network (WARN) Act of 2006, cellphone users can not opt out of the presidential alerts. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on its role in planning the test alert.

Dimon, incidentally, was a member of Trump's strategy and policy forum prior to its disbanding, and he has praised the business-friendly tax cuts that the president signed into law previous year.

But the JPMorgan executive later issued a statement saying that he isn't running for president. Proves I wouldn't make a good politician.

Curiously, Dimon was a member of the strategy and policy group of Trump before disbanding and has praised his tax cuts when the president signed the law in 2017.

He told CNN in July that he doesn't always agree with Trump's policies. And this year, Dimon said the administration's policy of separating children from parents at the USA border with Mexico was cruel. He said in January he expects to be chief executive officer of JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N) for about five years.
