2020 Watch: Jamie Dimon Says He Could Beat Trump in 2020

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon said that he would beat President Trump in 2020, if Dimon decides to run, because he’s smarter than the president. Dimon made the remarks during an event in New York on Wednesday.

“I think I could beat Trump… because I’m as tough as he is. I’m smarter than he is,” Dimon said, according to CNBC. “I would be fine. He could punch me all he wants, it wouldn’t work with me. I’d fight right back.”

One self-identified problem for Dimon, though? The far-left wing of the Democratic Party. “I can’t beat the liberal side of the Democratic Party,” he said.

In the past, Dimon has said that he would not run for president in 2020 as he is committed to running JPMorgan Chase for the next five years.

Dimon also took a shot at Trump’s wealth at the event.

“And by the way, this wealthy New Yorker actually earned his money,” Dimon said. “It wasn’t a gift from Daddy.”

Shortly after the event, Dimon backtracked and released the following statement:

“I should not have said it. I’m not running for president. Proves I wouldn’t make a good politician. I get frustrated because I want all sides to come together to help solve big problems.”
