President Donald Trump really besmirched the corporate elite while taking the Presidency. Unlike any President in recent memory, he has called out the powers-that-be in a way that has irked them immeasurably.
Jamie Dimon, CEO of J.P. Morgan, is clearly bitter about the rise of the Donald. To vent his frustrations, he told the mainstream media that he could do a better job than Trump as President due to his intelligence advantage.
“I think I could beat Trump,” Dimon said. “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.”
He also insulted Trump’s wealth, a jab clearly designed to hit the President where it hurts.
“This wealthy New Yorker,” Dimon said pointing to himself, CNBC reported, “actually earned his money. It wasn’t a gift from daddy.”
Predictably, Trump did not take these comments lying down. He fired back at the globalist bankster shortly afterward with one of his signature provocative tweets.
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. I’ve made a lot of bankers, and others, look much smarter than they are with my great economic policy!

Previously, Dimon had said that it is “almost an embarrassment to be an American citizen traveling around the world and listening to the stupid s— we have to deal with in this country.” He was not referring specifically to Trump, but the negative implication toward the President is implied in his comment.
After Trump hit him, Dimon immediately groveled and walked back his initial comments.
“I should not have said it. I’m not running for President,” Dimon said in a public statement. “Proves I wouldn’t make a good politician. I get frustrated because I want all sides to come together to help solve big problems.”
While Trump has not completely shut out the banksters from his administration – as Goldman Sachs operatives have held key cabinet posts from the start – the fact that the banksters are so offended by his style and his agenda is clearly a good sign.
