Trump tweeted that Dimon "doesn't have the aptitude or "smarts" to be president, adding that he's "a poor public speaker & nervous mess".

US President Donald Trump had a sharp rejoinder for Mr Jamie Dimon on Thursday (Sept 13), saying the JPMorgan chief executive lacked the "smarts" to be president but was otherwise wonderful.

Mr. Trump's assertion comes after Dimon remarked on Wednesday that he could beat President Trump in a presidential election, before backpedaling as his comments drew media attention.

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'm not running for president".

"I should not have said it", Dimon wrote in the statement. "He could punch me all he wants, it wouldn't work with me". "It wasn't a gift from Daddy".

"I'm like a really smart person", said Donald Trump. Proves I wouldn't make a good politician.

"I can't beat the liberal side of the Democratic Party".

However, he still criticized Trump for the way the United States president earned his wealth.

Last year, Dimon said it was "almost an embarrassment to be an American citizen traveling around the world and listening to the stupid shit we have to deal with in this country".

A presidential run from Dimon would likely be welcomed on Wall Street, but it might not be met with quite so much enthusiasm in cryptocurrency circles.
