JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon decided to take on President Donald Trump and made some bold claims about how he could take down the president if he ran against him in 2020.
“I think I could beat Trump because I’m as tough as he is, I’m smarter than he is. I would be fine,” said Dimon. “He could punch me all he wants – it wouldn’t work with me. I’d fight right back.”
“And, by the way, this wealthy New Yorker actually earned his money,” Dimon jabbed. “It wasn’t a gift from Daddy.”
It didn’t take long for President Trump to receive word of Dimon’s comments and head over to his trusty Twitter account to unleash some fury.
“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,” tweeted President Trump. “I’ve made a lot of bankers, and others, look much smarter than they are with my great economic policy!”
It didn’t take long for Dimon to issue an apology.
“I should not have said it. I’m not running for president,” said Dimon. “Proves I wouldn’t make a good politician. I get frustrated because I want all sides to come together to help solve big problems.”
It’s not an all anti-Trump world, as the media would like you to believe, however.
While most of Hollywood’s elite loves to bash President Donald Trump, one actor stands out in his support of the president.
Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight spoke out against the left and how they constantly attack the president using “lies and slanders” just because he is fulfilling campaign promises and getting things done.
“The virulence is because he's effective," said Voight. "He's actually doing what said he would do. Amazing thing in itself, isn't it?" Voight said on Sunday’s "Life, Liberty & Levin.”
He went on to say that Trump’s successes have turned the liberal media upside down and all they can do is attack the president and his administration after every move they make.
"This is their dying breath. They have to stop him somehow. So you see these very extraordinary things they come up with, that's what they do," Voight continued. "Conjuring lies and slanders against this man trying to destroy this presidency. It's that simple.”
When asked about the number of liberals in Hollywood compared to conservatives, Voight said that there are more conservatives than you think, but there is no doubt that liberals have “infiltrated” the industry.
"Why? Because they're important. That's why the left is focused on Hollywood, that's why their focused on our universities," Voight said. "They know exactly what they're doing. They've organized and been very effective. So we have a very big job on our hands."
