JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon praises Trump's time as president

 January 18, 2024

In the wake of former President Donald Trump's historic Iowa victory, many are finally coming around to admitting that we need him back in office to get America back on track.

According to Fox News, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon presumably stunned the business world with his recent comments regarding Trump and his MAGA way of doing business.

During a bombshell Fox Business interview with Maria Bartiromo, Dimon praised Trump for his handling of the economy, immigration, China and other important issues.

Notably, he warned that Trump's critics should back off of disparaging the MAGA movement.

"I think we should stop insulting the other side, including ‘MAGA.’ I've mentioned publicly many times that a lot of people have voted for President Trump, not because they believe in his family values, but they look at some of the things he did," Dimon said.

Dimon drew extra attention when he called out Democrats, suggesting they be a little more "thoughtful" toward those who believe in the MAGA way of doing things.

"He grew the economy. He was right about NATO, they spend more money. He was right… about China. He was right that… some regulations do not cause positive output. So, that's why they're voting for him, and I think the Democrats should be a little more thoughtful when they talk about ‘MAGA,'" Dimon said.

In a CNBC interview, Dimon echoed his message regarding Trump. He noted that he wasn't fond of some of Trump's rhetoric during his term, but the results speak for themselves.

"I don’t like how he said things about Mexico […] but he wasn’t wrong about some of these critical issues, and that’s why they’re voting for him," Dimon told CNBC this week.

"I think people should be a little more respectful of our fellow citizens," Dimon added.

Dimon's praise came after Trump dominated the Iowa caucuses, winning over all but one of the state's 99 counties.

Trump continues to also dominate the polls, and has bested President Joe Biden in several hypothetical matchups.

Only time will if other business leaders finally admit that things were simply better under Trump.
