‘Nervous Mess’: Trump Knocks Potential 2020 Challenger In Retaliation

Democrats are still looking for their candidate for the 2020 presidential elections. Names like Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Michelle Obama have been considered as they have built a reputation for liberalism. Could someone with pull within the Democrat Party be enough to unite the party and topple Trump?

Other names like Kamala Harris and Cory Booker have also begun to join in on presidential contention conversations. Could newcomers to the national political stage stand against him?

Democrats are even considering political outsiders and top businessmen like Tom Steyer and Jamie Dimon. The latter of the two recently said he was smarter than Trump and could beat him in a White House bid.

“I’m as tough as he is. I’m smarter than he is,” Dimon said at a JPMorgan event on Wednesday, as Politico reports.

“I think I could beat Trump,” he continued. “I would be fine. He could punch me all he wants, it wouldn’t work with me. I’d fight right back.”

The feud was on.

In a fiery post on social media, President Trump called Dimon a “nervous mess” and said he wouldn’t stand a chance in the presidential showdown.

“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,” Trump said. “I’ve made a lot of bankers, and others, look much smarter than they are with my great economic policy!”

Here’s more on the feud, from Reuters:

The Republican president, known for his acerbic insults on Twitter, was hitting back at Dimon for saying on Wednesday that he was smarter than Trump and could beat him in a White House race. Dimon quickly walked back those comments in a statement.

Dimon, at an event promoting a $500 million JPMorgan investment in cities, had earlier said: “I think I could beat Trump … because I’m as tough as he is, I’m smarter than he is,” according to CNBC. “I can’t beat the liberal side of the Democratic Party.”

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

Dimon later walked back his comments and said he easily gets frustrated over political problems.

“I should not have said it. I’m not running for President,” Dimon said later, according to the Politico report. “Proves I wouldn’t make a good politician. I get frustrated because I want all sides to come together to help solve big problems.”
