JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, whose bank has a record of discriminating against conservatives, admitted that 45th President Trump and the MAGA movement were right about immigration, China, the economy, and other issues during an interview with CNBC from perhaps the most unlikely location on earth to make such admissions – Davos, Switzerland, at the World Economic Forum.
Dimon conceded during his CNBC interview that President Trump and the MAGA movement were right about key issues affecting America, and said that he came to appreciate how much drive and innovation fills the entire country, “not just the Silicon Valley,” when he took a recent bus trip around the United States.
Ironically, Dimon was wearing a Ukrainian flag lapel as he, among other things, admitted that Trump was “kind of right about NATO.”
“I wish the Democrats would think a little more carefully when they talk about MAGA,” Dimon told New York Times columnist and CNBC host Andrew Ross Sorkin during a panel-style interview from Davos, where Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum is holding its 2024 summit.
“They’re scapegoating” Trump voters, Dimon said.
“Take a step back. Be honest. He’s kind of right about NATO. Kind of right about immigration. He grew the economy quite well,” Dimon went on, as the CNBC panel started to panic, interjecting the fact that Trump called Covid the “China Virus,” as if it were inaccurate.
“He was right about some of China,” Dimon said.
“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 them. And I think people should be a little more respectful of our fellow citizens.”
“The Democrats have done a pretty good job with ‘the deplorables hugging onto their Bibles and their beer and their guns.’ I mean really? Can we just stop that stuff and actually grow up and treat other people with respect and listen to them a little bit?”
“And I think this negative talk about MAGA is going to hurt Biden’s election campaign,” he said.
