Boy, I was dead wrong. "I can't beat the liberal side of the Democratic Party", he added, in a reference to his status as a top Wall Street banker. "I would love to be president of the United States of America" he said, according to a Vanity Fair article. "I am part of the elite", Dimon continued.

But he flaunted his business success in an additional dig at Trump. Dimon went on to complain that the public does not look "at Trump as part of the elite", instead, "They look at him as the upstart who punched the elite in the nose every day".

He added, pointing to himself, "And by the way this wealthy New Yorker actually earned his money".

"It wasn't a gift from daddy", Dimon said, according to CNBC, in another jab at the president. She says that, not me, ' he said.

"I should not have said it", he said in a statement.
