**Donald Trump takes aim at Jamie Dimon’s support for Nikki Haley’s presidential bid**

Former President Donald Trump has once again taken aim at JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, this time over his praise for Republican Nikki Haley and encouragement for business leaders to support her presidential bid. Trump launched a scathing attack on Dimon, referring to him as an “overrated Globalist.”

*Haley’s ascendancy and Dimon’s controversial support*

Haley, a former South Carolina governor who served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations in the Trump administration, has recently gained steam in the polls as a potential contender in the 2024 presidential race. The conservative political network, Americans for Prosperity Action, endorsed Haley, putting pressure on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for the second-place position in the GOP primary race. Dimon publicly lauded Haley during the New York Times DealBook conference, urging people to consider her as a better choice than Trump.

*Trump’s fiery response*

Trump, who is currently the front-runner in the 2024 GOP presidential primary, lashed out at Dimon’s support for Haley, expressing his longstanding disdain for the CEO. He took to Truth Social to express his disdain for Dimon and his advocacy for Haley, criticizing Dimon’s previous visits to the White House and expressing his relief at not having to deal with the CEO anymore.

*Historical clashes between Trump and Dimon*

This is not the first time that Trump and Dimon have locked horns. Their feud goes back to 2018 when Dimon claimed he could beat Trump in a presidential race, to which Trump responded by calling him a “nervous mess” and a “poor public speaker.” Their disagreement extended to policy matters such as the debt ceiling, with Dimon publicly criticizing Trump’s stance on defaulting on U.S. debt.

*JPMorgan declines to comment*

In response to Trump’s scathing remarks, JPMorgan declined to comment on the matter. The heated exchange between the former president and the influential CEO underscores the tension and division within the Republican party as potential candidates gear up for the 2024 presidential race. As the race continues to unfold, the feud between Trump and Dimon may play a significant role in shaping party dynamics and influencing voter sentiment.
