Despite JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon issuing a very public apology after gloating on Wednesday that he could beat Trump in an election (if he felt like running, that is), Trump has hit back at a man who was once rumored to be a top candidate for Treasury Secretary, claiming in an unusually passive aggressive tweet that Dimon doesn't have the brainpower to run the US.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 13, 2018 On Wednesday, Dimon told a small New York audience that he thinks he could beat Donald Trump in an election, claiming that “I think I could beat Trump.

It wasn't a gift from Daddy” (this, despite the fact that Dimon's father was a well-respected banker who absolutely helped his son find an early footing in the industry).

In the past, Dimon has said that, while he would love to run the country, he could never win an election.
