If there is one thing that Donald Trump loves to brag about, it’s his so-called intelligence. He honestly thinks that if he says it enough that it will come true. However, as almost every American knows, Donald Trump is a few sandwiches short of a picnic lunch. As a result, he tries to compensate by claiming that everyone else is stupid. But Americans just aren’t buying it.
President Trump recently took to Twitter to attack JPMorgan Chase CEO, Jamie Dimon, who said that he could defeat the president in an election because he’s “smarter.”
“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 wrote.
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. I’ve made a lot of bankers, and others, look much smarter than they are with my great economic policy!

“I’ve made a lot of bankers, and others, look much smarter than they are with my great economic policy!”
“I think I could beat Trump … because I’m as tough as he is, I’m smarter than he is,” Dimon stated during an event where JPMorgan outlined a $500 million investment to boost economic growth around the world, according to CNBC.
“I can’t beat the liberal side of the Democratic Party,” he continued.
Dimon also told the crowd that he “actually earned my money. It wasn’t a gift from daddy,” Dimon explained, according to CNBC, in another slight at the president.
Dimon later backpedaled his remarks
“I should not have said it,” Dimon claim in a statement. “I’m not running for president. Proves I wouldn’t make a good politician. I get frustrated because I want all sides to come together to help solve big problems.”
Despite the rumours that he may run for office, Dimon claimed earlier this year that he remains committed to staying on at JPMorgan Chase for another five years, which would prevent him from launching a presidential campaign in 2020.
Trump this week boasted that “nobody is going to come close” to beating him in 2020.
Here’s how Americans reacted:
You make everyone around you look smarter because you do not know words….or grammar….or punctuation…or math…or science…or history. As McMasters, Kelly, Mattis, Cohn, Tillerson, Pruitt, Corker, Flake, Graham & Bannon have all said, you are a fucking moron.

PLEASE RESIGN! IT IS EMBARRASSING! You are not as smart as you think. I honestly think your mental health is something your family should be concerned about. If you were my family, I would take you to a facility immediately! RESIGN !!!
