JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon tends to speak his mind after thinking about big problems. That’s why he’s often been considered the most significant financial leader in the past five decades. Earlier in the week, at an event hosted by The New York Times, the influential Wall Streeter said that he’s been not only urging Republicans to support Nikki Haley, but has also been telling Democrats to jump ship and throw in for the former UN Ambassador. 

Like many others in his social sphere, Dimon believes that Haley is the great Trump Stopper. 

Politico writes:

“If you’re a very liberal Democrat, I urge you to help Nikki Haley, too. Give them a choice on the Republican side that might be better than Trump,” Dimon, who leads the country’s largest commercial bank, said onstage at the 2023 DealBook Summit on Wednesday.

Dimon has been talking up Haley in recent weeks as the former South Carolina governor has gained in the polls. While she’s still trailing well behind Trump, she has won endorsements from an influential super PAC backed by the Koch network and has started to fundraise with Wall Street heavyweights.

When pressed if he’d support “anything but Trump,” Dimon pushed back.

“I would never say. He might be the president, I have to live with that too,” he said.

Dimon’s advice has been heeded. Last week, America’s News Desk reported that Haley has become the favorite of Wall Street and Never Trumpers.

The New York Times noted that over the past month, “a group of chief executives, hedge fund investors and corporate dealmakers from both parties have begun gravitating toward Ms. Haley and, in some cases, digging deeper into their pockets to help her.”

Haley currently stands in second place in New Hampshire but trails both Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in Iowa and nationally.
