Trump Reportedly Considering JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon For Treasury Secretary

Linette Lopez reports for Business Insider:

jamie dimonPresident-elect Donald Trump is considering offering the post of Treasury secretary to JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon, CNBC’s Kate Kelly is reporting.

A lifelong Democrat, Dimon supported Barack Obama in 2008 and during the aftermath of the financial crisis.

As post-financial-crisis Dodd-Frank regulation started to make an impact on the American financial system, however, he became much more critical.

On Wednesday, after Trump won Tuesday’s presidential election, Dimon sent a memo to JPMorgan employees calling them to come together for the nation. He also made a subtle dig at Trump’s stances on immigration and race.

[…] JPMorgan declined comment to Business Insider about Trump’s possible interest in Dimon as Treasury secretary. Steven Mnuchin, a former Goldman Sachs official, is also reportedly in the running for the position.
