Less than 24 hours after he was declared winner and almost three months to his inauguration , Donald Trump has reached out to James Dimon, chairman and CEO of JP Morgan Chase , to take up the office of Secretary of the Treasury. The Treasury department like our ministry of finance manages all US government revenues and expenses.

Jamie Dimon, named into Institutional Investor’s Best CEOs list in the All-America Executive Team Survey from 2008 through 2011, listed four times amongst Times 100 most influential people on earth and globally accepted as the best CEO of the biggest bank in America, is actually a global brand in international finance management .

The interesting thing is that James Dimon is a Democrat and has donated money to the Democratic Party in the past, predicted a Hillary Clinton win a few weeks ago and had subtly mocked Donald Trump in a public event recently.

A Senior person on President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team contacted JPMorgan Chase & Co Chief Executive Jamie Dimon to see if he would be interested in being U.S. Treasury secretary, a person familiar with the matter said on Thursday.
It is unclear how Dimon responded, said the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly. Dimon has said multiple times in the past that he is not interested in the job – most recently in September.
