"Presidents get a lot of credit [and] a lot of blame for things they didn't do, but the president has done things which accelerated growth," Dimon told CNBC's Wilfred Frost on "Closing Bell. " "We needed competitive taxes. The way the American public should be thinking of it is: For 20 years, we've been increasingly uncompetitive, driving capital and brains overseas."
Dimon also said some of the regulatory rollbacks pushed by Trump are helping small businesses. "We've had less small business formation in America than in any other recovery," he said. "This has accelerated the growth. It's been 20 percent over 10 years; it should've been 40. The reason it wasn't 40 is because of a lot of things that we did hurt ourselves."
Dimon's comments come after the Commerce Department said Friday the U.S. economy grew by 4.1 percent in the second quarter. That marked the highest growth rate since the third quarter of 2014, when the economy expanded by 4.9 percent.
Late last year, Trump signed a bill that lowered the federal corporate tax rate to 21 percent from 35 percent. Trump also eased or rolled back last year several pieces of regulation he felt were hurting U.S. businesses.
But Dimon said he is concerned that Trump's trade policies could be a headwind to the U.S. economic expansion, noting: "I think it could offset some of the benefits " of the tax overhaul and other measures.
The Trump administration has taken an increasingly protectionist stance on trade recently. Earlier this month, the U.S. slapped tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese goods. The U.S. has also implemented tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Mexico, Canada and the European Union. They have retaliated against those levies with tariffs of their own.
