Jamie Dimon lashes out at ‘childish behavior’ from Congress amid deadlock over coronavirus relief
JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon criticized lawmakers for a months-long deadlock over a second round of coronavirus relief to help unemployed Americans and struggling businesses as the pandemic deepens. “I know now we have this big debate. Is it $2.2 trillion, $1.5 trillion?” Dimon said Wednesday, referring to competing visions for a relief bill from Democrats and Republicans, at the New York Times’ Dealbook conference. “You gotta be kidding me,” Dimon told Andrew Ross Sorkin. “I mean just split the baby and move on. This is childish behavior on the part of our politicians."
