During an exclusive interview with Bloomberg news on Monday, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon praised Florida and Texas for being “pro-America” states.
Dimon was asked by Bloomberg’s Ed Hammond whether he would “like to see more” of Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ “hands-on approach to business.”
To this, Dimon said he was a “full-throated, red-blooded American patriot supporter of free enterprise.”
Also praising Texas, Dimon said both states are “pro-business” and “pro-America.”
Dimon is not the only one praising Pro-American states. During an interview with CNN, investor and Shark Tank star Kevin O’Leary said he no longer puts his money into Democrat-led states because they are “uninvestable” and “punishing people if they’re successful.”
JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon, as well as Shark Tank star Kevin O’Leary, both agree that republican states are the best for businesses to settle down in. O’Leary highlighted how Democrat-led states have become “uninvestable” by placing heavy taxes on successful people. In comparison, Dimon noted that Republican pro-American states like Texas and Florida serve to be the perfect atmosphere for free enterprise growth and favor prosperous individuals.
