JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon hinted at entering politics in the future as the 2024 presidential race heats up.

Bloomberg Television reporter Stephen Engle told Dimon on Wednesday that he didn't "think Wall Street's too pleased about a potential Trump versus Biden runoff next year" and asked whether he "would run for public office or even accept a cabinet position."

"Obviously, it's crossed my mind because people mention things to you and stuff like that. I love my country and maybe one day I'll serve my country in one capacity or another, but I love what I do," Dimon, 67, responded.

However, Dimon also said he is "quite happy" working at JPMorgan, adding, "So now I'm here."

In 2016, Dimon said he would "love to be president," but said it is "too hard and too late" for him to do so, according to CNN.

Two years later, Dimon said, "I think I could beat Trump" in a presidential election. "I’m as tough as he is, I’m smarter than he is. I would be fine. He could punch me all he wants, it wouldn’t work with me."

He quickly walked back those comments and said he should not have made that statement and he was not running for the White House.
