In more election news, JPMorgan’s CEO Jamie Dimon criticized Democratic presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren during an interview with CNBC.

Jamie Dimon: “She uses some pretty harsh words, you know, some would say, vilifies successful people, so that — I don’t like vilifying anybody.”

Senator Warren fired back Tuesday, tweeting, “It’s really simple: Jamie Dimon and his buddies are successful in part because of the opportunities, workforce, and public services that we all paid for. …The fact that they’ve reacted so strongly—so angrily!—to being asked to chip in more tells you all you need to know. The system is working great for the wealthy and well-connected, and Jamie Dimon doesn’t want that to change. I’m going to fight to make sure it works for everyone.”
