JPMorgan Chase & Co. CEO Jamie Dimon on Wednesday predicted President TrumpDonald John TrumpRosenstein expected to leave DOJ next month: reports Allies wary of Shanahan's assurances with looming presence of Trump States file lawsuit seeking to block Trump's national emergency declaration MORE won’t be in office for a second term. 

“If I had to bet, I’d bet three and a half,” Dimon said when asked at an Economic Club of Chicago luncheon how many years Trump will be in office, according to Reuters.


“But the Democrats have to come up with a reasonable candidate … or Trump will win again,” he added. Dimon suggested Democrats push a “pro-free enterprise” agenda. 

The latest polls have shown Trump with his lowest approval ratings to date. A poll last week showed 41 percent of people approve of Trump’s performance, while 59 percent disapprove. 

Dimon also reportedly expressed support for the Republican tax reform plan, which calls for reducing the corporate tax cut from 35 percent to 20 percent. 

Dimon took over earlier this year as the chairman of the Business Roundtable, giving him a prominent position to advocate for business interests. The role comes with a two-year term.
