Speculation over Dimon had grown after a report earlier this month claimed Trump’s advisers were considering him to serve as secretary of the Treasury.
In the past, Dimon has repeatedly said he isn’t interested in the job.
During his presidential campaign, Trump routinely criticized “international bankers” and “elites.”
In 2013, Trump called Dimon “the worst banker in the United States.”
