Trump is reportedly considering JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon for Treasury secretary


CNBC reports that Dimon, one of Wall Street's most influential voices, is in the running.

Not interested? Others in the running

CNBC cited anonymous sources that Donald Trump's advisors had said the banking executive was being considered for the Treasury post.

However, according to CNBC's report, their sources said Dimon has already said he would not be interested in the role.

Further, CNBC pointed out that there are others also being considered for the job, including a former Goldman Sachs official.

Following Trump's presidential upset, Wall Street has seemingly come to terms with the results.

Business-friendly deals

Since the election, energy and tech stocks have skid but a handful of other sectors have soared, including defense, bio/pharma and banking. For banks, the very real possibility of President-elect Trump passing business-friendly policies has helped boost their confidence.

One such example could be backing off a bit from Dodd-Frank regulations put in place after the 2008 financial crisis.

Spokespersons for the Trump camp and JPMorgan haven't commented.

In any case, even if Dimon is offered the gig, he could still turn it down.
