On Wednesday, Mr. Dimon said, “I regret and should not have made that comment. I was trying to emphasize the strength and longevity of our company.”
In a second statement later in the day, Mr. Dimon added, “I regret my recent comment because it’s never right to joke about or denigrate any group of people, whether it’s a country, its leadership, or any part of a society and culture.”
On Wednesday afternoon in Beijing, Zhao Lijian, an official from China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, sidestepped a question about Mr. Dimon’s remarks during a daily press conference and dismissed media reports on it as attempts to draw eyeballs.
Nobody expects the Chinese Communist Party.
The CCP is not known for its sense of humor.
