10/26/2022 Tweet - "Jamie Dimon became a billionaire after his bank was fined billions for mortgage fraud, illegally foreclosing on military families & bribing foreign officials. Now, he's in Saudi Arabia to do business with a country partnering with Russia to damage our economy. Pathetic."

10/20/2022 Tweet - "Corporate profits are at a 70-year high, median wages have gone down the sharpest in 25 years and corporations are spending $1 trillion on stock buybacks.
