There's an "extensive list" of geopolitical risks that could hurt U.S. economic growth, J.P. Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon said to analysts and reporters Friday morning.

The big picture: Dimon's warning about what could stunt the strength of the economy comes after the stock market's rough few days that rattled investors.

Here's what Dimon said, per Business Insider and a transcript of the earnings call with analysts:

  • On the geopolitical risks: "Brexit, Italy, trade, reversals of [quantitative easing], Turkey, Argentina, Saudi Arabia, it's an extensive list of stuff ... When you look at the whole landscape I wouldn't ignore all that and the chance that one of those could go bad."
  • On rising rates and treasury yields: "I have much higher odds of it being 4% than most other people ... the market may not take it that well if rates go up because it'll surprise people, but people shouldn't be surprised."
  • On communication with the Trump administration: "The business community has active and good dialogue across the whole administration ... I'll give you one example, on trade, the business community didn't agree with the tactics, but we like the fact he did NAFTA, he's talking to Europe and Japan, and it looks like he'll start talking again to China."

China said Monday that it will ban entry to Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) over their criticisms of human rights abuses in Xinjiang, the AP reports.

The big picture: The move seems to be retaliatory after the U.S. announced sanctions on four Chinese officials for human rights abuses against Uighur Muslims and other ethnic minorities in the region last week.

Roger Stone told Axios in a phone interview that he plans to write and speak for President Trump's re-election now that Stone "won't die in a squalid hellhole of corona-19 virus."

"I'm asthmatic," said Stone, 67. "Sending me to a prison where I could not be socially distanced ... would, I think, be a death sentence."
