From there, Mr. Obama attended another fundraiser at the home of Hamilton “Tony” E. James, president of the Blackstone Group, one of the world’s largest private-equity firms. The fundraiser comes as Mr. Obama’s campaign team is taking swipes anew at Mr. Romney for his work at the helm of Bain Capital, another such firm.

Tickets for the second fundraiser cost $35,800 per person, with 60 people attending.

Mr. Obama also told the audience on “The View” that the $2 billion in trading losses incurred by JPMorgan Chase exemplified the need for Wall Street reform.

“JPMorgan is one of the best-managed banks there is,” Mr. Obama said. “Jamie Dimon, the head of it, is one of the smartest bankers we got and they still lost $2 billion and counting. We don’t know all the details. It’s going to be investigated, but this is why we passed Wall Street reform.”

His full interview on “The View” will air Tuesday.
