Like him or hate him… Dallas Mavericks owner, “Shark Tank” investor, and avid Hillary Clinton supporter Mark Cuban doesn’t mince words.
And the outspoken billionaire now has a strong warning to the slew of Democrats vying to take down President Trump in 2020…
And the message is they CAN’T beat Trump!
According to a report from The Daily Wire, Cuban doesn't have much hope that any of the now 23 people contending for the Democratic presidential nomination have a real shot at taking down Donald Trump in 2020. The billionaire also doesn't have a very high opinion of most of their proposals, which he slammed as nothing but "headline porn."
During an interview with CNBC on Tuesday, Cuban was asked which Democratic candidate he believes could actually defeat Trump in 20202, Cuban answered "nobody right now" — even frontrunner former Vice President Joe Biden, whom Cuban said he likes and thinks is "smart" and could do a "decent job" as president
And who does Cuban think “could” take down Trump? Well, him… of course!
Cuban, who presents himself as a kind of entrepreneurial foil to Trump, was also asked if he would consider jumping into the 2020 race; the businessman offered a made-for-TV response.
“We'll see what happens. It would take the perfect storm for me to do it," Cuban told CNBC's "Halftime Report," then added teasingly: "There’s some things that could open the door, but I’m not projecting or predicting it right now."
According to the report, if Cuban were to run, he'd run as an Independent not a Democrat, as Starbucks' Howard Schultz has considered. The country is primed for a moderate candidate, said Cuban, saying he believes "there’s a real opportunity for somebody who is in the middle but has some charisma, has the ability to relate to both sides but is not a politician."
Again, say what you want about Cuban. But for someone as successful as Cuban has been in his career, he probably has a good sense of what’s going to work and what will not.
And Cuban sure doesn’t think these Democratic candidates will work against Trump in the next election!
