Mark Cuban thinks he could be the next president of the US5 min read
Billionaire Mark Cuban thinks he could be the next President Trump, and says he could use the commander-in-chief’s own party to do it. The Dallas Mavericks owner and reality show personality told Fox News Sunday night that if he runs for the White House he would do so as a Republican. He stated,
“I think there’s a place for somebody who’s socially a centrist but I’m very fiscally conservative.”
Cuban, who has evolved into a frequent critic of his fellow billionaire now in Washington, confirmed that he is looking into the idea of going into politics, and said that the chance he does so is about a four out of 10.
He further stated, “We’re going into an era where people want someone who comes up with solutions. I think we’re going into a time where you need somebody who can connect to people and relate to people at a base level and appreciate what they’re going through – and I think I qualify on each of those.”
Cuban is not the only person believed to be looking at a primary challenge to the president, with Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse often mentioned in such discussions. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg also prompted speculation about his own run with a visit to Iowa in the summer, though his potential political party is unclear.
