Mark Cuban 'considering' run for president

Mark Cuban 'considering' run for president”

In a recent interview on the Viewpoint podcast, hosted by former Democratic South Carolina state representative Bakari Sellers, The Dallas Mavericks owner was asked if he was considering a run at the US presidency.

The Mavericks owner said Trump might have put a bad taste in the voters' mouths, but seriously hinted at a Mark Cuban 2020 run.

"If I can come up with solutions that I think people can get behind and truly solve problems, then it makes ideal sense for me to run", Cuban said, specifically mentioning his interest in working on health care and tax reform.

Cuban has been highly critical of Donald Trump in the past, rating him a "C-minus" as commander-in-chief back in May, as well as calling him a "Zoolander president" in March. But he said he would not divest from personal business interests if he were elected, saying Trump has only faced problems with his business possessions because he "isn't transparent about them".

"I love the guy because he's the only human being who trolls himself and doesn't know it", Cuban told The Dallas Morning News earlier this year. "My goal is always to find a solution".

Cuban added he'd have "no problem" releasing his tax returns - something that Trump has yet to do.

In the NBA, there's a rule that requires players to stand during the anthem, and those who don't will be fined by the association.

Ultimately, Cuban said he still hasn't decided whether to run for office.

During the 2016 presidential election, he endorsed Hillary Clinton and was a vocal critic of Trump, though he had previously expressed interest in joining both Clinton's and Trump's tickets as vice president.

But later, Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told CNN that Flowers was never invited.
