Donald Trump Rumors
So on Thursday, Business Insider reached out to Cuban — via his Cyber Dust app — to ask if he would consider running for vice president if asked by Trump, a fellow billionaire. “Would I consider?” Cuban responded. “Yes.” However, the “Shark Tank” star and outspoken investor said he would probably not end up accepting the hypothetical offer. “Would I do it. Probably not,” he continued. “I’m not cut out for politics. At least [the] way they are now. Maybe in the future if Trump truly impacts how the game is played.”
Cuban took to his Cyber Dust messaging app this week to congratulate Trump, referring to the Republican presidential candidate as “probably the best thing to happen to politics in a long, long time.” “I don’t care what his actual positions are,” Cuban wrote. “I don’t care if he says the wrong thing. He says what’s on his mind. He gives honest answers rather than prepared answers. This is more important than anything any candidate has done in years.”
Trump issued a tweet to his more than 3 million Twitter followers, thanking Cuban for the “nice words.” Trump added that he was rapidly becoming a Dallas Mavericks fan. “I think people are tired of politics as usual,” Cuban told ESPN Radio last week. “We’re tired of everything being scripted, we’re tired of every comment being politically correct. And, you know, even though Donald has to spend a lot of time pulling not just his foot but the toenails and the stuff that falls off his cuticles out of his mouth, at least it’s refreshing to have somebody who is just gonna say what’s on their mind and give an honest, if not insensitive, response to a question. To me, it’s great.” So would Cuban vote for Trump? “No, but I don’t know that I’d vote for any of the other 14 candidates and I don’t know that I’d vote for the Democratic candidates right now either,” Cuban said.
Cuban said the wealth gap in the U.S. needs to be addressed because it has a negative impact on both the rich and the poor. “It’s creating a risk factor that hurts everybody,” he said. “If you have to worry about whether or not there’s going to be riots or instability where your businesses are, that’s an unquantifiable risk.”
Mark Cuban: Hey, Dusters, let’s talk Trump. So much to say that it can’t happen in one blast. But the first place to start is his net worth. He has been bragging that he is worth north of ten billion dollars. Ok. While’s it’s a big number, it’s not an important number. In fact it’s a play number. Let’s say you own a painting that gets appraised at 10 billion dollars. That gives you a net worth of 10 billion. But that does not mean you have a lot of cash In fact it’s possible to be worth billions, but not be able to pay your rent How much cash does Donald have? We don’t know for sure. But we do know whatever cash he has, post his several corporate bankruptcies, he hates to spend it
