Donald Trump Rumors
The always outspoken Trump let Abdul-Jabbar know how he felt about it, writing him a blistering note. Here’s the full text of the letter: Dear Kareem, Now I know why the press always treated you so badly — they couldn’t stand you. The fact is that you don’t have a clue about life and what has to be done to make America great again! Best wishes, Donald Trump
This morning, an essay of mine was published titled, “This is the Difference Between Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders.” Trump’s response to my piece is the best, though inelegant, support for my claims. Here again, he attacks a journalist who disagrees with him, not by disputing the points made but by hurling schoolyard insults such as “nobody likes you.” Look behind the nasty invective and you find an assault on the Constitution in the effort to silence the press through intimidation.

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.”
