The Potential Of A Mark Cuban POTUS Run Has Fired Up President Trump

On Sunday, the New York Post reported that Steve Bannon, the White House chief strategist, wanted a list of potential 2020 Democratic Party challengers who might go up against President Donald Trump's run for re-election. One of the people who made the list is liberal billionaire Mark Cuban. The POTUS was quick to weigh in on that possible candidate.

President Trump tweeted on Sunday that Mark Cuban isn't a political threat to him. He tweeted on his personal Twitter account, "I know Mark Cuban well. He backed me big-time but I wasn't interested in taking all his calls. He’s not smart enough to run for president!"

Cuban responded ‘Lol,' then later added, "How soon they forget..." He included a comment he responded when President Trump remarked about Cuban's 'nasty' comments about him on CNN.

“You have a real chance to win. But to make it work you have to really dig in on the issues,” Cuban said. “You don’t have to bore people with details.”

“Everyone else is afraid of you. I like to challenge you,” Cuban told the now-POTUS back when he was a presidential candidate. “And like you said, I may go after that job some day and it could be against you. So it helps to get a head.”

When Cuban was asked what might have sparked the president's tweet, he responded, “I don’t know. But isn’t it better for all of us that he is tweeting rather than trying to govern?”

Cuban might actually be President Trump's worst nightmare, according to the White House report compiled for Bannon. Cuban, also a popular billionaire businessman and reality star, appeals to Republicans and independents, and is not nearly as feared by the left because he leans liberal on many social issues.

Cuban has encouraged businesses to protest the President and his unpopular actions. “Be an American citizen first. In the bigger scheme of things, our country benefits from peaceful activism a lot more than it benefits from one more shoe being sold, or one more basketball ticket being sold, for that matter,” he said.
