Since Donald Trump emerged as a candidate for president of the United States, people have been doing everything possible to make sure that he doesn’t succeed Barack Obama in our presidential lineage. Some have even attempted to find an independent candidate to run so that Trump can’t walk into the White House. Mark Cuban, the Dallas Mavericks owner and the incredibly outspoken media mogul, was someone whose name came up.
NBC’s Chuck Todd was told by Cuban that he would “absolutely” consider being Hillary Clinton’s vice president if he was asked. He then went on to say that Clinton “would have to go more to center,” because “Senator [Bernie] Sanders has dragged her a little bit too far left,” on certain economic issues.
Cuban wrote in an email to CNN Money that “it would have been fun to run against Donald,” which came shortly after Mark said he would “put him (Trump) in his place.”
Although he’s open to joining forces with Clinton, he doesn’t see it happening because of how deep into the election we are. Moreover, it would be incredibly time-consuming for Cuban to join office and time is an asset he simply doesn’t have.
