Appearing on Bakari Sellers‘ ViewPoint podcast on Tuesday, Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks and star of ABC’s Shark Tank, said he’s considering running for president:
SELLERS: I know that you were an active and vocal surrogate for Hillary Clinton — that's how we became associates and friends — and given the role that Congress could play in investigating the Trump administration, and your vocal opposition to the president, will we see you on the campaign trail in the midterms?
CUBAN: Probably not. Um, you know —
SELLERS: Mark, are you considering running for President of the United States?
CUBAN: Yes. Considering, yes. Ready to commit to it, no. I like to think of myself approaching it differently. I mean, I mentioned real briefly talking about health care; I mentioned real briefly talking about integrating equity into small business, and having an impact on tax law and tax reform. If I can come up with solutions that I think people can get behind and truly solve problems, then it makes perfect sense for me to run.
If it comes down to: Do I think I can win because I can convince more people to vote for me? then no, I won't run.
