Mark Cuban is strongly considering a run for President of the United States in 2020 as a third party candidate.
“I haven’t decided anything yet. We’ll see what happens. It all comes down to how things play out,” Cuban said. “It’s not something I feel like I have to do.
“There’s a lot of uncertainty with what’s going on with the Mueller report, there’s a lot of things that have to be figured out before we know how 2020 is going to play out.
“But it’s something that if circumstances were right I would do.”
Cuban has been outspoken against Donald Trump, a figure he has been compared to in the past as a celebrity businessman.
“If you look at the Democrats right now, there’s like a democratic gravity that pulls all the candidates to the same point," said Cuban. "And it’s very difficult to show leadership in a situation like that because you can’t truly lead if you have to find an equilibrium between being a true leader for the people of your country vs. getting elected in your primary. None of those things are conducive to out-and-out leading the country.
“You can see it right now with the Democrats.
“They’re pushing hard for Democratic votes, but they’re doing nothing to try to bring Independent and Republican voters aboard,” Cuban said.
Cuban believes Trump's appeal is because he's not a politician.
“It really would take the exact right set of circumstances,” Cuban said.
Cuban had taken a lower profile since a report broke in February 2018 of sexual harassment within the Mavericks' organization. The Mavericks and Cuban were sanctioned in September 2018 with Cuban donating $10 million to women's groups.
