Cuban on Trump: ‘I Would Crush Him’

September 15th, 2015 3:23 PM

Businessman and reality TV star, Mark Cuban, seems to be jealous of the attention Donald Trump has received while campaigning for the GOP presidential nomination. In an email exchange with CNBC, Cuban discussed how presidential campaigning has changed and how he would structure his own campaign.

When he was asked whether he would run for president, he responded: “I get asked every day. It's a fun idea to toss around. If I ran as a Dem, I know I could beat Hillary Clinton. And if it was me vs. Trump, I would crush him. No doubt about it."

These are very strong assertions, but in a world where a candidate with no political experience and very few policy positions leads the GOP polling, anything is possible.

While Cuban said he has no plans to run for president, he said that his top five concern as a candidate would be: 1) income inequality, 2) college debt, 3) overly complex taxes, 4) cyber security and 5) broken equity markets.
