Just days after serious reports emerged of the possibility that Oprah may make a run for the White House in 2020, Shark Tank star and owner of the Dallas Mavericks Mark Cuban revealed in an interview that he’s ‘considering’ running as well.
Cuban was a vocal supporter of then-candidate Donald Trump but later switched his support to Hillary Clinton.
Though he’s technically an Independent, he would almost certainly run as a Democrat.
And if he does, that makes at least three television celebrities who’ve indicated interest in running on the Democrat side against President Trump.
If the trend holds, the leader of the free world after 2020 will be someone who reached stardom largely in Hollywood, regardless of the results. Weird.
Here’s more from Redstate…
Billionaire and Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban said he is “considering” running for the highest office in the land come 2020, according to audio obtained by the Free Beacon.
During an interview on former Democratic South Carolina state representative Bakari Sellers’ podcast, ViewPoint, Sellers asked Cuban if he — an outspoken opponent of Trump’s — would run in the 2018 midterms.
“Probably not,” answered Cuban.
Sellers quickly cut to the more pressing question.
“Mark, are you considering running for president of the United States?” Sellers asked.
“Yes. Considering, yes,” Cuban said. “Ready to commit to it, no.”
Cuban said he would focus on coming up with real solutions for tax reform, and helping businesses grow, but he would not run if it meant he could just win a popularity contest.
“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,” Cuban said.
