Possible Mark Cuban POTUS Run Has President Trump All Fired Up

President Donald Trump's fellow billionaire businessman-turned-reality star could be a formidable opponent in the 2020 election. At least, according to a list compiled by White House chief strategist Steve Bannon. When the list was made public by the New York Post, the POTUS was quick to take a dig at Cuban.

Mark Cuban has always said he would like to be a Republican, because he does agree with smaller government and fiscal conservativism. However, the wealthy entrepreneur leans liberal on social issues, which is why he turned his back on Donald Trump in the 2016 election and supported Hillary Clinton.

President Trump, apparently, didn't get the memo. He thinks Cuban was supporting him. He also thinks Cuban lacks the brains for public office. “I know Mark Cuban well. He backed me big-time but I wasn’t interested in taking all of his calls,” Trump said Sunday in yet another confrontational tweet. “He’s not smart enough to run for president!”

Cuban only responded at first with an ‘LOL,' but later had more to say. He posted a message he wrote to the POTUS after Cuban appeared on CNN in 2016 and railed against the then-presidential candidate.

"Once you got past Cruz I really hoped you would dig into the issues," Cuban once wrote to Trump in an email, which he posted a screen shot of two Twitter. "You have a real chance to win... But to make it work you have to really dig in on the issues."

Cuban then urged Trump to consider things like the failing IPO companies, and suggested the then-GOP candidate Trump was getting bad advice. "I get that a big part of your base doesn't care about issue details, but to be President, to be this close, you have to dig in and know your sh-t," Cuban explained to Trump. "... Everyone else is afraid of you. I like to challenge you."

Cuban added, "I may go after that job some day and it could be against you. So it helps to get [ahead]!"

Because of his liberal-leanings on social issues, but his conservative leanings on other issues, Cuban could definitely pose a threat if he chose to run against Trump as an independent in 2020. He is popular with voters across the aisle with his Libertarian leanings. According to White House sources, reports the New York Post, Cuban could be the Trump administration's 'biggest fear.'
