President Donald Trump calls out Mavericks owner Mark Cuban on Twitter
Do you enjoy attention-hungry billionaires feuding?
If so, I have just the tweets for you.
President Donald Trump lashed out at Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, because this is what the thin-skinned Trump does. He praises his supporters and slams his critics.
I know Mark Cuban well. He backed me big-time but I wasn't interested in taking all of his calls.He's not smart enough to run for president!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 12, 2017
The White House is already tracking which Democrats could challenge President Trump in 2020 and Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand aren’t on the list, sources told The Post.Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, asked consultants to scour the backgrounds of four outspoken Democrats — Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown, Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, two sources close to the administration said.
But the White House’s “biggest fear” is that Cuban, a billionaire businessman, would run because he can appeal to Republicans and independents, the sources said.
“He’s not a typical candidate,” the second insider said. “He appeals to a lot of people the same way Trump did.”“If you believe in the Trump revolution, you can believe a candidate like Mark Cuban could win an election,” the source added. “And Mark is the kind of guy who would drop half a billion dollars of his own money on the race.”
I have a hunch: Voters will not be as attracted to Trump or Trump-like candidates in 2020 as they were in 2016.
