Billionaire Mark Cuban met with Chris Cuomo on CNN to discuss Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s campaign.
The investment entrepreneur and outspoken owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks has been playing both parties in the media and throwing out feelers in what some have said are the hopes he could be named as a vice presidential pick for either one of the candidates.
At first, it seemed he wanted to work with Trump, but then he said he’d have to vote for Clinton if the election were held in May instead of November. Now he’s saying Clinton will likely get nothing done if she’s elected president.
Cuban said he was more concerned with what the candidates could do “after they get elected” and less concerned with who they are. Cuban said the current gridlock that exists in Washington is made possible by the Republicans controlling both the U.S. House of Representatives as well as the U.S. Senate. Therefore, President Obama hasn’t been able to get much done by legislation, only by executive order.
Cuban said in a Clinton presidency, “If we think gridlock is bad now, it’s going to be a thousand times worse.”
The billionaire Texan said Clinton’s campaign has dehumanized her by lifting her up and making her “a non-human” and she’ll have to “humanize herself” again and reach across the aisles of Congress to be able to get any of her programs and proposals passed by Congress.
“If I had to make an argument for Donald Trump, I think right now he would do a better job of crossing the aisle and reducing gridlock than Senator Clinton would,” Cuban said. His comments leave open the possibility the pair of billionaires could join hands to run as a Trump/Cuban ticket.
