"Nobody right now," Cuban said when asked which candidate has the best chance of dashing the president's re-election hopes.
“Politicians are the least trusted of every profession,” the owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks told CNBC. “If you look at why people voted for Donald Trump, in my opinion, first and foremost it was because he wasn’t a politician.”
Cuban also called the candidates’ campaign proposals “headline porn,” claiming none of the policies would be legislatively viable.
He also admitted he’s considering running for president himself but isn’t planning on it soon.
“It would take the perfect storm for me to do it,” he said.
Vice President Joe Biden is “smart” and “could do a decent job,” Cuban said but confessed that no candidate stands out to him.
Cuban said if he did run it would be as an Independent. He previously mulled running during the 2016 election, claiming he could beat both Hillary Clinton and Trump, according to CNBC.
Billionaire Howard Schultz says he is also considering an independent run for president.
