Billionaire Mark Cuban has disclosed that he’s “seriously considering” running for president in 2020. The Shark Tank star and serial entrepreneur has been a public opponent of President Trump’s and has taken to Twitter on several occasions to vent about the controversial president.
Cuban has stated he will probably run as a Republican candidate in direct opposition to Trump. When pressed on why he would choose to run for the GOP he replied:
“I think there’s a place for somebody who is socially a centrist, but I’m very fiscally conservative,”
He backed Hillary Clinton in 2016, but now sees himself as more of a Republican candidate. He has toyed with the idea of running for president previously and now seems to insinuate that it is the perfect time to run. He certainly has a big profile and with many in the party happy to turn against the president, it seems that he would have more than a fair chance.
Unfortunately, because Trump won, it seems like the presidency has turned into a popularity contest that attracts the attention of those with a public profile. The White House is now the setting of a bad reality show.
