I havent decided anything yet, Cuban told the Daily News. Well see what happens. It all comes down to how things play out. Its not something I feel like I have to do. ... But its something that if circumstances were right I would do.
Cuban criticized the Democratic party for what he sees as a group thats more focused on appealing to its base than independents and Republicans.
If you look at the Democrats right now, theres like a democratic gravity that pulls all the candidates to the same point, Cuban said. And its very difficult to show leadership in a situation like that because you cant truly lead if you have to find an equilibrium between being a true leader for the people of your country vs. getting elected in your primary.
None of those things are conducive to out-and-out leading the country.

He’s playing coy...........................
Mark thinks we voted for Trump because he’s a billionaire.
Another attention whore.
No, I think he believes a lot of people voted for Trump because they wanted to see what a non-politician could do. A businessman who was used to making decisions and leading. With Hillary so flawed, it became an interesting notion.
Now, in 2020, it remains to be seen if as many voters see Trump as flawed ala Hillary but also can’t stomach the extreme left of the “Free for All” party. If that happens, this could be another cycle for a 3rd party win.
I hope either Cuban or Starbux Guy runs.
It would make Trump a lock for the win.
Especially if the Dem nominee is one of the hard core socialist crew.
Go away, lowlife moron. You aren’t worth SPIT!
Cuban is extremely jealous of Trump.
But, if the fool runs, it will only help Trump.
You don’t think Cuban would syphon votes from Trump? Or do you just think he’d syphon more from the Dems? I don’t see it as a slam dunk. Though it could have a Perot effect where the winner comes in around 42% of the vote.
Mark Cuban is the shady businessman and woman-abuser that Dems think Trump is.
Jump in, Mark, the water’s fine!
Why do you use those terms for him? What makes him a lowlife and a moron? Dude is pretty smart if you ask me.
I think Trump has a strong base.
He would pull off a Clintonian plurality win.
I want Cuban to run as third party and Schultz and any other nitwit who is an attention seeker. Drains moderate Democrat votes into a black. Easier for Trump.
Kinda what I think. And that will probably be true of SBUX guy or Bloomberg if they run independently.
Mark Cuban of Girls Gone Wild Mark Cuban? And we think Clintoon is sleazy.
After he is re-elected Trump should start a third party. We need a third party and to put the republicans in third place, we just don’t need Cuban How about a Free Republic Party?
Didn't work in Sharknado, won't work in real life.
One of my frat bros played rugby with Cuban at Indiana Univ back in the late 70s. They are still good friends. He speaks highly of Cuban.
Cuban also has “me,too” issues because he let some of his NBA executives get away with a lot of sh!t.
