Donald Trump has rubbed a lot of people the wrong way during his campaign. Many GOP leaders are begrudgingly backing Trump as the candidate solely because they don’t want Hillary to win. However, there is still a group of anti-Trump Republicans who want to make sure Trump doesn’t sniff a chance at the White House.
In an attempt to derail Donald’s chances, they have approached Mark Cuban to run in this year’s election.
Mark Cuban told The Washington Post that a group of conservative politicians have asked him to run as a third-party candidate in this year’s presidential election.
The band of Republican politicians, according to the Post, is attempting to block presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and believes that Cuban, the outspoken billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, would resonate with voters.
This isn’t a terrible idea when you think about it. Cuban is a savvy businessman. He went from broke at 27 to the billionaire that he is today all on his own, so he can resonate with the voters. Not only that, but he’s already bashed Hillary’s student debt proposal. Cuban is fiscally conservative and knows what the GOP needs to make it great again. The only downside to this proposal is that running as a third-party candidate would split votes.
Cuban told the leaders that he wouldn’t do it because there isn’t enough time to put together a proper campaign. However, he didn’t rule out the possibility of running again four years from now.
Asked by ESPN.com on Sunday if he would consider running for president four years from now, Cuban replied, “No comment.”
