Mark Cuban and Donald Trump are billionaire frenemies that always seem like they have something to say, whether it’s about business, the economy, or the social issue of the day.
However, during Trump’s fast-moving campaign, Cuban was questioned as to what he though of the controversial figure that we all know as The Donald.
In fine form, Mark Cuban expressed his support for Trump, even if he doesn’t agree with his policies all the time. Here’s a quote:
I don’t care what his actual positions are. I don’t care if he says the wrong thing. He says what’s on his mind. He gives honest answers rather than prepared answers. This is more important than anything any candidate has done in years. Trump has changed the game.
Up until Trump announced his candidacy the conventional wisdom was that you had to be a professional politician in order to run. You had to have a background that was politically scrubbed. In other words, smart people who didn’t live perfect lives could never run. Smart people who didn’t want their families put under the media spotlight wouldn’t run. The Donald is changing all of that. He has changed the game and for that he deserves a lot of credit.
Now maybe we will accept candidates warts and all and look at what they can do rather than what headlines they create. Congrats Donald.
In turn, Trump appreciated the support and offered his support for the Dallas Mavericks. What a guy!
