Mark Cuban Announces Unexpected Twist to His 2020 Presidential Aspirations

Mark Cuban has been flirting with the idea of running for President for months now.
However, most assumed if he did run it would be as a Democrat.
Cuban has now announced he would instead run as a Republican and attempt to primary President Trump.
If this is the case, one must speculate if his run is even serious or if he would just be a tool of the left, looking to damage President Trump before a general election matchup with a Democrat.
Mark Cuban loves attention, and while he may have no chance at defeating Trump, he would likely enjoy the attention.
Billionaire businessman Mark Cuban revealed in a Fox News interview that if he were to run for president in 2020, it would “probably” be as a Republican.
Speaking to TMZ founder Harvey Levin on his show “Objectified,” Cuban was pressed on whether he will make a bid for the presidency, a subject he has teased to reporters for months.
“Considering? Yes,” the owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and star of ABC’s “Shark Tank” told Levin. “Made a decision? Far from.”
When asked if he’d run as a Democrat, Republican, or independent candidate, Cuban said, “probably Republican.”
“Because I think there is a place for someone who is socially a centrist but … very fiscally conservative,” Cuban said. “But I think there are better ways now to make the government smaller than the traditional Republican ways.”
He added that his family is split on the idea of him running for president.
“My kids love it, my wife hates it,” he said. “So that’s an influencing factor. My family is everything to me.”
The current political environment calls for someone “who can connect to people and relate to people at a base level and appreciate what they’re going through,” Cuban said, adding that he thinks he qualifies “on each of those.”
“Now, whether or not I’ll do it, it’s a big decision,” he said.
Levin asked Cuban on a scale of one to 10 how likely it is that the billionaire runs for president.
Cuban said it’s a “four.”
“If your wife says yes?” Levin asked.
“Five,” Cuban responded.
