Dallas Mavericks owner and billionaire Mark Cuban says he is “considering” running for president.

Cuban was asked on the Viewpoint podcast by former state lawmaker Bakari Sellers (D-S.C.) about running, according to the Free Beacon.

“Mark, are you considering running for president of the United States?” Sellers asked.


“Yes. Considering, yes,” Cuban replied. “Ready to commit to it, no.”

Cuban said that if he felt he could come up with solutions to issues like tax reform, a presidential campaign would make “perfect sense.”

“If it comes down to, ‘Do I think I can win because I can convince more people to vote for me?’ Then no, I won’t run,” Cuban said.

He added that he likely wouldn’t be on the campaign trail during the 2018 midterm elections.

Cuban has repeatedly floated the idea of a presidential bid against Trump. The two have feuded in the past, though Cuban initially said he would consider being Trump’s running mate.

A poll from Public Policy Polling in August showed Cuban, running as a Democrat, defeating Trump in a hypothetical 2020 presidential election.
