“I never would have never considered it prior to a month ago, now things are changing rapidly and dramatically,” he said on “Fox News Sunday” when asked if he was serious that he may consider running in November. 

“I’m not saying no, but it's not something I’m actively pursuing,” Cuban added. “I’m just keeping the door open.”

Cuban told Axios earlier this month he will “keep an open mind” but doubted that he would run for the White House this year. 

On Sunday, Cuban said he still does not anticipate running in the fall but noted that things could change in the next few months.

“You just never know. This is not something we've seen ever, this is obviously a unique set of circumstances, you just don’t know what could happen between now and November,” Cuban said.
