A Twit­ter war spurred be­tween Trump and Amer­i­can busi­ness­man and TV celebrity, Mark Cuban af­ter the lat­ter cau­tioned the CEOs in a news­pa­per ar­ti­cle “not to cozy up to Trump”, me­dia re­ports said. Ac­cord­ing to a re­port in Esquire on Sun­day, Cuban in Fort Worth Star-Tele­gram news­pa­per ad­vised CEOs on how to act dur­ing the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion. He cau­tioned them not to cozy up to Trump, even though the im­me­di­ate po­lit­i­cal pay­off could be tempt­ing. “Do what you think is right. Be an Amer­i­can ci­ti­zen first,” Cuban was quoted as say­ing. How­ever, these re­marks did not go well with Trump as he tweeted, ac­cus­ing Cuban of be­ing a dis­grun­tled for­mer sup­porter. “I know Mark Cuban well. He backed me big-time but I wasn’t in­ter­ested in tak­ing all of his calls. He’s not smart enough to run for pres­i­dent!” he tweeted. Cuban re­sponded by sim­ply writ­ing “LOL”. IANS
