CUBAN’S AS­PI­RA­TIONS

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Bil­lion­aire busi­ness­man, re­al­ity TV host and Dal­las Mav­er­icks owner Mark Cuban has his eye on a pres­i­den­tial run in 2020 — that is, if the man has a plan.

“Is there a chance I am talk­ing to the 46th pres­i­dent of the United States,” talk ra­dio host Rich Eisen asked Mr. Cuban in a re­cent in­ter­view.

“I wouldn’t put it high on my list of prob­a­bil­i­ties but we’ll see what hap­pens. I’ve got a lot of time to de­cide. It’s flat­ter­ing that peo­ple ask me about it, and I ap­pre­ci­ate it, and there’s def­i­nitely a lead­er­ship void in this coun­try. But I’m not jump­ing in,” replied Mr. Cuban. “You don’t try and pre­tend to be a politi­cian. You have to have so­lu­tions. I am work­ing on some projects, and if I think they can turn into so­lu­tions, then yeah, I’ll do it. If I don’t think I have the right an­swers, then I won’t do it.”
