Well… this is interesting. During a sit-down on Fox News Channel’s OBJECTified this weekend, Mark Cuban announced that, if Donald Trump attempts to run for re-election, he plans to challenge him in the primaries. Wow!
The billionaire, who is best known as the owner of the Dallas Mavericks and star of NBC’s Shark Tank, said he’d run as a Republican as long as he has his wife’s blessing. It is, after all, pretty hard on the whole family.
Everyone has to be ready for the fight which can be tough when you’re trying to raise kids (Cuban and his wife have three children ranging from seven to 14 years old). Plus, it would be a huge lifestyle change since they’d have to move to Washington, D.C. if Cuban won.
It is an interesting dynamic since Cuban initially supported Trump and even referred to him as “a friend” but, over time, things changed and Cuban even said he’d consider being Hillary Clinton’s running mate.
The businessman has a well-established history of charity work. For example, in 2003, Cuban he founded the Fallen Patriot Fund with the goal of helping families of U.S. military personnel killed or injured during the Iraq War.
