Mark Cuban considers running for president in 2020

Back in 2015, Mark Cuban made a statement saying he could beat both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the election for presidency. He now claims he is planning to run for presidency in 2020, according to Fox News.

Cuban is the owner of the Dallas Mavericks and a billionaire. He spoke about a possible run while talking with former South Carolina State Rep. Bakari Sellers on "The Viewpoint" and then talked more about it while talking to CNBC.

Cuban told Sellers that economic inequality, health care, artificial intelligence, and entrepreneurship are important to him. He stated on the podcast that he had “no problem with healthcare being a right,” is “not a fan of net neutrality,” and wants to raise taxes on “wealthy people like himself.”

Even though this idea might be appealing to most people, he said that there is a “90 percent chance that he won’t run.”

“I would say the odds are extremely against it because my wife would divorce me,” Cuban wrote to CNBC in an email exchange. “It‘s more a family issue than any other issue.”
