Billionaire Mark Cuban left open the possibility of running for president, telling CNBC on Tuesday, “We’ll see.”

Cuban said that some things would need to happen for him to be motivated to run in 2020, Mark Cuban and if he did, it would be as an independent.

“We’ll see what happens. It would take the perfect storm for me to do it,” he said. “There’s some things that could open the door, but I’m not projecting or predicting it right now.”

“I still think there’s a real opportunity for somebody who is in the middle but has some charisma, has the ability to relate to both sides but is not a politician. The reality is people don’t trust politicians,” Cuban said in the telephone interview.

When asked who on the Democratic side has the best chance of winning, Cuban said “nobody right now.” “If you look at why people voted for Donald Trump, in my opinion, first and foremost it was because he wasn’t a politician. 

Cuban has the correct analysis here on the current state of the Democratic field (outside of long shot Tulsi Gabbard).

But it remains to be seen what his positions would be to determine if he would be an interesting candidate to support.
