“[Trump] had a really good chance to be different and really have a chance to change things, but he doesn’t do the work. He’s lazy… I was asked by a couple Senators to start a third party run, but if I had done that, the way the electoral college works, if I had won any states it would have gone to the Republican congress and they would’ve voted for Trump.”
Cuban first began expressing his concerns about the Republican nominee in the beginning of the summer. The “Shark Tank” star first went into detail about his relationship with Donald during the SkyBridge Alternatives conference in May:
“There’s that guy who’ll walk into the bar and say anything to get laid.That’s Donald Trump right now to a T. But it’s all of us who are going to get fucked… We go way back, and it’s a love-hate relationship… Everybody’s got that friend that you just shake your head at. He’s that guy who’d get drunk and fall over all the time, or just says dumb shit all the time, but he’s your friend… Being empathetic is one thing, and that’s good, but given the office he’s running for, trying to come up with a solution is even more important. And I don’t think he’s there yet.”
If Cuban and Trump were really friends before, I don’t think it’s true anymore. Recently, Cuban has dedicated a lot of his social media presence to analyzing this year’s GOP candidate:
“Those of us who don’t want @realDonaldTrump to be POTUS have to be brutally honest with @HillaryClinton and her campaign. @HillaryClinton marketing of herself is awful. It’s straight out of 1995. It’s not newsfeed or social media literate at all. Her marketing message needs to be simplified. She needs to tell people why they should vote for her in one short sentence or less.
Her opponents have spent years dehumanizing @HillaryClinton. She is the devil and a criminal to them. The only way to combat that is to go into enemy territory and do 5 interviews a day on @FoxNews. That’s the only way to become a real person to trump fans. Trump won’t kiss babies and shake hands. He won’t sit down with small business and offer help. You can connect by doing both.
@realDonaldTrump has done a better job using real people, non politicians as surrogates. @HillaryClinton has failed in this area. @HillaryClinton needs to find as many social media influencers and real people to use their platforms and tv to connect to the undecided.
winning this election is not about Trump Its about @HillaryClinton ability to become a real person who voters trust to lead this country.”
