At 8:30 am on Sunday, February 12, President Trump decided to get into an unprompted twitter war
with another billionaire.
One hour later, Cuban sent out his first reply:
Now, this whole situation is deeply troubling for many reasons, but I think the The New York Times
said it best:
“The morning after North Korea launched a ballistic missile into the sea, apparently to test President Trump’s resolve in his first days in office, the new commander in chief wanted to make one thing very clear to the world: Mark Cuban, the billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner, was not smart enough to have his job.”
We all know there are clearly more important things for the President to focus on right now, so why did Trump choose to send this message now?
Honestly, no one’s really sure. Personally, I’m assuming one of his advisors said he needed to comment on the “Cuban situation
“, and Trump just immediately assumed they were talking about Mark… The Dallas Mavericks’ owner, however, has a different theory.
“Someone close to [President Trump] told me it was a NYPost
article saying I was a 2020 threat. That’s all I know.”
Basically, Cuban thinks that Trump is impulsive, that his policies are not well thought out and that he projects a bad image of Americans to the rest of the world. Cuban has also claimed that President Trump is nowhere near as rich as he claims to be. On the other hand, President Trump believes
that he is “very rich”, “would be the best for women”, “was always the best athlete” and has “a great relationship with the blacks”.
Which one of them is right? You be the judge.
