Billionaire investor Mark Cuban enthusiastically endorsed presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden and mocked President Donald Trump during an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show, telling the Fox host the reason he supports Biden is very simple:
“Donald Trump doesn’t want to run a country. He wants to run a campaign. Joe Biden actually wants to run a country.”
Cuban’s endorsement came on the same day that a New York Times-Sienna College poll was released which showed Biden with a healthy 14-point lead over the incumbent president, 50-36 percent.
Hannity asked Cuban about Biden:
“Do you believe that he has the strength, the stamina, the mental acuity, the alertness to be taking on what is the toughest job in the world, being the president of the United States? Do you in your heart believe he does?”
The owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks responded:
“One hundred percent. Absolutely.”
That led Hannity to change tactics, asking:
“Tell me what Joe has done that you were proud of that qualifies him to be president after 50 years [in public life].”
But Cuban was more than ready for the query, remarking:
“I think the ACA [Affordable Care Act] is easily the biggest accomplishment and it’s unfortunate Trump is trying to dismantle it.”
Health care will indeed be one of the major issues in the election. And as Cuban noted, Trump has done nothing on the issue other than trying to rip health insurance away from tens of millions of Americans even though he has no alternative to the ACA.
Trump will also be facing questions about the way he’s fumbled the federal response to COVID-19 and the fact that 40 million Americans remain unemployed. Just this week, the White House announced it would be ending all federal funding of testing for the novel coronavirus, meaning that states will have to try and come up with millions if they want to find out how many of their residents are infected.
