Trump’s billionaire buddy Mark Cuban might not be his friend that much longer after what he said about the cheeto-faced candidate in an interview.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s real estate success has not necessarily yielded the wealth Trump claims, entrepreneur Mark Cuban told WABC’s “The Bernie and Sid Show” on Wednesday. He added that Trump is “not transparent enough for us to really know.”
“I’m not so sure Donald knows what he’s not good at. What he’s done well is put his name on big buildings, right? He appears to have done well putting his name through a licensing arrangement on hotels and buildings. He’s good at that. Now, whether or not that’s made him a billionaire, I don’t know,” the Dallas Mavericks owner and “Shark Tank” investor said.
…Cuban acknowledged Trump’s talent in real estate but questioned some of his other decisions. He said products like branded water bottles and steak reflect “desperation.”
Cuban said he asked Trump, “Are you that desperate for money?”
The Trump campaign and Trump Organization did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
You really have to wonder why a supposed billionaire needs to license his name for mere millions.
