Steve Bannon Advised Mark Cuban to Run in 2020 as a Democrat

EXCERPT:

As he publicly flirts with a run for the presidency in 2020, Mark Cuban has also privately been in touch with potential allies and strategists to plot out a campaign.

The Dallas Mavericks owner confirmed that he has corresponded on multiple occasions since the 2016 election with Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump’s former chief strategist.

He downplayed the interactions in an email exchange with The Daily Beast, saying merely that he “texted with him a few time[s]” and that none, he believed, had “been more than one full sentence.” But according to four sources familiar with their conversations, the two have been in touch for months about a possible 2020 bid. Bannon, these sources say, has encouraged Cuban to run and to consider doing so as a Democrat, seeing it as a realistic path to a viable presidential run.

“They talk regularly,” said Sam Nunberg, a former Trump adviser who is close to Bannon. “They’re very similar. They have a lot of synergy there. Even when [Steve] went to work for Trump, Mark would be interviewed and say nice things about Steve.”

Cuban hasn’t been shy about entertaining the idea of making a run. At an event on Thursday in New York, he said that he if he were to do so, it would be independent of one of the two major political parties. He denied to The Daily Beast that Bannon had personally told him to run as a Democrat but he did note that the Breitbart chairman had suggested he do so to TMZ.

Bannon did not respond to requests for comment on this story. But his discussions with Cuban raise a number of intriguing possibilities about their respective political futures.

For Cuban, the question is whether his name identification, deep pockets, and formidable business background could allow him to run outside of the two major political parties or, perhaps, propel him to victory in a likely crowded field of Democratic candidates.

Democrats just don't get it. They have a losing platform. Their policies suck. Anybody who campaigns on their open-border, socialist, anti-White, criminals-are-victims agenda will lose the election. It doesn't matter if it's Mark Cuban, Mark Zuckerberg, Oprah, or Obama v2.0

It's the platform, stupid.

I think that'd be the point with Cuban. Much like Trump, he wouldn't run on the party's regular platform or conform to what their establishment would want. He'd likely run as a socially liberal (although actually moderate compared to most of the left these days) capitalist focused on jobs, taxes, and income rather than racial inequality, white privilege, and destroying the economy in the name of the environment.

I'd normally say he wouldn't go far in their party because of those views, but many said the same about Trump in the beginning of the primaries too.

You could be right. Cuban may not run on the party's regular platform. At this point we have no idea. I haven't heard him voice a policy position other than the fact that he's anti-Trump.

Same, although I do watch Shark Tank weekly and do like what I know of him from there. I'm pretty sure he's pro-abortion, so I would vote against him regardless of his other positions. He claims to be pro-marijuana and pro-privacy. He is a big fan of Ayn Rand's Fountainhead but also is in favor of things like bans on large sodas. He seems like a mixed bag for voters.

I think Cuban is an shameless attention whore. He's been hinting at running for president for a long time. He might run, but I doubt he can do what Trump has done.

Basically, he'd have to run as a less obnoxious Donald Trump. We already have a Trump. A lot of Trump's support comes from people who like his brazen, boasting style. Cuban doesn't have that. He's an insufferable jerk but he's smart enough to know he can't compete with Trump toe to toe. I'm sure he's also aware that the Democrat party in it's current state will never nominate him anyway. I think he'll be content pretending to be a 'concerned citizen' and a pain in my ass.
