Mark Cuban endorses Biden on Hannity: He ‘actually wants to run a country’

Mark Cuban told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he will vote for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden over President Trump in November, arguing that Trump “only wants to run a campaign” while Biden “wants to run a country.”

The endorsement comes as Biden continues to expand his lead over the incumbent in recent polling, including a New York Times-Sienna College national poll finding the former vice president enjoying a 14-point edge, 50 percent to 36 percent.

“Donald Trump doesn’t want to run a country. He wants to run a campaign,” Cuban told Hannity on Tuesday night. “Joe Biden actually wants to run a country.”

“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?” Hannity asked. “Do you in your heart believe he does?”

“One hundred percent. Absolutely,” Cuban replied.

“Tell me what Joe has done that you were proud of that qualifies him to be president after 50 years [in public life],” Hannity later asked, noting Biden was vice president for eight years before Trump took office.

“I think the ACA [Affordable Care Act] is easily the biggest accomplishment and it’s unfortunate Trump is trying to dismantle it,” Cuban, the billionaire star of “Shark Tank” and owner of the Dallas Mavericks, responded.

The Trump administration is supporting a lawsuit against the health care law that the Supreme Court will consider in the fall. The lawsuit argues that the law’s mandate that people buy insurance is unconstitutional because Congress in the 2017 tax-cut bill repealed the financial penalty associated with not buying health insurance. 

Cuban supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election but agreed to serve in an advisory role on Trump’s “opening our country” economic council in April prior to many businesses reopening amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
