Just in case there weren’t enough billionaire reality TV stars running in the 2016 presidential race, there’s one more willing to jump in. In an interview for this Sunday’s “Meet the Press” released on Friday, entrepreneur and “Shark Tank” star Mark Cuban said he would “absolutely” listen to Hillary Clinton about running as her vice president.
The owner of the Dallas Mavericks recently joked he would be Clinton’s running mate if he could “throw bombs” at Trump.
But it seems the idea must have sunk in because now Cuban is dead serious about his prospects. So serious that he’s got some conditions for the former secretary of state and likely Democratic presidential nominee.
“If she’s willing to listen, if she’s willing to hear other sides of things, then I’m wide open to discussing it,” Cuban said, adding that if she wanted him to join the ticket, “she would have to go more to center.”
Cuban also said he appreciated Clinton’s “thought-out proposals, that’s a good thing, because at least we get to see exactly where she stands.”
Whether Clinton is mulling over his terms, is a whole other question.
The full interview with Mark Cuban will air Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” You can watch a clip of it in the video above.
