Billionaire investor and owner of The Dallas Mavericks Mark Cuban says he’s voting for Hillary Clinton and thinks you should too.
Cuban tweeted his support for the Democratic presidential nominee on Friday, vowing to do his “best to convince” everyone he knows to also vote for the former secretary of state in the November election.
. @_LaLas_Land I will vote for Hillary and do my best to convince every one I know to vote for Hillary. You should to

Cuban wrote the tweet in reply in response to a Twitter user who asked him if he planned to vote for Clinton or not at all, after the “Shark Tank” star posted a tweet about Donald Trump saying, “This guy should be commander in chief?”
Just last month, Cuban said on FOX Business that “there’s a good chance I’ll vote for Donald Trump” if Clinton picks Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren as her running mate. The former secretary of state ultimately chose Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine. Cuban also predicted that Clinton would win the presidential election in “a landslide.”
But it wasn’t that long ago that Cuban was fully backing the Republican presidential nominee. Trump hosted one of his largest campaign rallies last September at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, home to the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and the NHL’s Dallas Stars.
A couple months earlier, Cuban called the real estate mogul “the best thing to happen to politics in a long time.”
“I have to honestly say he is probably the best thing to happen to politics in a long time,” Cuban said in a statement last July on Cyber Dust, the private-messaging app he created.
“I don’t care what his actual positions are, I don’t care if he says the wrong thing,” he continued. “He says what’s on his mind. He gives honest answers rather than prepared answers. This is more important than anything any candidate has done in years.”
