Joe Biden shock: Billionaire Mark Cuban endorses ex-VP for president
Following a successful fundraising event with his former president Barack Obama, presumptive Democratic nominee and former vice president Joe Biden maintains his streak of victories in the polls and in endorsements. The latest public figure to endorse Biden is billionaire and Shark Tank host Mark Cuban.
Cuban voiced his support for Biden in an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News. The Shark Tank host, with a net worth of $4.3 billion, was pressed on whether he thinks the former vice president has what it takes to become the president of the United States, in which Cuban replied “One hundred percent. Absolutely.”
Cuban explained his reasons for backing Biden in the upcoming November elections. “Donald Trump doesn’t want to run a country. He wants to run a campaign. Joe Biden actually wants to run a country,” and cited the Affordable Care Act that was implemented during his two terms as vice president under the Obama administration as his greatest achievement.
The billionaire and Dallas Mavericks owner also touched on how the Trump administration is currently trying to repeal ACA, the lawsuit of which will be presented to the Supreme Court by the fall. They argued that the ACA makes it seem that having to buy health insurance is unconstitutional.
The Shark Tank host also noted Biden’s support for entrepreneurs, recalling an event the former vice president organized at the White House where he talked about his support for entrepreneurship. Cuban endorsed former first lady Hillary Clinton during the 2016 elections but was appointed in an advisory role by Trump during the Opening the Economy council.
Meanwhile, a report from the Economist Intelligence Unit via CNBC reveals that the odds of winning the November elections is strongly in favor of the former vice president. Experts have already projected that although the 2016 elections saw a close fight between Trump and Biden, the events that occurred over the recent months have shifted in favor of the former vice president.
“Trump’s response to both crises has further exposed his divisive style, which is unpopular among the independent voters who will be critical in deciding the election’s outcome.”
