Donald Trump is a professional troll.
During his short but exhausting presidential campaign, Trump has done his best to ruffle as many feathers as possible. This past weekend, he suggested Arizona senator and former GOP nominee John McCain was only portrayed as a war hero because he was “captured.” He refused to apologize after the fact, doubling down on his stance that McCain has done nothing to help veterans in his time as an elected official. He has also been doing his part to play up the wealth card, suggesting to some that he is worth over $10 billion.
Mavericks owner and all-around badass Mark Cuban took to his app Cyber Dust to dispel some of these claims and share some thoughts about The Donald.
From The Dallas Morning News:
So who wants me to talk about Donald Trump and his candidacy for President ?
I can’t resisit ! So if you don’t want to read about it, hit those dots in the upper right and mute me
It’s time !
Hey, Dusters, let’s talk Trump. So much to say that it can’t happen in one blast. But the first place to start is his net worth.
He has been bragging that he is worth north of ten billion dollars.
Ok. While’s it’s a big number, it’s not an important number. In fact it’s a play number.
Let’s say you own a painting that gets appraised at 10 billion dollars. That gives you a net worth of 10 billion. But that does not mean you have a lot of cash
In fact it’s possible to be worth billions, but not be able to pay your rent
How much cash does Donald have? We don’t know for sure. But we do know whatever cash he has, post his several corporate bankruptcies, he hates to spend it
And the one thing about the race for the Presidency is that it takes a lot of CASH
Not net worth. Cash. Cash. Cash
We have yet to see Trump spend much on building an organization, which. Is critical to getting votes. We have yet to see that he has raised money from supporters.
After all who feels the need to donate money to a guy who says he is worth 10 billion dollars?
It’s the Trump Conundrum. He is a Paper Tiger.
It’s very possible that he doesn’t have the cash himself and has bragged himself into a position where he can’t afford the cash it takes to run for President !
Trump is a “Paper Tiger,” and an embarrassment for the GOP. If this country was ever to see a billionaire president, give me Mark Cuban over Donald Trump any day of the week. .
