“We’ll see what happens. Look, I’ve said it many times, it would take the perfect storm for me to do it…”

Billionaire Mark Cuban did not appear ready to close the door on possibly running for president in 2020 during an interview on CNBC on Wednesday, adding that he does not think any of the Democratic presidential candidates could defeat President Trump in 2020.

CNBC’s Scott Wapner asked Cuban whether he was going to run for president.

“You haven’t heard anything from me for a reason, and we’ll keep it that way,” Cuban said.

Wapner followed up by asking Cuban if he was still considering a presidential run 2020.

“We’ll see what happens. Look, I’ve said it many times, it would take the perfect storm for me to do it,” Cuban said. “There’s some things that could open the door, but I’m not projecting or predicting it right now.”

Wapner then asked Cuban which Democratic candidate currently running for president has the best chance of defeating Trump in the general election.

“Nobody right now. I think what people are missing is if you look at why people voted for Donald Trump, in my opinion, it was because he – first and foremost – he wasn’t a politician,” Cuban said. “If you look at the Democratic field, it’s all politicians.”

Wapner asked Cuban whether he would run for president as a Democrat.

“No, absolutely not. I’d run as an independent most likely,” Cuban said. “I still think there’s a real opportunity for somebody who is in the middle but has some charisma, has the ability to relate to both sides, but is not a politician. The reality is people don’t trust politicians.”

Cuban then blasted the Democratic presidential candidates’ policy proposals as nothing more than “headline porn to get attention.”

“I don’t even think they believe what they’re proposing is passable,” Cuban said.
