Billionaire investor Mark Cuban said on the Fox Business Network Wednesday that he was pleased with Donald Trump becoming the Republican Party's presumptive nominee, but predicted the real estate mogul would "run a Seinfeld campaign" that will be "about nothing."

“I think it’s great," he said. "I was an anybody but [Ted] Cruz guy. I like Donald."

Cuban told host Neil Cavuto that he thinks Trump's likely nomination "shows how tribal the United States has become."

"I don’t even think we are partisan anymore, I think we’re tribal," he said. "And Donald has got that whole what about me tribe running behind him and he’s excited them to come out and vote for him and it’s going to make for an interesting election.”

The billionaire, however, fell short of endorsing Trump. When asked if he would vote for Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton or Trump, Cuban said he had not made a decision.

“I really don’t know yet," he said. "I think there are things that are positive about Donald and I think there are things that are positive about Hillary and the same with the negative side."

"I think there is a lot of basketball to be played yet and it’s going to be really interesting how Hillary responds to Donald," the Dallas Mavericks owner added. "You know, if Hillary stays Hillary, I think it really hurts her and really helps Donald. If Hillary can really make it tough on Donald to just do the Seinfeld campaign then I think she’s got a better chance.”
