Mark Cuban Reveals Who He'd Vote for if Election Were Held Today

"Fortunately, it's not today and so I have six months. But, I'd probably say..."

Billionaire Mark Cuban criticized Donald Trump in a CNN interview Monday evening, revealing that if the election were held today he would cast his vote for Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.

"Fortunately, it's not today and so I have six months," Cuban said, in response to a question from host Erin Burnett. "But I'd probably say, right now, it'd be Hillary because the Devil you know is better than the Devil you don't know."

"I know what Hillary's positions are. I can go to Hillary's websites and there is spreadsheets, there is depth, there is analysis, there is details," he added. "I can go to Donald's website, which I have — he lists issues, he lists top line things he'd like to do, but he doesn't say how he's going to get there."

Cuban, who dismissed the idea of running on a third party ticket, said that he had a lot of respect for Trump, but suggested he was disappointed in the lack of interest he has shown for certain things.

"To be the president of the United States, you have to make an investment, you have to be committed to always learning. ... Donald just hasn't done that," Cuban said. "I mean, he won't even learn how to send emails."

"I mean, there are just certain things that I think have to happen to have someone lead this country," the billionaire added. "And when Donald first got into the race, I was really excited. He definitely changed the game. He deserves credit for that."

Cuban said that U.S. politics "needed a change," but argued he "expected" Trump to "approach it a lot differently than he has."

In the interview, the Dallas Mavericks owner argued Trump's election could "turn Wall Street up and down" because of the uncertainty it would create in the market. He warned that the stock market could drop more than 20 percent if Trump does not rollout "concrete" policy proposals.
