‘This Country Needs Solutions’ Not ‘Headline Porn’: Mark Cuban Says There’s a ‘Good Chance’ He’ll Back Trump if Clinton Chooses This Running Mate

“The more we deal with labels than solutions, the bigger our problems get.”

Billionaire reality-TV personality Mark Cuban has had no shortage of criticism for billionaire reality-TV personality Donald Trump — even going so far as suggesting the presumptive Republican nominee is a mere millionaire.

But Cuban may well be willing to put his differences with Trump aside should Hillary Clinton select Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren as her running mate on the Democratic ticket.

Mark Cuban, Dallas Mavericks NBA basketball team owner and business man, gives a victory sign outside the federal courthouse after a verdict in his inside trading trial in Dallas, Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2013. Jurors said that billionaire Mark Cuban did not commit insider-trading when he sold his shares in an Internet company in 2004 after learning of a development that would dilute the value of his investment. The jury in federal court found that the SEC failed to prove several key elements of its case, including that Cuban traded on nonpublic information. (AP)AP

The Dallas Mavericks owner — who has previously said that in a race between Clinton and Trump he would vote for Clinton — told Fox Business’ “Varney & Co.” guest host Ashley Webster that “there’s a good chance I’d vote for Donald Trump” should the uber-progressive Warren appear on the ballot with the former secretary of state.

Cuban, reacting to Webster's assertion that a Clinton-Warren ticket “would really pull the Democratic Party way to the left,” said he wants the election to be “more center.”

“This country needs solutions," he said. "We don’t need headline porn.”

“We don’t need people talking about playing to progressives, playing to conservatives,” Cuban continued. “The more we deal with labels than solutions, the bigger our problems get.”

He went on to blast the “tribalism” of American politics, saying that because of it, “we’re not able to do anything — and that’s got to change.”

“Elizabeth Warren has accomplished a lot in her life, but taking it that far left would be a huge mistake,” Cuban said.

Perhaps the answer is to have Cuban on the ticket.

When Webster asked Cuban during the interview if he’d be willing to be Trump’s running mate, Cuban — a self-described independent — replied, “I’d be VP for either candidate.”

This wasn’t the first time Cuban has made public his willingness to discuss being Clinton’s pick for the ticket. He told NBC’s Chuck Todd during a May taping of “Meet the Press” that he “absolutely” would listen to the former first lady if she came to him about running with her.
