Share

Billionaire businessman Mark Cuban took to Twitter on Saturday to reveal who he would vote for ahead of President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

Hours after rapper Kanye West announced he is running for president, Cuban said he would vote for him before he would vote for Trump.

Cuban tweeted, “If there was Rank Choice voting available and [Kanye West] was on the ballot with [Joe Biden] and [Donald Trump] I would have [Kanye West] ahead of [Donald Trump].”

“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States!” West said.

Cuban was not the only one expressing support for West.

Elon Musk, chief executive officer of Tesla, issued a tweet showing support for West.

“You have my full support!” Musk said.

West previously hinted at his support for Trump during an April interview with GQ Magazine, as IJR previously reported.

This is not the first time Cuban said he is not going to vote for Trump.

Cuban officially endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on June 23 during an appearance on Fox News, as IJR previously reported.

He discussed his concerns he has with Trump.

According to Cuban, Trump is more focused on winning his political campaign than he is with actually running the country.

He also argued Trump is focusing on dismantling the Affordable Care Act without proposing a viable alternative.

Cuban doubled down on his support of Biden during an appearance on “The View” on Wednesday, as IJR previously reported.

“I think Joe has got the qualities that this country needs right now,” Cuban said.

Biden continues to garner support and endorsements.

According to The New York Times/Siena College survey, Biden is receiving more support in key voting areas where he previously lagged.
