Donald Trump Can’t Fund His Campaign And Mark Cuban Is Tweeting About It

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is casting serious doubt on whether presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump is as rich as he claims.

True to his brash personality, the billionaire even had the gumption to tag Donald Trump in a tweet where he wrote, “If @realDonaldTrump were fractionally as rich as he says he is, he would write a $200mm check to propel his campaign. He doesn’t have the cash.”

He then went on to tweet a list scenarios involving Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

1) I expect @realDonaldTrump to try to calm down. He doesn’t have the cash to fund his campaign, he needs to appease donors quickly

2) he had less than 165mm in cash and falling for a campaign that will cost 750mm or more. He will have to grovel for that cash and will

3) the real fun/drama will come from all the “hidden” videos from his private fundraisers. He will say what they want to hear. Get ready!

4)the real “index” for this election will be RNC vs DNC fundraising.RNC will need less $ for POTUS but much more downstream to counter Trump

5) the reality is that @realDonaldTrump will be MORE beholden to donors than @HillaryClinton because his fund raising is so far behind

Raw Story noted that Mark Cuban attacking Donald Trump has a deeper story behind it, considering that the two used to be friends.

Talking to Extra TV, as quoted by the website, Mark Cuban mocked Donald Trump’s campaign and the fact that he gets “stupider” every minute.

“You have to give him credit. It’s a difficult thing to do, but he’s accomplished it,” he said.

The outspoken Shark Tank judge, whose net worth is said to be around $3 billion, revealed that he was one of the supporters of Donald Trump since he didn’t like Ted Cruz. However, the real estate mogul’s shallow understanding of issues turned him off.

In fact, Cuban said the presumptive GOP presidential candidate has not gotten much “smarter.”

“You look at him and say, ‘What the hell are you talking about? That’s not good for America.'”

According to CNBC, Donald Trump’s campaign is strapped for cash after receiving only $5.6 million last May. After spending $6.7 million, his team only has around $1.3 million in cash. But a press statement from the camp of the GOP candidate claimed that Trump only recently started his fundraising.

Trump also stated that he would put up his own money, if needed, so their resources should not be questioned. The press release claims that the presumptive GOP nominee spent $50 million of his own money during the primaries.

“Our campaign is leaner and more efficient, like our government should be,” Trump explained.

Then there’s Hillary Clinton’s own campaign funding, which is almost ridiculous when pitted against Donald Trump’s pittance of a war chest.

The Guardian said that Clinton still has $42.5 million in cash donations that can be used for her campaign, based on the documents submitted to the Federal Election Commission. That’s over 30 times larger than Trump.

In terms of personnel, while the billionaire has 70, Clinton has 683 people working for her campaign.

“The figures are likely to feed a growing feeling of panic among Republicans about Trump’s chances in November,” the report said.

While Mark Cuban might have called out Donald Trump over his campaign cash, the presumptive GOP nominee has an even bigger challenge ahead of him, as some of his partymates are plotting to replace him during the convention.

So far, Donald Trump dismissed the growing number of dissatisfied party members who are trying their best to take him down.
