Billionaire Wars: Mark Cuban Gives Donald Trump a $10 Million Challenge

Fellow billionaire Mark Cuban threw down the gauntlet to Donald Trump on Friday, offering $10 million if Trump would allow him to be interviewed by Cuban himself to discuss specific policy issues for four hours.

The Dallas Maverick’s owner and supporter of Hillary Clinton gave two ground rules for his proposed interview. Number one, Trump wouldn’t be allowed to mention Hillary Clinton and secondly, he wouldn’t be able to discuss anything other than his specific plans and no one else would be allowed in the room to help him.

Initially, Cuban offered the $10 million to a charity of Trump’s choosing. However, he quickly upped the ante by offering to allow Trump to keep the $10 million for himself, rather than donating it to charity.

Mark Cuban announced his proposal on Twitter, ending it with a line Trump has often used of late to win over the minority vote, “What do you have to lose?”

As of the time of this writing 4:55 PM ET, Donald Trump, who is very active on Twitter, had not responded to Mark Cuban’s challenge.
