Billionaire and frequent Trump critic says he's thinking about it

Billionaire Mark Cuban said Tuesday he's "actively considering" running for president in 2020 -- although he's almost positive he won't.

"Based off what's happening in the White House, based off what's happening in the country and the world, we need better leadership," Cuban said Tuesday afternoon on CNBC's "Fast Money." (https://www.cnbc.com/2017/10/03/mark-cuban-says-hes-actively-considering-run-for-president.html)

But he also said there's a 90% chance he won't run, in part because he wife doesn't want him to.

"It's not my all-time dream to be president of the United States," Cuban said, adding that he would support another Democratic candidate if he thought they could do a better job than him.

Cuban, who owns the NBA's Dallas Mavericks, has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, and the two engaged in a Twitter feud earlier this year.

"He's not smart enough to run for president!" Trump tweeted about Cuban in February.
