Billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is offering Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump $10 million - which Trump can either donate to a charity or pocket himself - in exchange for an interview that would focus on questions about Trump's policies.
Cuban tweeted to Trump on Friday, "$10mm to the charity of YOUR choice if you let ME interview you for 4 hrs on YOUR policies and their substance."
Cuban has noted that Trump's plans are "jibberish," Trump countering by saying "Mark isn't smart enough to understand what we are doing."
Cuban, who early in the campaign championed Trump's outspokenness but now supports Hillary Clinton, wrote that his interview would come with a handful of simple ground rules:
*"Groundrules are that you cant mention the Clintons or discuss anything other than the details and facts of yr plans ... and no one else is in the room to help. Just me, you and a broadcast crew. Deal?"
Cuban's initial offer featured the charitable $10 million proposal, but the Mavs owner - who has himself talked about running for office (which I recently wrote about here) and who has frequently questioned Trump's boasts about his wealth - took a poke at Trump's financial liquidity.
"I'll add an option," Cuban wrote to Trump. "If you need it, I'll write you the check and you can keep the money rather than give it to charity. ... In the immortal words of YOU, 'What do you have to lose'?"
