Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban argued that Donald Trump would do a better job of crossing the aisle and reducing gridlock in Congress than Hillary Clinton because she has “done a horrible job of communicating and humanizing herself.”

Appearing on CNN’s “New Day” on Thursday, Cuban said, “I am a citizen like everybody else and what is happening is scaring me, right. And it’s not so much who will get elected, but it’s what happens after they get elected.”

 

“You know, we’ve been picking on Trump, but Hillary is not absolved of blame either,” Cuban said. “As much as we’ve said they’ve turned Hillary into a nonperson, right. They’ve not treated her like a human being, a lot of that’s her fault, right. The customer is always right. The voter is always right.”

 

“She hasn’t done a good enough job of humanizing herself,” Cuban argued. “As a result, post election, if Hillary wins, if we think gridlock is bad now, if we think approval ratings for Congress are bad now, it’s going to be 1,000 times worse.”

 

Host Chris Cuomo interjected, “You don’t buy the Clinton argument that ‘I’ve been there before, these people know me, they’ll work with me’?”

 

“No, of course not,” Cuban replied. “If you look at what the obstructionism that the Republican Party has offered to Obama, it’s going to be 1,000 times worst for Hillary Clinton.”

 

“If I had to make an argument for Donald Trump, the argument is I think right now, he would do a better job of crossing the aisle and reducing gridlock than Sen. Clinton would,” Cuban said. “And I think that’s a reflection of the fact that Sen. Clinton has done a horrible job of communicating and humanizing herself.”

 

“I mean, it’s horrible to say for a presidential candidate we’re talking about humanizing, right, but they made her not human,” Cuban said. “They demonized her so bad with ‘Killary’ and all this name-calling that she has got, if she has any hope of accomplishing anything, if she wins, she is going to have to get out there and really connect.”
