Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, a billionaire supporter of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, is finally on Trump train folks!
He was very brutal against Trump for months, but now he is changing teams!
He met quietly with Steve Bannon, President-elect Donald Trump’s controversial chief strategist, on Tuesday, according to a new report.
TMZ tracked down the two men, who were meeting at the King Cole Bar in New York City’s St. Regis hotel. The gossip site noted the men have conducted business together in the past but speculated that this meeting must have been about politics.

In August, Cuban described Bannon, who worked as Trump’s campaign CEO during the election, as “smart.”

Throughout the presidential campaign, Cuban frequently dissed Trump, calling the billionaire businessman “clueless” and “ignorant,” even saying he would “rather lose every penny than have Trump as president.”
But he doesn’t seem to have an issue with Bannon, a former executive at Breitbart News who has been accused of being racist, sexist and anti-Semitic.
This is a huge surprise, because Bannon was attacked from all media as the biggest danger to America!
It is worth noting that, prior to backing Clinton, Cuban expressed interest in seeing an outsider like Trump run for political office, and he has since called on voters to give the president-elect a chance.
Trump is going to have support from almost everybody and that is good thing. He deserves a chance to try to do his job and deliver his promises.
