Billionaire businessman Mark Cuban told TMZ on Wednesday he likes some of what President Donald Trump is doing, but said he doesn't expect Trump to make it through a full term of office.
"Some of his policies are fine," Cuban said during a visit to New York City Wednesday morning. "Some of the Republican policies, tax reform, reduction of bureaucracy ... I think there are a lot of positives there."
Cuban added that he doesn't think those are actually Trump's ideas, but those of the Republican Party.
And the execution of Trump's temporary travel ban on people from seven countries with terror ties, that also are majority Muslim, has been "horrible," he said.
"I mean, I don't think he'll last four years," Cuban said. "But we'll see."
Trump's executive order has sparked protests at airports and accusations it's actually a ban on Muslims. U.S. District Court Judge James Robart stayed Trump's order, and it is currently being considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
"Look, it's our country. We want him to do well. We want the country to do well," said Cuban, who supported Democrat Hillary Clinton against Trump in November's general election. "There's a lot of great opportunity here. It's not about policies; it's about temperament, it's about approach, it's about investing the time to learn."
Trump is "the Twitter president," Cuban continued, because his tweets tell the public "what he's thinking, or not thinking."
But a "social media president" should "rip on the media," he said. "Just tell your story. Facebook doesn't have a character limit. Instead of having [press secretary] Sean Spicer go out there and just try to respond to everything, pre-empt the whole thing by going in-depth about all your policies and tell us what you are thinking."
But Trump has a challenge, Cuban said: "I don't know that he knows what he's thinking."
