Billionaire entrepreneur and possible 2020 presidential hopeful Mark Cuban lobbed criticisms at President Donald Trump, telling The New York Times' Maureen Dowd that the president is a "troll" who is "overselling all the time" but isn't a "problem solver."

But perhaps Cuban's harshest attack is that Trump has no empathy, saying that to the president, "people are fungible."

"If you just put on the eyes of a sales guy and an entrepreneur who struggled a lot, that's Donald Trump," Cuban told Dowd. "He's overselling all the time. Most people when they sell, they try to solve problems.

"Donald Trump is not a problem solver. Never was. Never will be. To Donald Trump, people are fungible," Cuban told Dowd. "Where's the list of entrepreneurs who say, ‘He mentored me, he helped me, he invested in me'?"

Cuban, owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks and co-star of the cable show "Shark Tank," reaffirmed that he's considering a run for president, putting the chances at "maybe 11" percent.

"I'd want to come in with proof of an agenda, 'Here's a healthcare solution and I've already paid my own money to have it scored,'" Cuban told Dowd.

But for now, he keeps up his running commentary on Trump.

"There are three Donald Trumps," Cuban told Dowd. "Donald Trump, the president. Donald Trump, the salesperson. Donald Trump, the troll. Trolls are going to troll," Cuban told Dowd.

Cuban also mocked any role Russians had in the election, saying that Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton simply wasn't "prepared to have a matchup against a movement."

"The Russians had no effect on the election," Cuban told Dowd. "If you spotted Donald Trump two pieces of bread and behind him was a refrigerator full of ham, he couldn't collude with the Russians to make a ham sandwich."
