Billionaire investor Mark Cuban said Tuesday that “nobody right now” in the Democratic primary field would beat President Trump in 2020 while leaving open the possibility of running as an independent

Asked which Democratic presidential candidate had the best chance against Mr. Trump, Mr. Cuban replied, “Nobody right now.”

“I think what people are missing is if you look at why people voted for Donald Trump, in my opinion, it was because, first and foremost, it was because he wasn’t a politician,” Mr. Cuban told CNBC. “And look, if you look at the Democratic field, it’s all politicians, and politicians are the least trusted of every profession.”

Mr. Cuban, whose net worth is estimated at $3.9 billion, didn’t rule out a run for the White House in 2020, but said it “would take a thunderstorm for me to do it,” citing the toll a campaign would take on his three young children.
