Mark Cuban Says He's Sitting Front Row for First Presidential Debate
The Dallas Mavericks owner recently offered the the GOP presidential candidate $10 million for a one-on-one interview.
Mark Cuban says he has a prime seat for the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump taking place Monday night.
On Thursday, the billionaire NBA team owner tweeted that he had acquired a front row ticket for the event, which will be held at Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY.
"Just got a front row seat to watch @HillaryClinton overwhelm @realDonaldTrump at the "Humbling at Hofstra" on Monday. It Is On!" Cuban tweeted to his more than 5.5 million followers.
A Clinton aide told CNN that Cuban was invited to the debate by the campaign.
Cuban has been an outspoken critic of Trump — originally he supported the fellow billionaire and reality show star — and even offered the GOP presidential nominee $10 million for a one-on-one interview discussing Trump's "policies and their substance."
Trump never responded to the offer.
As for Cuban's presence at the debate, that could make for an interesting situation. The Dallas Mavericks' owner often sits courtside for his team's games and is known for getting fired up, especially when he doesn't like what he sees.
NBC's Lester Holt will moderate Monday's debate.
