Clinton supporter Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, met with Donald Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon on Tuesday.
Trump Supporter Mark Cuban Meets with Bannon
TMZ found the two men at the King Cole Bar in New York City’s St. Regis Hotel. TMZ noted that the two have conducted business together in the past, but this meeting was about politics.
It’s important to note that Cuban had a lot of negative things to say about Trump during the campaign. He labeled Trump as “clueless” and “ignorant.” He even took it a step further and said “he would rather lose every penny than have Trump as president.” It seems he does not have an issue with Bannon who has been labeled as racist, anti-Semitic and sexist.
In August on Twitter Cuban described Bannon as smart.

Another thing to look at is the fact that in the past Mark Cuban called for an outsider, like Trump, to run for president. Also since Trump has been elected he has pushed people to give him a chance.
We all need to give President-Elect Trump a chance. Support the good. Lobby against what we disagree on. No one is bigger than us all

TMZ caught up with an employee who was working during the Bannon-Cuban meeting. When asked about the meeting he offered “no comment.”
As far as where Trump stands on the allegations against Bannon, he has stated that he would never hire anyone who is alt-right or racist.
