The idea of running for President of the United States is something Mark Cuban has toyed with for a couple of years, but his fellow "Shark Tank" investor Barbara Corcoran now says she thinks it's never going to actually happen.

"I'll tell you who I do believe, [Cuban's] wife [Tiffany Stewart]," she said. "When I went to his 60th birthday about six months ago in Dallas, the person I most wanted to see was Mark's wife, and I said to her, 'Are you going to let Mark run for president?' and she said, 'Absolutely not!' And I believe her. And that's what I think the real answer is."

Earlier this week, while speaking with Hill.TV, the Dallas Mavericks owner said he still might consider a presdiential run someday.

"Right now we have nobody in the federal government that we can trust, yet we're looking … for somebody who we can effectively trust with our lives … It's not something I'm going to rush into, but it's not something I've closed the door on," he said.

Cuban has also been focused on the NBA and its suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic. He talked about the situation back in March.

"This is not a situation where you fake it 'til you make it or try to sound or act important," Cuban said to Tom Rinaldi of ESPN. "The NBA has hired people with expertise in those areas, and they are working with people from the government and other people with expertise. We have to defer to them, and that's exactly what we will do."

"It's stunning, but we are where we are," he said. "We have to be smart in how we respond. This is people's lives at stakes. This isn't about basketball; this isn't about the Mavericks. This isn't about when do we start, do we start? Or how do we start? This is a pandemic, a global pandemic where people's lives are at stake. I'm a lot more worried about my kids and my mom, who is 82 years old — in talking to her and telling her to stay in the house — than when we play in our next game."

On last week's episode of "Shark Tank," Cuban and his fellow sharks offered financial advice to small business owners.

"There are so many places you could turn to for loans and grants," Cuban said. "Go to your state's government website. Go to your city's government website. Don't be ashamed. It's an opportunity to save your business and maybe even propel it into something bigger and better than it was before," he added.
