Trump Mega-Donor Sheldon Adelson To Honor Trump Troll Mark Cuban

Donald Trump’s No. 1 critic is about to get an award from Trump’s No. 1 donor.

Mark Cuban, the Texas outspoken billionaire who had trolled Donald Trump on Twitter and made a point of sitting in the front row during presidential debates only to get under Trump’s skin, will be awarded later this month the Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson’s “In Pursuit of Excellence Award” at a gala dinner the Adelson’s educational campus will hold in Las Vegas.

Sheldon Adelson backed Trump financially throughout the campaign to the tune of tens of millions of dollars and has become one of the president’s closest allies, spending inauguration week with the Trump family and sitting down for a private White House dinner with Trump last month.

The Adelsons established the school a decade ago, building on the already existing Hebrew Academy of Las Vegas and expanding it to include pre-school to 12th grade Jewish education.
