Billionaire businessman Mark Cuban said he’s a fan of Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her radical style, but he also thinks she should tone down her partisan language, Business Insider reported.
He told BI on Monday that he sees the freshman congresswoman, who was sworn into office last week, as a potential game changer.
“My hope is that [Ocasio-Cortez] and other young politicians can be great leaders, that have the ability to bring people, regardless of affiliation, together and help move this country forward again,” Cuban he said. “In my opinion, that stands a much better chance of happening if our incoming politicians set a different tone than exists in Washington today.”
The Dallas Mavericks owner’s comments come after his Sunday tweet to Ocasio-Cortez, telling her to “be radical” but also to “leave our bad habit of using partisan language ‘Us vs Them.’”
Be a radical, Be different,Be a change leader Innovate. It’s your generation’s turn to govern. Go for it.But please leave our bad habit of using partisan language “Us vs Them”“Rep vs Dem” “Libs vs Cons“ behind..We are all in this together. Change the Game to Change the World ? https://t.co/fzJJ6gqaOj— Mark Cuban (@mcuban) January 6, 2019
