Mark Cuban Plans To Rile Donald Trump From Front Row at Debate

Donald Trump may not like what he sees when he scans the crowd at Monday night’s debate with Hillary Clinton.

Billionaire Mark Cuban has scored a front-row seat for the high-stakes showdown at Long Island’s Hofstra University — and is vowing to keep a close eye on what he believes will be the mogul’s epic missteps, Politico reported.

In a play on Muhammad Ali’s famed ‘Thrilla in Manila’ fight, Cuban dubbed the debate the ‘Humbling at Hoftstra’ for Trump.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign lauded the move, noting that Cuban is not known for hiding his emotions during high-profile events.

Cuban has feuded with Trump repeatedly on a number of issues, including whether the Donald is really as rich as he claims. Cuban has also taken some jabs at Clinton for not running a stronger campaign.

Other independent minded billionaires have also joined Cuban in shunning Trump, including ex-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
