Billionaire businessman and investor, Mark Cuban, has revealed that he personally knows women that have been sexually assaulted by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
In a telephone interview with CNN host Don Lemon, Cuban explained that many women will not come forward with their stories.
This was prompted by Lemon’s asking if Cuban was surprised by the accusations against the GOP candidate.
What’s more is that Cuban claims to be friends with at least one woman that he believes has been assaulted by Trump. In response to Lemon’s questioning about this, Cuban said:
“Yes, and I know one, and it just didn’t happen recently. My friend reminded me and it was from 2000 and she, you know, I don’t expect her to come forward. I wouldn’t recommend she come forward. I know somebody else from two years ago that won’t come forward. So you know, it’s not anything that caught me by surprise.”
This revelation comes just days after a recording of Trump was made public by an unknown source. In the recording, Trump discusses how his fame allows him to sexually assault women because he believes they want it.
Cuban’s disdain for Trump is no secret, with him publicly trolling the presidential candidate about Wednesday’s debate:
Cuban was also present for the first debate between Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, and Trump.
The Trump-Cuban Feud Continues
Trump and Cuban have had a long-term feud brewing since the start of Trump’s presidential bid. Trump has called Cuban both an “asshole” and a “total loser,” whereas Cuban has said that Trump gets:
“Stupider before your eyes”
Cuban has also said the following to Bill Maher:
“First of all, when you look at that tax return, it shows he didn’t have a billion dollars in cash. You can work backwards from the amount of tax and interest that he earned. That means if he didn’t have it, he didn’t have it to lose—so he had to borrow it. So not only did he lose it, he lost someone else’s money. How the fuck do you do that!”
