Frequent Donald Trump critic Mark Cuban didn’t have much good to say about the president’s executive order banning refugees and immigrants from Muslim-majority countries.
“Half-assed,” came immediately to mind when the tech billionaire was asked by CNN’s Erin Burnett what he thought of it.
Speaking by phone, Cuban said it was likely that Trump’s executive order that created chaos in airports and for government employees played well with Trump’s base — and that would only embolden him.
Asked as a businessman what he thought Trump’s decision, Cuban had stronger words.
“Look, let’s be real clear,” Cuban said building up a rant. “The ban was half-assed and half-baked. If the goal was security, why do you leave off other countries that hosted terrorism? That’s like locking your front door and leaving your windows open and the blaming the Obama seven, and matching them up to the previous owner because that’s what they did.”
“It was half-baked, it wasn’t thought out, it was rushed and it was ridiculous,” Cuban continued. “When something like that happens it calls into question the management skills of the guy in charge.”
