Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says he’d “absolutely” consider being Republican Donald Trump’s running mate. He’d also “absolutely” consider being Democrat Hillary Clinton’s.

And if those don’t work out, the reality show star says maybe he’ll run for president in 2020 or 2024.

Cuban’s comments were aired Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” on Sunday.

Cuban said Trump has a “real chance to win” but his statements sound like, “he’s proposing things based off the last person he talked to.”

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton says persistent rival Bernie Sanders “has every right to finish off his campaign however he chooses.” But she says she wants to focus on presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump because his is not “a normal candidacy.”

Clinton noted in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday that she’s won 3 million more votes than Sanders in the Democratic primaries. She said it’s time to talk about Trump because his candidacy poses “immediate dangers” to the country.

Clinton criticized Trump for being open to pulling the U.S. out of NATO and allowing some other countries to have nuclear weapons.

She said she’s willing to talk with Sanders and “take into account” what the Vermont senator is asking for at the party’s national convention this summer.
