Mark Cuban called Donald Trump an “idiot” on “The View” on Friday, but refused to say whether he’ll run against him for president in 2020. Watch the video below.

Cuban appeared on the ABC talk show as this week’s “Guy Day Friday” co-host. Joy Behar introduced the mogul by saying he’s a “billionaire and reality competition host, which are the only qualifications needed to be president.” Asked if Trump is really a billionaire, as he claims, Cuban responded, “I have the ‘billion,’ he has the ‘aire.’ Boom!”

Behar then wondered if Trump’s taxes would prove he doesn’t have as much money as he claims. Cuban replied, “I don’t know why he doesn’t show his taxes… Look, the guy’s made money. But that doesn’t qualify him [to be president].” The Dallas Mavericks owner alleged the president is hiding “both” his dealings with the Russians and that his fortune is smaller than he says.

Cuban also addressed waking up one morning to find “the president tweeted about me.” He told the panelists, “There’s noting more surreal.” And while he initially wondered how to respond, he ultimately laughed it off. “He’s an idiot. I don’t care what he said. I’ve got thick skin. He doesn’t,” Cuban said.

Behar also said to Cuban, “Your name has been talked around as a potential presidential candidate. Let’s makes some news here. Are you into it?” He initially replied with an enthusiastic “definitely!” But that was just a joke. More seriously, he said, “We’ll see what happens.”

“So you’re not going to be announcing your bid for 2020 here?” asked Paula Faris. Cuban quipped, “Not today. Maybe later in the show.” Trump continued to be a subject Cuban discussed throughout his appearance, at one point calling the president “oblivious to everything,” and remarking, “He never listens. If you’re not willing to listen, you’re never going to learn.” Check out the video below.
