Billionaire Mark Cuban said President Trump's deal with Democrats on the federal budget and hurricane funding "hit the nail on the head."

“It’s pure, classic Donald Trump. I thought it was really smart,” Cuban told host Neil Cavuto. “The biggest fear a salesperson has is that a deal would die, and so working with somebody, even if it’s for a short term, even if it’s with the Democrats keeps the deal alive.”

The Dallas Mavericks owner has been a staunch critic of the president on policy. However, the funding deal is a “first step” in doing something “for the people,” Cuban said.

"There's a lot of things I disagree with him on, but this is one thing I think he's hit the nail on the head," Cuban said.

“I think he’s being who the people elected him to be," Cuban said. "He’s trying to get deals done without playing partisan politics."

"Stop being a politician. Start working for the people, which I think he's trying to do, and let's get something done."

Cuban has sparked speculation about his own 2020 presidential ambitions.

“Being president is not my ultimate goal but look, the ultimate goal here truly is to increase wages," Cuban told Fox Business. "That’s been the mystery across the board.”
