Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban trashed Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy arguing that Trump hasn’t learned it and is still running a “Seinfeld” candidacy about “nothing.”

Appearing on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily” with Steve Kornacki on Monday, Cuban said that Trump “really did change politics but at some point, as a candidate, you have to learn and you have to evolve.”

Cuban said that when you look at Trump’s candidacy “you don’t say, ‘Wow, he’s really come a long way, his positions are more detailed. He’s shown a detailed understanding. He’s really made an investment in time to learn about any given position or issue.'”

Trump “just hasn’t. He hasn’t learned and that’s a real problem,” Cuban said. “As I said before, it’s become a candidacy about nothing, the Seinfeld candidacy and that’s a problem. that’s what’s changed.”

Personally, Cuban said that he likes Trump. “I like the guy. I would have no problem talking to him on the phone. We get along great. But that doesn’t mean I agree with his positions and I’ve told him that when we have talked to the phone.”

“I spent a lot of time talking to him, because I thought between Donald Trump and [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore], I just did not want Ted Cruz. I was an anybody but Cruz guy. So I was willing to work with Donald, help him where I could but at this point, I really thought he would have a more evolved and more depth platform and it’s just not there. And we’ve come to recognize that.”

Trump is “better off by not getting into any detail, because I don’t think his followers want it.”
