In a string of tweets Wednesday morning, Mark Cuban again claimed that Donald Trump isn’t as rich as he claims and said he expects the presumptive Republican nominee to “grovel” for donor money.

“I expect @realDonaldTrump to try to calm down,” Cuban’s first tweet said. “He doesn’t have the cash to fund his campaign, he needs to appease donors quickly.”

Cuban then repeated his claim than Trump has less than $165 million and estimated Trump’s campaign will cost at least $750 million. “He will have to grovel for that cash and will,” Cuban said.

Cuban claimed that “the real fun” will come from secret recordings of Trump asking donors for money: “He will say what they want to hear. Get ready!” Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign took a hit after video of his infamous “47 percent” comments to donors leaked to the press.

Cuban closed his string of tweets by arguing that Trump will be more “beholden” to donors than Hillary Clinton because of how far behind he is in fundraising.
