Mark Cuban said President Donald Trump has “no leadership skills, no management skills” Wednesday on CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper.”

The tech billionaire said that while he was wrong about how the markets and business community would react to Trump winning the election, the president lacks the “communication skills” to get the things passed that he promised his voters. (RELATED: Mark Cuban: I Don’t Think President Trump Will ‘Last Four Years’)

“No leadership skills, no management skills,” Cuban responded. “Not very good communication skills. But he’s obviously had an impact on the economy so he gets credit for that. People believe in what he’s doing on the tax front.” (RELATED: Mark Cuban Highly Doubts Donald Trump Is A Billionaire)

“There’s a lot of positives that are positives for business,” he added. “But you still have to look at the bigger picture because even though he has put out these executive orders, even though he has signaled the intent to do all these things and the market has believed in it, any leader, particularly the president, has got to lead. And he’s got to lead to get these things passed.”

“And we are seeing the difficulties of his communication skills with what we are seeing with Obamacare vs Trumpcare,” he continued. “Rallying the crowd and putting together a hype video and managing and leading are two different things. When it comes to communication skills have you seen him answer any questions? At some point you have to communicate an understanding of the issues. If you can’t delve into the issues how are you going to come to a resolution on anything.”

Cuban also answered if he plans to run for president in 2020.

“I don’t want to say no, but it’s not my dream to be president of the United States, but would like to have influence.”
