Before Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump faced off in the third and final debate last night in Las Vegas, billionaire businessman Mark Cuban and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani served as the warm-up act when they held court on CNN.
The subject of disagreement between Cuban and Giuliani was Trump’s so-called “business experience,” of which Cuban remarked:
“Name any of his products that are still successful,” Cuban charged. “He cheated — cheated — 6,000 people from Trump University. Hard working men and women, he took tens of thousands of dollars from them.”
“Trump games, Trump cards, Trump steaks, Trump clothes. When somebody has to give their name and sell their name that often, that tells me they’re desperate. He has not had a long track record in business. He’s done okay in real estate, but everything else, he’s been a major failure at.
“Now he’s crushing his brand. And everything he says makes no sense because he’s crushing his brand even more.”
Giuliani, clearly overwhelmed by the factual information Cuban had just provided to bolster his argument, finally managed toblurt out that Trump “has had great success in business.”
But Cuban was more than ready for that line of debate, asking:
“Then why all the failures? He’s been sued 3,500 times, I’ve been sued less than 10.”
