Mark Cuban: Trump ‘Worst Thing Possible for the Stock Market’

‘Because you have a candidate that doesn’t know when not to talk, there’s nothing worse for the market’

Mark Cuban: Trump "Worst Thing Possible For The Stock Market" (RealClearPolitics)

Mark Cuban appeared on CNBC Tuesday morning and denounced Donald Trump as a threat to the stock market. Cuban, a Clinton supporter, said the Democratic nominee for president has not done a good job of "dispelling the propaganda" against her.

Cuban called Trump the "worst thing possible" for the market:

CNBC: You previously predicted that if Trump won the presidency that the stock market would see mayhem. Do you still believe that to be the case?

MARK CUBAN: I didn't say mayhem but said it would definitely fall. Yes. For two reasons. You saw it when the Comey e-mails came out, what the markets did. If Trump wins I would handicap the likelihood of the probability that he would say something stupid and offensive during a four-year term multiple time at 100%. 

If he is going to say things that are stupid and offensive that could lead to some sort of military action, not originating from the United States but from another country, that is the worst thing possible for the stock market. Because you have a candidate that doesn't know when not to talk, there's nothing worse for the market.
