Renowned billionaire investor Mark Cuban is open to being the vice presidential running mate of either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

“Absolutely,” he told Chuck Todd, when asked if he’d be Clinton’s running mate in an interview to air Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”

“The key would be that she’d have to go more to the center.”

He said that he liked the fact the former secretary of state had “thought out” proposals so voters can “see exactly where she stands” but he is concerned about Bernie Sanders effect on her.

“I think Sen. Sanders has dragged her a little bit too far to the left,” the Dallas Mavericks owner and co-star of “Shark Tank” said.

As a self-professed Independent, Cuban said he’d be open to serving as Trump’s vice president, as well.

“I’d have the same conversation for Donald,” he told Todd. “I think Donald has a real chance to win, and that’s scary to a lot of people. But what’s scary about it to me is that you can see him now trying to do what he thinks is right to unify the party.”

He expressed concerns that Trump is “coming across as if he’s proposing things based off of the last person he talks to” which he said is a “problem” to him.

But he held out hope that Trump could change.

“With Donald, could he change? You know, it’s possible for anybody to change,” he said. “But, you know, I just don’t see evidence that he wants to change. I think he’s trying to do what he thinks is the right thing right now. But there’s just so much coming at him at once, he’s looking for shortcuts. And this is just not a job where there are shortcuts.”
