Is billionaire businessman Mark Cuban trying to make amends with President-elect Donald Trump now that the candidate he backed, Hillary Clinton, was defeated?
It looked like it to many on Tuesday night when the Dallas Mavericks owner and star of “Shark Tank” was spotted out with Trump senior advisor Steve Bannon.
The pair was spotted together at the King Cole Bar in St. Regis in New York City.
They have done business together in the past. During an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Cuban praised Bannon as being smarter than Trump and said he was playing him to help Breitbart News’ business.
But social media users speculated this meeting was more about seeking forgiveness than doing business.
