The strangest US presidential campaign in recent memory now includes a social media spat between its two most famous TV businessmen. In the blue corner: ABC’s Shark Tank celebrity investor Mark Cuban. In the red: the one and only former emcee of NBC’s The Apprentice, Donald Trump.
The two, and their surrogates, have been at it for months. But the latest spat, over the Republican nominee’s proposed border wall with Mexico and detention centers for undocumented immigrants, comes amid on/off rumors that Cuban might act as a surrogate for Trump during Hillary Clinton’s preparation for their first presidential debate.
