DALLAS, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Billionaire NBA owner Mark Cuban thinks he would defeat presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton if he were to enter the race.

On Monday, the Shark Tank star discussed his reasoning during a phone interview on CNBC's Closing Bell mentioning that he could beat Trump due to his connection to the Republican party.

"There's no question about it," Cuban said. "When I said I would crush Trump, it's less on Donald and more on the Republican party."

"I think [the conformity] is just so out of touch with what is happening in America today," he said of the GOP. "In this day and age, you can't just have one party line, you have to take into account what's going on in the world."

Cuban doesn't even think Hillary Clinton would stand a chance against him either.

"I think Hillary's kind of blown it. I think there's no chance for her to win an election," Cuban said. "I think she just lost her shot."

However, the Dallas Mavericks owner, who coincidentally played a fictional president of the United States in Sharknado 3, has no plans to run for president. "I get asked every day. It's a fun idea to toss around," he said.

Cuban is the latest high profile personality to comment on the Republican presidential hopeful as Miss Alabama Meg McGuffin took the stage Sunday during the Miss America pageant to slam Trump for being an 'entertainer' who is taking away from candidates like Jeb Bush and Chris Christie.
