Trump said Cuban was "not smart enough to run for president" in a freakish and seemingly unprovoked attack on Cuban early Sunday morning. He backed me big-time but I wasn't interested in taking all of his calls.
In a subsequent tweet Sunday morning, Cuban reminded Trump about why he changed his allegiance while sharing what appears to be a hand-written note he received from the eventual president.
He had earlier criticised Trump's travel ban stating that the plan will do more harm than good.
Cuban is no stranger when it comes to engaging with Trump. Quite frankly, he's relieved that Trump "is tweeting rather than trying to govern".
Cuban and Trump have had a topsy-turvy relationship over the years and during the presidential campaign. Another WH insider went on to say, "He's not a typical candidate".

The New York Post recently claimed that Mark Cuban is on the list of people Trump "fears" will run against him in 2020. In an email to Trump via speechwriter Meredith McIver dated May 8, 2016, Cuban wrote, "You don't have to bore people with details".
In recent weeks, after laying off of Trump following his electoral victory, Cuban has returned to hammering the president on social media and in TV interviews.
Cuban included his very public response to Trump saying he had potential, but warned, "You need to dig in and know your shit".
Cuban was warmer to the idea of a Trump presidency during the primary season, but quickly soured on the Manhattan billionaire after he secured the nomination.
