Mark Cuban has been extremely vocal in recent weeks about the US government's handling of the coronavirus situation. Last week, Cuban shared his thoughts on Trump's lofty projections for an economic recovery stating, "I wish he was right, but he’s not. I think it’s going to be slower. I think there’s going to be so many different ways we’ll have to adapt to this new abnormal.” A shrewd businessman, Cuban has also raised his voice against several policies laid down by Trump in the past.
