Mark Cuban and Donald Trump have a rollercoaster history as “frenemies”.
Some days they seem close, like when Cuban let Trump host a rally in his Mavericks Stadium early in the 2016 presidential campaign.
Those iconic photos still circulate to this day, and it was a big boost for Trump from a fellow friendly billionaire.
But other times have not been so friendly, and Cuban has been quick to share his criticisms of President Trump.
Perhaps it should not be surprising.
These are two absolute Alpha Males.
And they have a lot in common.
Both rich. Both strong willed. Both driven. Both comfortable in front of the camera. Both very outspoken.
So it’s nice to see them teaming up instead of attacking each other.
And the cooperation comes courtesy of President Trump’s invitation….and Cuban’s acceptance.
Take a look:
Wise move President Trump!
And it shows what a great leader we have as a President.
Even for someone who has been critical of him in recent years, President Trump puts that all behind him in the effort of getting the best people on his panel.
Fox News had more details:
"Right now I'm supporting the president," Cuban told FOX Business’ Stuart Varney referring to hinting at running for the presidency. "I'm here to help him on his council. Whatever I can do as an American – I'm all in."
Trump on Tuesday named Cuban as one of the leaders that he would be meeting by telephone to help resurrect the ailing U.S. economy.

While the Dallas Mavericks owner would not discuss plans for a presidential run, he did float some economic ideas that he believes “conservatives would be very interested” in hearing.
First, Cuban said he isn’t sure whether the Small Business Administration's Paycheck Protection Program and the Economic Injury Disaster Loan programs are working and there should be a “friction-free approach to keeping the economy open.”
“I'd work with the Fed and the Treasury and banks to install an overdraft protection program and that allows small businesses and medium-sized businesses, in particular, to continue business as usual,” he said.
Cuban also believes investing in robotics would create an “America 2.0” that established the U.S. as the economic leader of the world.
“I think we have to start talking about robotics taxes, because when we get back to work if we're really going to bring manufacturing back here, we can't try to recreate the manufacturing of the past where we put everybody in the assembly line and pretend that there's going to be a lot of manufacturing jobs. We have to invest as a country in robotics because that's the way we're going to be able to bring manufacturing over here and beat the pants off the Chinese at what they do best, which is low-cost manufacturing,” he said.
