Mark Cuban Implores Dems to Compromise With Trump: ‘Bannon is Praying’ Dems Obstruct



After months spent trying to troll then-candidate and now-President Donald Trump, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is encouraging democrats to compromise with him and practice obstructionism.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday night, the Shark Tank star said that a strategy of blocking all of Trump’s moves is a strategy that’s doomed to fail, and a strategy that White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is “praying” democrats will employ.

The tweets came on the same night that Trump announced his nomination of Neil Gorsuch to fill the late Antonin Scalia‘s seat on the Supreme Court. In a report by POLITICO, Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) suggested his colleagues might opt for a more combative approach to Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing.

“The burden is on Judge Neil Gorsuch to prove himself to be within the legal mainstream and, in this new era, willing to vigorously defend the Constitution from abuses of the executive branch and protect the constitutionally enshrined rights of all Americans,” Schumer said. “Given his record, I have very serious doubts about Judge Gorsuch’s ability to meet this standard.”
