Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, offers Donald Trump $1 million to the charity of Trump’s choosing if the real estate tycoon shaves his head and loses his trademark hair.
The offer comes after Trump offered President Obama a $5 million donation to any charity of his choice in exchange for releasing college and passport records. The request has since been ignored, due to the events of Hurricane Sandy and the 2012 presidential election.
“Obviously [the president] wasn’t born in this country,” declared Trump on Thursday. “Or, if he was, he said he wasn’t in order to receive financial aid and in order to have a clear and very easy path into a college or university. Only a very stupid person would believe otherwise.”
“The offer he made for $5 million, that was one of the dumbest things ever,” Cuban told Dallas’ FOX affiliate Thursday (Nov. 1). “But I thought about responding to him. Maybe I’ll put up a million or two million if he’ll shave his head. What do you think?”
Cuban then clarifies the offer. Speaking straight to the camera, he says, “Donald, you shave your head, a million dollars to any charity you want.”
The Dallas Mavericks owner isn’t the only celebrity who made a counter-offer to Trump: Stephen Colbert also issued a $1 million charitale donation offer to the real estate mogul in a Colbert Report segment.
