Billionaire business mogul Mark Cuban posted a series of tweets blasting Donald Trump Sunday after the president tweeted Cuban is "not smart enough" to seek the presidency.

Cuban supported Hillary Clinton during the presidential campaign and made some sharp attacks on Trump, although he has liked some of Trump's ideas in the past. This time, Mark Cuban was in the crosshairs. When asked by a Twitter user, Cuban didn't have an answer.

Cuban's first response was a one-word tweet: "Lol". Trump has also tweeted that "nobody loves" Cuban, who took plenty more jabs at Trump.

The New York Post recently claimed that Mark Cuban is on the list of people Trump "fears" will run against him in 2020.

Nicki Minaj Fires Back At Giuseppe Zanotti Over 'Racism And Disrespect'

Nothing happened. Once you got past [Ted] Cruz I really hoped you would dig into the issues. "It's a tough situation for CEOs". In an email to Trump via speechwriter Meredith McIver dated May 8, 2016, Cuban wrote, "You don't have to bore people with details".

"You want to make nice with the president because you're a public company", he told The Star-Telegram, adding "it's hard to balance doing the right financial thing versus doing what they think is the right thing, whatever your political beliefs are". "I like to challenge you".

"In the bigger scheme of things, our country benefits from peaceful activism a lot more than it benefits from one more shoe being sold, or one more basketball ticket being sold, for that matter", Cuban said.

In the letter, Cuban notes, "Everyone is afraid of you".
