Billionaire and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has recently been ripping into Donald Trump on Twitter, making it no surprise he decided to endorse his opponent in the presidential race.

Cuban endorsed Hillary Clinton during a surprise appearance at a rally in his hometown of Pittsburgh on Saturday, according to the Star-Telegram.

"I'm ready to tell you that I'm ready to vote for a true leader, I'm ready to vote for the American Dream, I'm ready to tell the world that I am here to endorse Hillary Clinton," Cuban said, according to the Star-Telegram.

"Leadership is not yelling and screaming and intimidating. You know what we call a person like that in Pittsburgh? A jagoff. Is there a bigger jagoff in the world than Donald Trump?"

Cuban, who has described his politics as libertarian-leaning, was also critical of Trump's praise of Russian President Vladamir Putin, according to the Star-Telegram, and noted "Shark Tank," a show he stars in, "kicked 'The Apprentice's ass."
