"Right now, we are really, really, very stupid by really, really, really educated people who could do a lot for our really, very important economy and send them home, "he said.
While he said he thinks current administration is working to improve the situation, Cuban added that "it doesn't happen fast enough."
"Just to be brutally honest, we are doing it the wrong way," he said according to dallasnews.com.
The criticism of the "Shark Tank" star and the deep-closed investor came just a month after he told Fox News in an email that he did not completely rule out a run for the White House.
