The Billionaire Behind Starbucks Might Run For Prez And Everyone Hates It


Watched him on @60Minutes last night and I agree with him that he is not the "smartest person".

"I believe that if I ran as a Democrat, I would have to say things that I know in my heart I do not believe, and I would have to be disingenuous".

Schultz also used his 60 Minutes appearance to talk about his new book, "From the Ground Up".

"The great likelihood is that an independent would just split the anti-Trump vote and end up re-electing the President", Bloomberg stated, noting that the same concerns forced him to drop an independent bid in the past. Before there was Nader, there was Ross Perot.

Political strategists say such a third-party candidacy would divide the left, taking votes from the president's yet-to-be nominated Democratic challenger.

Howard Schultz, who stepped down as the firm's boss a year ago, says he is considering running as a centrist independent candidate in 2020.

As CEO of Starbucks, Howard Schultz got into the habit of signing his memos to employees, "Onward, Howard".

Schmidt knows better than this. "I believe that lifelong Democrats and lifelong Republicans are looking for a home, and they're not spending hours and hours on Twitter".

The Green Party's Ralph Nader received nearly 3 per cent of the vote nationwide in 2000, and many people blame his 97,000 votes in Florida for costing Democrat Al Gore the White House. "The 2020 race for president has to be about relegating Donald Trump to the dustbin of history, and reclaiming the Oval Office for our people and our future". If he thinks that he can successfully run on denying things from the American people-then I think he should definitely take the plunge.

Castro said Trump's only hope at getting re-elected is if a third party candidate siphons off votes from the Democratic nominee.

Could America elect a president who probably couldn't even win a race for his own district's City Council seat? "Bring me your ideas". I abandoned the Democratic Party after I graduated high school because of how cozy it was with Wall Street, and I enthusiastically viewed Barack Obama's Wall Street-centric campaign in 2008 similarly to how I look at Warren and Sanders now.

Schultz blamed both parties for the country's $21.5 trillion debt, which he portrayed as "a reckless example" of the "failure of their constitutional responsibility". And while running a coffee chain with locations across the United States and around the globe, Schultz was willing to thrust his company into contentious social and political debates over the years.

According to Schultz's website, the new book tells his story about growing up in public housing in Brooklyn, New York, as well as his effort "to challenge the traditional role of business in society" while helping Starbucks become the world's largest coffee shop chain. The decision was one of the strongest rebukes at the time against a Trump order suspending admission of refugees into the US and barring citizens from seven mostly Muslim countries.

Schultz, who closed hundreds of stores and turned the company around, transferred the chief executive job to Kevin Johnson in April 2017 but remained hands-on at the company until June.
