“I am seriously thinking of running for president. I will run as a centrist independent, outside of the two-party system we’re living at a most-fragile time not only the fact that this president is not qualified to be the president, but the fact that both parties are consistently not doing what’s necessary on behalf of the American people and are engaged, every single day, in revenge politics.
“I’ve been a lifelong Democrat. I look at both parties— we see extremes on both sides well, we are sitting, today, with approximately $21.5 trillion of debt, which is a reckless example, not only of Republicans, but of Democrats, as well, as a reckless failure of their constitutional responsibility.” – Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, in an interview broadcast last night with 60 Minutes.
I love our country, and I am seriously considering running for president as a centrist independent.

Howard Schultz knows some Dems are going to hate him for his 2020 flirtation: “I’m not considering this to win the Twitter primary.” https://t.co/CxgkxnR75l
