Good News! Ex-Starbucks CEO and Trump-Bashing Liberal Howard Schultz to Run for President as Independent in Spoiler for Democrats

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced on Sunday he is running for President as an Independent candidate in a spoiler role for Democrats.

Schultz is a frequent critic of President Donald Trump. He stands for open borders, higher taxes and abortion.
He will be the perfect spoiler candidate to ensure President Trump is reelected in 2020.

Politico reported:

Schultz, the former Starbucks CEO, says in a 60 Minutes interview already recorded but airing on Sunday that he is thinking very seriously about a presidential run—but he stops short of a full announcement.

He makes clear, however, that if he moves forward, he will do so as an independent.

Already top Democratic operatives working for presidential candidates and beyond say they’re worried that the only thing he’ll accomplish is making sure Donald Trump gets re-elected. It’s more than just sniping at a prospective opponent; word that he might invest in an independent run has many of them clearly worried about how he’d split votes in a general election.
