Howard Schultz announced he is leaving Starbucks and has alluded to a possible presidential run in 2020. Schultz has been an outspoken critic of President Trump and has a reputation for being a left-leaning CEO. Many feel his mix of social liberalism and fiscal conservatism would make him the ideal person to challenge Trump in 2020. But others argue Trump proves we shouldn't embrace business or celebrity candidates with no formal political experience. What do you think?

When asked about a potential 2020 presidential run, Schultz told the New York Times:

“I want to be truthful with you without creating more speculative headlines. For some time now, I have been deeply concerned about our country — the growing division at home and our standing in the world... One of the things I want to do in my next chapter is to figure out if there is a role I can play in giving back,” he continued. “I’m not exactly sure what that means yet.”
Asked directly if he was considering running for president, he said: “I intend to think about a range of options, and that could include public service. But I’m a long way from making any decisions about the future.”

Many feel Schultz would make an excellent president. Having led Starbucks as chairman and CEO for over three decades, Schultz's mix of social liberalism and fiscal conservatism may be just what America needs.

But it hasn't stopped some from making jokes... 

Others feel rather than run for office himself, Schultz should throw his support behind other candidates who could use the extra financial help.

If there's one thing America should learn from Trump, it's that a business background does not qualify someone to be president. No more billionaire celebrity candidates please.
