Former CEO of Starbucks, Howard Schultz is considering to enter presidential run this year. According to a trail of tweets by him, he said that current political parties performing in the U.S. were more divided than ever.
He wants to bring people together to create opportunities, he posted through a tweet.
He had been a Democrat, although criticized current two political parties as a dominating system, amid an interview with CBS. Further, Schultz said that the U.S. has been suffering from a most sensitive time where the country has an unqualified president. And both political parties are not performing up to the mark. They have been failed to do what is necessary on behalf of the U.S. citizens. Parties seem to spend all the time in revenge politics, he added.
Another potential presidential candidate, Julián Castro is one of them ho had criticized Mr. Schultz for his recent move. While speaking to the media Castro said that Schultz’s participation in presidential race could give President Trump a great opportunity to get re-elected by dividing the opposition votes.
