Our President understands what Howard Schultz’s would mean if he decides to run as an Independent in the 2020 Presidential Election.
From the article linked above:
Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz’s open consideration of an independent, third-party bid for the White House has numerous Democratic political operatives and candidates sounding the alarm.
“I have a concern that if he did run, that essentially, it would provide Donald Trump with his best hope of getting re-elected,” Julian Castro — a former Housing and Urban Development secretary under the Obama administration and a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate himself — said Sunday when asked by CNN about Schultz’s possible run. “I would suggest to Mr. Schultz to truly think about the negative impact that that might make.”
“.@HowardSchultz running for POTUS as an independent would put the froth on @realDonaldTrump’s Cinnamon Dolce Latte, splitting the opposition and making Trump’s low ceiling potentially high enough,” David Axelrod, former President Barack Obama’s campaign manager, tweeted on Jan. 21.
The problem for the Democrats is magnified in Schultz’s decision. A large number of Democrats believe in Socialism (nearly 40%). They want someone that would push the Socialism agenda forward (i.e. Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren etc.).
However, the poll below shows the reality for “Sane” Democrats and why our President will be reelected whether Schultz runs or not.
The problem for these “Sane” Democrats is that the crazies on the far Left want Socialism and all that comes with it. Any Moderate Democrat will not stand a chance given the fact that the crazies will not support them financially or in primaries especially since California moved their primary up to the first Super Tuesday in March.
The Kamala Harris’, Bernie Sanders’, Elizabeth Warren’s of the world will benefit tremendously by the primary schedule and small and large donors.
Howard Schultz sees the tweet above and thinks he can pluck enough of those voters from the right and left and become the next President of the USA.
Just a half hour ago he put the following tweet out.
The Left has implored their people to go after Schultz telling him he can’t win.
Our President understands that his policies and his agenda have captured those Americans in the middle. Schultz will be able to pull some of those Democrats to him. Our President realizes those “Sane” Democrats wouldn’t be voting for him no matter what. They would vote for one of the crazies listed above. If Schultz takes 2% to 3% of the votes away from the Democrat Candidate, our President will not only win every state he won in 2016 but you can include New Hampshire, Minnesota, Nevada and possibly New Mexico into his total electoral count.
He knows that by trolling Schultz, the more likely he will be to go through with his run as an Independent.
