Starbucks’ now-ex CEO Howard Schultz is not cut out to be the next US president, asserts Jill Filipovic of CNN. While he has shown to be a man of values, pushing for progressive causes, such as helping employees with college tuition, he doesn’t have the necessary experience. Donald Trump showed the risks of a person without a political background being given the most important job in the world. Someone who understands political issues and foreign policy beyond just reading the newspaper and knows how to create policy is needed. While some centrists and liberals may approve of him, Schultz shouldn’t be US president.
Howard Schultz, the former CEO of Starbucks, has shown great business acumen, strong values and an understanding of US political issues, all of which make him a great US presidential candidate, infers Rick Newman. He knows US health policy well and worked to give Starbucks employees coverage. His unique marketing qualities made the company what it is today, a hugely successful international coffee powerhouse. Schultz has long championed social justice causes and seems to be in touch with American values. Charismatic and visionary, he could be a solid US president that heals the country's political wounds.
