Running for US presidency former Starbucks CEO is claimed by the heckler to not contribute to Trump to be elected. He concerns that Howard Schultz’s independent bid could help President Donald Trump to be re-elected in 2020.
On Sunday, Mr.Schultz said he was seriously thinking of running as an independent candidate in 2020. However, he was immediately urged by Democrats to think again on his words about earning votes away from the Democratic Party nominee.
“Don’t help elect Trump, you egotistical, billionaire, asshole,” shouted the heckler at a Schultz book promotion in New York City on Monday.
He added “Go back to Davos with the rest of the billionaire elite who think they know how to run the world,” before he was pulled aside by security.
During his interview at the book promotion event, Schultz was asked whether he would change his decision when polls show that his candidacy would help Trump to be re-elected.
“If I decide to run for president as an independent, I will believe, and have the courage and conviction to believe, that I can win,” Schultz said. “I’m certainly not going to do anything to put Donald Trump back in the oval office.”
Mr.Schultz stated that he is “”lifelong Democrat”. At the same time he added that Americans are tired of the “revenge politics” of the Republican and Democratic parties. Throughout the history no any independent candidate has won US presidential election.
