President Donald Trump slammed former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz after the business tycoon confirmed that he is seriously considering the idea of running for president as an independent.
On Monday, Trump said Schultz doesn’t have the courage to run for president and he agrees that he is “not the smartest person.”
Howard Schultz doesn’t have the “guts” to run for President! Watched him on @60Minutes last night and I agree with him that he is not the “smartest person.” Besides, America already has that! I only hope that Starbucks is still paying me their rent in Trump Tower!

The President’s tweet comes after Schultz told CBS’ Scott Pelley on 60 Minutes, “I am seriously thinking of running for president I will run as a centrist independent, outside of the two-party system.”
Schultz is willing to spend what it takes to win the presidential election
The business tycoon also stated that Trump is “not qualified to be the president,” which he believes one of the reasons “we’re living at a most-fragile time.”
