DAILYKENN.com -- It appears Donald Trump is encouraging former Starbuck's former CEO to run for president.
Why would Trump do such a thing? To split the Democrats' vote in 2020.
Trump phrased it like this: "Howard Schultz doesn't have the guts to run for President!"
Those of us who were once children know the simple psychology behind the double-dare-you challenge. The most effective way to get others to do something is to call them "chickens" if they don't.
Are Democrats worried? See below...
Vanity projects that help destroy democracy are disgusting. If he enters the race, I will start a Starbucks boycott because I’m not giving a penny that will end up in the election coffers of a guy who will help Trump win. https://t.co/epUYVrcEg8— Neera Tanden (@neeratanden) January 26, 2019

President Donald Trump on Monday ripped former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, saying the business titan “doesn’t have the ‘guts’ to run for President!”
“Watched him on
last night and I agree with him that he is not the ‘smartest person,’ ” Trump wrote. “Besides, America already has that! I only hope that Starbucks is still paying me their rent in Trump Tower!“
In an interview that aired Sunday night on the CBS show, Schultz said he was considering mounting an independent bid for president. The businessman, a Democrat, blasted his party and the GOP for what he called a “reckless failure” of constitutional responsibility. And he targeted the president’s social media habits.
“I think, like most people, I’ve become bored with President Trump and his tweets,” Schultz told CBS.
