LATTE NERVE! Starbucks’ Schultz SLAMS ‘Green New Deal,’ Cortez Fires Back

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.13.19

Former Starbucks CEO and potential 2020 candidate Howard Schultz ripped the ‘Green New Deal’ as totally “unrealistic” Tuesday, saying Democrats are simply throwing ideas “against the wall because it’s a good slogan.”

“I read that by 2030 they’re suggesting that every building in America becomes clean energy, conforms to clean energy, just to put that in perspective, because it’s not realistic, that would mean that between 2,000 and 3,000 buildings a day would have to be reconstructed to conform to what they’re saying,” said Schultz.

“So let’s be sensible about what we’re suggesting,” he added.

Green New Deal sponsor Rep. Ocasio-Cortez fired-back at Schultz a short-time later; suggesting “things are already going fine” for billionaires in America.

Why? Because for billionaires, things are already going fine. https://t.co/YrZlU5zvdh

GLOVES OFF: Howard Schultz SLAMS Democrats, Says US ‘Can’t Afford’ Socialist Programs

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.29.19

Former Starbucks CEO and potential 2020 presidential candidate Howard Schultz slammed the Democratic Party Tuesday; saying the US simply “can’t afford” to implement “Medicare for All” and “free college” across the country.

Schultz was speaking with the hosts of The View when he said it would be “disingenuous” for him to run as a Democrat because he would need to embrace massive federal entitlement programs.

“I would have to be disingenuous if I ran as a Democrat because in order to run as a Democrat today you have to fall in-line with free Medicare for everybody, free college for everybody, and a free job for everybody,” said Schultz.

“That totals about $40 trillion… We can’t afford to do it ‘free,'” he added.

President Trump unloaded on former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz Monday morning; saying the left-wing business executive doesn’t have the “guts” to run for the White House in 2020.

“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!” tweeted the Commander-in-Chief.

Trump’s comments come hours after the Starbucks CEO told reporters he was actively considering a third-party run for the White House; saying “both parties are consistently not doing what’s necessary on behalf of the American people.”
