The far-left that is running the Dem party will kick him to the curb in no time if it hasn't done it already. Telling a group of libs you don't support the Green New Deal is like telling them you're staunchly pro-life. They want no part of it.
Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz said Tuesday that the Green New Deal, a sweeping climate change and economic overhaul plan proposed by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey, is “not realistic" and "immoral."
The comment puts Schultz, who is thinking about running for president as an independent in 2020, at odds with a host of Democratic candidates who said they would support the plan despite its sweeping impacts.
Schultz suggested during the CNN town hall that while those proposing the plans were not “disingenuous,” they were rolling out the plan because it sounds good.
“Let’s be sensible about what we are suggesting,” he said. “Let’s not just throw things against the wall because it’s a good slogan or a good press release.” Schultz also suggested that the plan was unaffordable:
“I think it is immoral to suggest that we can tally up 20, 30, 40, 50 trillion in debt to solve a problem that can be solved In a different way."
WATCH HERE: Schultz gets a Q on climate change then shifts and addresses the Green New Deal. He tells the audience member the Deal is unrealistic because 2,000 buildings a day would have to be converted to clean energy and it's simply not going to happen.
A little later, Schultz says, if he doesn't have the numbers, he's not gonna run because he doesn't want to anything but defeat Trump in 2020
Howard Schultz: "If the numbers don't add up, I will not run for president, because I will not do anything, whatsoever, to re-elect Donald Trump. No one wants to see him fired more than me." https://t.co/2FDTG6DN78 pic.twitter.com/Hg5JGCzfe7— The Hill (@thehill) February 13, 2019
