Howard Schultz said he considering running for president because he's concerned for the American people -- though he doesn't you to compare him to Trump.
"I think his record and what he has accomplished within the Oval Office speaks for itself. I'm here today and speaking publicly about thinking about running for president because of my concern for the American people and my love of the country. I think we can be doing so much better than we are," Schultz said.
He continued: "I think we look at the country today, it's very fragile, our standing in the world, and what I think what's missing right now is a deep sense of leadership that the more than people are longing for and deserve, a sense of character, a sense of morality, a level of civility."
Schultz acknowledged that his business experience "is not qualifications to run for president, but it is what I've learned along the way."
