Howard Schultz for President?

Howard Schultz is beating Donald Trump in one of the president’s most-cherished metrics, should he decide to challenge the incumbent in 2020. He’s got more money.

The 64-year-old Starbucks Corp. chairman, who announced Monday that he’s leaving the coffee chain and weighing his options, has a $3.2 billion fortune to mount a bid for public office. That’s about $400 million more than Trump, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
