Howard Schultz sounds a lot like a guy running for office.

The outgoing Starbucks Corp. Chairman -- who has thrust the coffee chain into thorny social issues in recent years and took thinly veiled jabs at Donald Trump during the 2016 election season -- laid out a centrist vision for the U.S. during a television appearance on Tuesday, adding to speculation that he’ll mount a run for the White House in 2020.
