With just six months into his term, President Trump is drawing potential Democrat opponents at break-neck speed.
And now there may be yet another.
Rumors have begun to circulate about the possibility that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is prepping a bid for the White House in 2020.
He’s just kicked off what he’s calling a 30-state tour for the purpose of talking to regular folks about “living, working and thinking about the future.”
It’s looking very much like a Hillary-style non-campaign campaign.
But some analysts are already pointing out that a Zuckerberg candidacy would be a gift-basket for the GOP given his reputation as an aloof, uninspiring leftist robot.
Psst, don’t say anything, but he might be forgetting the other 27 states in which Obama campaigned.
Here’s more from Breitbart…
You’d think that Republicans couldn’t hope for an opponent more stiff, corporate, and alien-like than Hillary Clinton, but then along comes Mark Zuckerberg.
The Facebook founder’s I’m-totally-not-running-for-president tour (unofficial title) is in full swing, as he attempts to communicate with ordinary human beings in places that most hipster tech CEOs consider barbarian territories, like Nebraska.
Rarely a day goes by without a news story about it. Or a meme.
Zuckerberg announced his 30-state tour in a Facebook post in January, saying his aim was to “talk to more people about how they’re living, working and thinking about the future.”
The billionaire tech CEO explained his motivations in highly political terms, insisting on his determination to understand the plight of common Americans. “For decades, technology and globalization have made us more productive and connected. This has created many benefits, but for a lot of people it has also made life more challenging. This has contributed to a greater sense of division than I have felt in my lifetime. We need to find a way to change the game so it works for everyone.”
Despite making stops at noted presidential campaign-trail locations, Zuckerberg has denied he plans a presidential run. Just like virtually every other potential presidential candidate before him, then, including Hillary Clinton.
