Trump is doing the people’s business


Last week Brooklyn-born billionaire barista Howard Schultz hung up his apron and stepped away as executive chairman of Starbucks to contemplate a potential presidential run in 2020.

And in just 18 months, Trump has already checked off a lot of the boxes that matter to people.
