The ascension of Trump to the presidency has left a power vacuum on the left, as liberals jockey to become the frontrunner for the Democratic ticket in 2020. Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) is an increasingly popular name being floated, but she and other Democratic politicians may end up facing opponents from outside the political arena.
Many are speculating Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder and CEO of Facebook, may end up running for President. He’s been making increasingly politically-minded comments, including a recent Facebook status in which he defended DACA in light of Trump’s recent attacks on the immigration policy:
Zuckerberg then took the time to comment on many of the responses to his post, essentially partaking in a cyber town hall discussion.
It’s entirely possible that Zuckerberg has no interest in politics, and is just voicing his opinions. Although, if he does intend to run, this is a good way to start.
While it’s too soon to say if he’s a viable presidential candidate, there is no denying that he’s a good American, and passionate about issues that matter. He displays a deep understanding of the policies in a way Donald Trump doesn’t care to. There is absolutely no denying Zuckerberg would be a far superior president to the ignoramus currently squatting in the Oval Office.
