The rumor mill is churning again. This time, there's chatter that former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is considering running against President Donald Trump...but as an independent. Democrats are freaking out over the possibility because they believe Schultz could hand the election to Trump.

Schultz reaffirmed Democrats' fear during an interview with "60 Minutes" on Sunday. Here are some highlights:

Schultz quickly created a Twitter account and began tweeting:

What we're seeing taking place between the Democrats is very similar to what we saw in 2010 with the rise of the Tea Party. Progressives, and even Centrists for that matter, are tired of the Democratic Party. They feel as though the mainstream Democratic Party no longer share the same values as they do. We're bound to see a very, very packed 2020 Democratic field.
