A recent Politico report reveals that former Republican Presidental nominee Mitt Romney convened a group of political donors for Starbucks founder Howard Schultz.

Politico:

Starbucks founder Howard Schultz’s presidential hopes are already running into resistance from his old coffee cohort.

Wall Street analysts are wary, and company leadership is nervous, about the effect a Democratic bid by its chairman emeritus could have on Starbucks’ business, given its bipartisan customer base. If that weren’t discouraging enough, Schultz’s retirement last month set off a boomlet of pundits urging him not to run. And his recent appearance at a private gathering of political donors convened by Mitt Romney inspired indifference.

This adds another chapter to the Romney-Trump relationship. Romney is running for Senate in Utah and for a few months seems to have signaled a want for better relations with Trump. However, this meeting shows that he is still looking to push Trump out of office in 2020.
