Liberty Alliance vice president Joe Wurzelbacher, better known as "Joe The Plumber", said Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz should focus on hiring 10,000 veterans rather than pledging to hire that number of refugees.

Wurzelbacher called Schultz' announcement "political grandstanding".

He said that Schultz ironically can only make such a pledge because of the policy platform of President Trump, who the executive opposes.

In order to hire 10,000 new employees, the economic climate must be such that 10,000 new jobs can be created, ostensibly through Trump's agenda, Wurzelbacher said.

For people to afford "overpriced coffee" they have to have jobs too, he added.

Wurzelbacher said he would support any boycott of Starbucks over the new announcement because no one in that type of demonstration would break windows or set limousines ablaze as Inauguration Day protesters did.
