WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is set to further explain his vision for an independent presidency outside the two-party system in a speech at Florida's Miami Dade College.

According to a copy of his prepared remarks obtained by The Associated Press, he will further explain what a potential Schultz presidency could look like, including a pledge to assemble a Cabinet that spans the political spectrum and that consists of a greater share of women than that of any previous president.

Schultz is a lifelong Democrat who recently registered as an independent. He has been weighing a run for president despite concerns from some Democrats that an outside challenge could unintentionally help President Donald Trump win another term in office. Schultz has dismissed concerns that he'd be a spoiler.
