Facebook CEO says he has no plans to run for president

"No," he told BuzzFeed. "I’m focused on building our community at Facebook and working on the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative."

The billionaire Facebook CEO first sparked intrigue when he proposed a company stock reclassification that would let him serve in government without losing his majority voting rights.

He's since begun a statesman-like 2017 tour of the US, which recently kicked off with a visit to Texas.

Besides running Facebook, Zuckerberg has ramped up his philanthropy efforts in the last year through the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, which he created with his wife Priscilla Chan in late 2015 as a vehicle to give away 99% of his $52 billion fortune.
