    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg speaking during the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2016 event in Barcelona, Spain. Zuckerberg says he won't run for president, despite speculation.

    Mark Zuckerberg has no intentions of running for president.

    The billionaire Facebook CEO gave a simple “no,” to the idea, dispelling the idea that he might run for office, NBC News reported. Zuckerberg said he’s focused on building the community at Facebook, and working on the Chan Zuckerberg initiative.

    Zuckerberg’s actions, including a New Year’s resolution to finish visiting people in all 50 states while meeting new people in each one, sparked speculation over the past few months. 

    Politicians typically embrace their religion, and he also recently announced that he recognizes a higher power. He used to be an atheist.
