For now, he said he would continue working on growing his company as well as the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) -- the corporation he and wife Priscilla built which makes investments in scientific and leadership research.

According to Buzzfeed, Zuckerberg responded with a "No" when he was asked if he had any plans to run for president.

"I am focused on building our community at Facebook and working on the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative," he was quoted as saying on Tuesday.

A source said that the Facebook founder has privately denied it as well.

"There's absolutely no truth to the idea that Mark is running for office and I've heard it directly from him," the source was quoted as saying.

"Here's the thing: For Mark, Facebook is global community that already plays this huge part in the lives of billions of people around the world and plays an incredibly important role in shaping the base on the issues that matter," the source added.
