Over the weekend, 2020 Democrat Andrew Yang continued furthering his presidential campaign. On Sunday, the candidate sat down with ABC News and discussed the current direction of the Democrat Party; Yang also shared his thoughts on the crusades to impeach President Trump.
Unlike many other members of his party, the tech entrepreneur believes that impeachment-happy Democrats are missing the greater picture. When speaking with ABC News host Jon Karl, Yang made the assertion that President Trump is the “symptom” of a greater problem and not the disease itself.
The 2020 Democrat also made a point of stating that Democrats “haven’t asked themselves the hard questions” about Trump’s 2016 victory, per reports from Townhall.
Reviewing Yang’s Take on Democrats and President Trump
During Yang’s interview, he asserted that President Trump won the 2016 election as a result of America “[automating] away” millions of manufacturing jobs in swing states like Iowa, Michigan, Ohio, etc.
The Democrat candidate then went on to claim that a similar loss of jobs is projected to follow in the trucking, fast food, retail, and call center industries. Shortly thereafter, Yang also touched on the importance of handling technological advancements in a proper manner.
Later on-air, Yang stated that Democrats are “acting like Donald Trump is the cause of all our problems.” This assertion came shortly after the 2020 candidate reminded listeners of the retail industry’s decline, increased stress levels, suicides, financial problems, and drug/mental health issues.
Ultimately, Yang stated that Democrats must look beyond President Trump and solve the real problems at hand.
A Closer Look at Yang’s Presidential Campaign
At this time, Yang, like other 2020 Democrats, is focusing on campaigning in states like Iowa and New Hampshire. Virtually all leftist candidates are doing their best to solidify themselves in primary voting states and win as many votes as possible.
At this time, Yang is trailing behind several other running Democrats, but he’s not letting this stop him. The tech entrepreneur recently ended his feud with MSNBC, citing the importance of connecting with Americans; Yang previously took issue with the network for failing to ask him enough questions at the fifth Democrat debate and excluding him from election infographics.
