Andrew Yang on Principles & Values

Democratic Presidential Challenger & Tech CEO

 


Impeachment won't solve problems that got Trump elected

I support impeachment, but we shouldn't have any illusions that impeaching Donald Trump will 1.) be successful or 2.) erase the problems that got him elected in 2016. The fact is, Donald Trump, when we're talking about him, we are losing. We need to present a new vision and that even includes talking about impeaching Donald Trump.

Not left or right, but forward

Donald Trump had a set of solutions in 2016.We're going to build a wall. We're going to turn the clock back. We're going to bring the old jobs back. America, we have to do the opposite of all of these things. We have to turn the clock forward. We have to accelerate our economy and society as quickly as possible. We have to evolve in the way we think about ourselves and our work and our value. It is not left, it is not right, it is forward.

Let's build a forward coalition toward democracy

I am proof that our democracy still works. Democrats and Americans have one question, who can beat Donald Trump? The right candidate to beat Trump will be solving the problems that got Trump elected, and have a vision of a trickle-up economy that is already drawing thousands of disaffected Trump voters, conservatives, independents, and libertarians, as well as Democrats and progressives. I can build a much broader coalition to beat Donald Trump. It is not left; it is not right. It is forward.

Subsidize journalists to do local reporting

He plans to initiate the American Journalism Fellows, "through which reporters from each state nominated by a body of industry professions... will be give a 4-year grant of $400,000... and stationed at a local news organization with the condition that they report on issues relevant to the district during the period of their Fellowship."
