DES MOINES – Andrew Yang is taking aim at some of his rivals for the democratic presidential nomination.

In a brief interview with Fox News on Friday after the interview to the Des Moines Register “soapbox” at the Iowa State Fair – a tradition for the White house hopefuls – Yang, universal basic income” proposal is “twice as good” as a similar plan of top-tier primary candidates Sr., Kamala Harris of California


The New York entrepreneurs – once the longest of long shots for the White house – is of the essence in polling and in the number of contributors to his campaign in the last few months. On Thursday, he became the ninth candidate to reach the threshold values necessary for the third and four rounds of the Democratic presidential primary debates, which will take place next month and in October.

One of the reasons for the first applicant newfound popularity is his so-called “freedom dividend”, the numbers would be paid to every adult American a $1,000 per month and would, through a national value-added tax. The plan, which he led, when he began his presidential campaign a year and a half ago, grabbing a lot of buzz late.

Last year, Harris called for a bill in the Senate, the “LIFT of the Middle Class Act”, the rising cost of living for the middle class and working families. Although it is not a universal basic income, it would work up to $500 per month to families through tax reductions. While you are introduced to the legislation before its candidacy was announced at the beginning of this year, was the fight, Harris highlighting her proposal to the presidential election.

Asked about the Harris plan, Yang, Fox News,” $said $ 1,000 in a month is twice as good as $500 dollars a month, and the Americans can do the math.”


Yang reacted to the recent verbal gaffe by Ex-Vice President Joe Biden, the front-runner in the democratic nomination race.

Speaking in Iowa on Thursday, a crowd of people of an Asian, and Latino-PAC event, Biden – to discuss how the challenge of low-income students, said: “the poor children are just as bright and talented as white children,” before quickly adding “wealthy children, black children, Asian children.”

The gaffe quickly grabbed a lot of attention on social media.

Yang told Fox News: “I think that Joe Biden Biden than Joe.”

He added that Biden stressed obviously misspoke, but that it was “poor choice of words.”


Yang had also made weighed in on the controversial tweet by Rep. Joaquin Castro of Texas, twin brother of the former Housing and Urban Development secretary and democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro – including the names of 44 individuals from San Antonio, the maximum possible contribution of President Trump, the re-election campaign this year.

To see In his tweet — that said only publicly available information to the donor – Castro: “it is Sad so many San Antonians, as of 2019, a maximum donor to Donald Trump…your posts are fueling a campaign of hate, labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.'”

The post fast, swift game moved, especially by conservatives, who stressed that the Congressman was targeting private citizens for political purposes.

Castro, the Chairman of his brother’s presidential campaign.

Under questions from journalists earlier on Friday at the Iowa State Fair, Julian Castro, Fox News said, “it is OK for anyone to harass someone else. It does not matter where someone comes from, from the right or the left side. It is not okay for people to harass other people.”

The defense of his brother, Castro highlighted the “my brother’s a list with the names of people who are already maxed out on the Trump campaign. This is public information. This type of information, all the time. And to claim for anyone, or suggest that it is not so, that is simply untrue.”

“He did not, it put her addresses. He didn’t put down their cell phone numbers,” Castro argued. “What he has done is not doxing. Who understands what white is not doxing, that’s what he did.”

The Castro controversy, Yang asked Fox News “his bad practice, to air to available public information for political purposes.”

But Yang told reporters: “what I love about the rules is that they are transparent. Everyone can see what they are. And then we have hit all of us, to certain benchmarks. And so to me of course, I’m biased a bit, because we only have the debates. So I think the rules are great.”

And targets some of the lower classes, contenders, Yang added, “anyone who complains about the rules, you have to see it for all of us for months.”
