Wednesday during an interview that aired on “CBS This Morning,” 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Andrew Yang decried the possibility of Democrats nominating former Vice President Joe Biden as the party’s presidential nominee.
Yang expressed his confidence to CBS’s Anthony Mason that he would be the party’s nominee and argued a Biden nomination would be a move “backwards in time.”
“I think I will be the Democratic nominee,” he said. “If you listen to Joe talk about it, his main argument is that his election is going to be a restoration of the Obama-Biden administration, in essence, which is a move, literally, backwards in time. And so to me, saying that we can somehow erase not just Donald Trump’s presidency.
“But all of the reasons why people voted for Donald Trump, to me is not correct,” Yang continued. “I mean, these things have happened, and we’re going to have to address them. We’re going to have to solve the problems that got Donald Trump elected, one if we’re going to win, and two, if we’re going to move the country forward.”
