Andrew Yang: "When We Are Talking About Donald Trump We Are Losing"

|

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang warned at the fourth DNC primary debate Tuesday that Democrats "need to present a new vision," saying: "The fact is, Donald Trump, when we're talking about him, we are losing."

CNN, ANDERSON COOPER: Mr. Yang, do you think there's already enough evidence out there to impeach the president? Please respond.



ANDREW YANG: I support impeachment, but we shouldn't have any illusions that impeaching Donald Trump will, one, be successful or, two, erase the problems that got him elected in 2016. We're standing in the great state of Ohio, the ultimate purple state, the ultimate bellwether state.

Why did Donald Trump win your state by eight points? Because we got rid of 300,000 manufacturing jobs in your towns. And we are not stopping there. How many of you have noticed stores closing where you work and live here in Ohio? Raise your hands.

It's not just you. Amazon alone is closing 30 percent of America's stores and malls, soaking up $20 billion in business while paying zero in taxes. These are the problems that got Donald Trump elected, the fourth industrial revolution. And that is going to accelerate and grow more serious regardless of who is in the Oval Office.

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.
