Andrew Yang

Andrew Yang is an entrepreneur and presidential candidate vying for the Democratic nomination in the 2020 election. He is a fringe candidate with no political background, but he has found a devoted following with his mostly progressive platform, which includes a universal basic income proposal. Some fans are within the “alt-right” community; prominent white nationalists such as Richard Spencer and Andrew Anglin have promoted him (Yang condemned them and their views). A controversial view he did express was his aversion to circumcision, once saying that he “highly aligned with the intactivists” and would include that view into public policy. Yang later walked back his comments and said the decision to circumcise should be up to the parents. Read more below!
