Yang, an entrepreneur, says that he is uniquely qualified to challenge Donald Trump given that he has already managed to assemble a coalition of "Former Trump supporters, Independents, Republicans Libertarians, Democrats and Progressives."

Yang says the automation of jobs - particularly in manufacturing - led to the economic situation which caused Trump's election. He believes Trump touched on some real issues, but that he offers the opposite solutions.

Yang emphasized his primary campaign promise: a universal basic income (UBI) which he called the "freedom dividend" where every 18+ American citizen would receive $1000 per month regardless of income level.

Yang also supports a "Medicare for all" platform instead of the current private insurance/ACA model.
