Andrew Yang, a warrior who fights with the weapons of this age
Let's remember that Yang's candidacy began on November 6, 2017, when he stood before the Federal Election Commission to participate in the Democratic primaries and from that day until now we have heard a lot about this Asian who fights in the Democratic ranks for president. Among the political promises he has made, he announced that he would personally give a New Hampshire resident $1,000 a month in 2019 to show the effectiveness of his UBI policy, the "Freedom Dividend. He has also spoken of the rights of the LGBT community, the legalization of marijuana and some opiates. And very especially, he supports and has spoken of the use of cryptomedas, a subject that is directly incumbent on us at Steem.
To visualize Andrew's progress, we must say that on August 10, 2018, for example, Yang was a keynote speaker at the largest Democratic fundraiser in Iowa, the Iowa Democratic Wing Ding and every time the fundraiser is on the rise. Undoubtedly, say his fans and some media, the figure of Yang is one of the most attractive of these elections and could go up in a competition where no favorite is yet glimpsed.
Of course, we must say that the race for president will not be easy, especially considering that in the last Democratic debate, businessman Andrew Yang had to wait more than 30 minutes before being asked the first question, something his supporters were quick to point out as a boycott. In the little time he had, just over five minutes, he said he was concerned about climate change, artificial intelligence and China's rise. "China is winning the IA race because it has access to more data than we do," he said.
Regarding this situation, many have pointed out that some media outlets, such as CNN and MSNBC, have tried to overshadow and ignore the figure of Yang. But this is not an obstacle for the businessman, who has looked for other means and other ways to position himself as the favorite of a population that is tired of old politics and is looking for leaders who represent this new era. Hence, one of the resources used for his campaign is the active participation in some notorious media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and podcasts. Likewise, memes, GIF, among others, have been used. A warrior of this era who fights with the weapons of this era.
If we consider that one of the factors that helped Trump to reach the presidency of the USA was his charisma, his position in the media and the publicity of his programs, we would not be surprised if Yang reached the maximum magistrature using the presence and publicity that he has had in some social platforms and that he is commanded by an army of followers called #YangGang.
