Businessman and Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang pledged on Monday to support the eventual Democratic nominee, even if it is not him, ruling out a minor party or independent run.

“I would never do anything that would increase the chance of Donald Trump becoming president [again],” Yang said at a Washington Post Live event. “The goal is to beat that man, get him out of the Oval Office.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Yang, a formerly little-known ex-lawyer and entrepreneur, launched his campaign in late 2017, warning of the societal and economic changes automation would continue to bring to the United States. To counter it, he has proposed implementing universal basic income in the form of a “Freedom Dividend” of $1,000 a month to U.S. citizens.

Yang also “shamed” the Weather Channel because they didn’t include him in a climate change special that will include other 2020 candidates, according to the Washington Examiner. They report:

A storm is brewing in the Democratic primary contest as entrepreneur Andrew Yang’s campaign said it is “disappointed” the Weather Channel did not invite him to participate in its 2020 special on climate change.

“Andrew Yang has released an extensive and detailed plan to combat climate change and we’re disappointed that the Weather Channel didn’t reach out to let their viewers hear about it, especially given his place in the polls and fundraising,” said Zach Graumann, Yang’s campaign manager.

“Andrew Yang is focused on real solutions for the American people, and as we’ve seen in the past week, whether it’s at the debate or the 10-hour Q&A he conducted on Friday, the American people want to hear what Andrew Yang has to offer. The media needs to learn from the mistakes of 2016 and get it right this cycle,” he added.

Yang’s campaign noted the candidate’s extensive policy plan — intended to achieve net-zero emissions overall by 2049 — in a statement to the outlet.
