Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang warned that the Democratic Party was becoming the party of the ‘coastal urban elites’ in the eyes of the working class American, insisting the country would ‘get worse’ if it didn’t work to represent more in the country.
The wealthy New York businessman voiced his concern while appearing on a CNN panel on Wednesday with Don Lemon, sharing an insight to some of the responses he received while on the campaign trail.
The warning echoes similar sentiments made by Bernie Sanders (I-VT) last week.
‘So you have to ask yourself, what has the Democratic Party been standing for in their minds? And in their minds, the Democratic Party, unfortunately, has taken on this role of the coastal urban elites who are more concerned about policing various cultural issues than improving their way of life that has been declining for years!’
Frankly, both parties would be better served, and would better serve, if they were more concerned with the issues that impact the middle and working classes. Trump started that turn for the Republican Party.
